Heather is going to have to start to pick up some wins soon or she is going to have to qualify for RG and get a WC for Wimbledon again, but the question is where? Back to ITFs?

Sofia - 2006 champion here!

A good warmup for Sofia's doubles match with Jo-La!

How come Sofia's not an honorary member of your LOB? After all, she's from the original land of blondes - and that ain't California!

She does benefit from the halo effect of being Jo-La's doubles partner (as did Ai and Flavia. Lucie still does.).

There's the LOB.

The Reserves.

Re: Memphis Rd1: Sofia Arvidsson def. Heather Watson 6-2 6-3

ever since losing the final at Shrewsbury to Barthel (which might i add was not a bad loss at all,) Hev has just not looked the same. Lost confidence in her game which was a decent solid player with exceptional movement and good counterpunching play. I think a few ITF's will do her some good and i still have a lot of faith in her rather now than at wimbledon and US.

Also, to note, she is now the British number 4, Laura has overtaken her in the rankings.
