Heather Watson qualifies for Brisbane International main draw

British number three Heather Watson has qualified for the main draw of the Brisbane International with a 6-4 6-4 victory over Jarmila Gajdosova.

Watson, 21, broke her Slovak-Australian opponent six times during the 92-minute final qualifying match.

She joins the world's top two, Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, in a high-quality main draw.

Watson has dropped to 121 in the world after a tough 2013 campaign which was hampered by glandular fever.
