British No.1 Heather Watson crashed out in the semi-finals of the Aegon International at Eastbourne today.

She was beaten 6-3, 6-1 in only 61 minutes on centre court by American Madison Keys.

It was a repeat of Watson's defeat by Keys in the first round at Wimbledon last year, when she was hit by glandular fever.

Keys faces Angelique Kerber in the women's final tomorrow.
