We have three picks from the Nature Valley International in Eastbourne.

The grass-court season continues this week and the ATP and WTA Tours are both in Eastbourne for the Nature Valley International.

Wimbledon may be just a week away but there are two more titles to be won before then and we have picked out the three best bets from today’s matches.

Cameron Norrie vs Jeremy Chardy

Norrie fell at the first hurdle at Queen’s last week but will hope to make the most of a more favourable draw against an out-of-form opponent.

The British number two lost in a deciding set to second seed Kevin Anderson last week but Chardy has won just one of his last five matches so this looks a better chance for Norrie to make the most of the home support.

They have met once before on the ATP Tour and that was last year on hard courts in Atlanta which Norrie won in three sets.

He is the underdog today but is ranked 32 places above Chardy and looks good value to cause an upset.

Kirsten Flipkens vs Caroline Wozniacki

Wozniacki is a former champion at Eastbourne but has had an unusual preparation for the event.

Last weekend she got married in Italy and this is her first match since a first-round defeat at the French Open.

She retired when losing in her two previous matches so there is plenty of reason to oppose here on her first appearance on grass this season.

Two of Flipkens’ appearances in WTA Tour finals were on grass and she reached the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2013 so she looks worth backing as the underdog today.

Sam Stosur vs Sofia Kenin

Kenin staged a stunning comeback to win the Mallorca Open on Sunday.

The American saved three match points in the second set to come from behind and defeat Belinda Bencic 6-7(2) 7-6(5) 6-4 in two hours and 42 minutes.

It was a second title of the season for the sixth seed, who also knocked Serena Williams out of the French Open before losing in a deciding set to eventual champion Ashleigh Barty.

Fatigue is the only worry for her today but she will be full of confidence after climbing into the world’s top 30 and can win in straight sets against 35-year-old Stosur, who has had to come through qualifying to reach the main draw.
