Heather Watson diagnosed with glandular fever

Quote:

Doctors have ordered Heather Watson, the British women's No2, to rest, after she was diagnosed as suffering from glandular fever.

The Lawn Tennis Association did not say how long a full recovery may take, although blood tests indicated that the player is at the tail-end of the illness.

She said: "I have been struggling with both training and playing matches and felt so tired and exhausted for months, but now that the doctors have found the cause of this, it explains everything that has been happening to me physically and mentally. I am actually relieved to know what is wrong so that I can get myself on the mend. "I hope to recover as soon as possible by resting my body and getting lots of sleep."

Watson said she already felt better from being at home for a week and is looking forward to getting back on the tour.

Iain Bates, LTA Head of Women's Tennis, said: "First of all, get well soon, Heather, from the whole team. We all know she'll bounce back better than ever. Heather's focus will be on her recovery, and we will do whatever we can to support Heather and help that process." .

Would explain a lot about her recent problems.

No.

Re: Heather Watson diagnosed with glandular fever

Would really explain that bizarre interview she gave to the BBC saying she felt burnt out. I hope she gets well soon!

Re: Heather Watson diagnosed with glandular fever

This was just announced on Radio 1 during their Newsbeat

I mean, I know it's serious, but is it really radio-worthy?

Re: Heather Watson diagnosed with glandular fever

"I had to do some blood tests after Miami and the results have shown that I have traces of Glandular Fever (mono) in my system. There is no prescription for this other than complete rest but the good news is that the doctors have told me I am on the tail end of the fever. This means I have been trying to compete through the symtoms for some time. [..] I already feel better from being at home for a week, and am looking forward to getting back on Tour soon!"

Exactly. That whole thing just didn't feel right. Hope some of the people who put shit on her then are big enough to eat their words now.

Get well soon Heather

Re: Heather Watson diagnosed with glandular fever

Glandular fever and mono are the same? If so, this is hard to believe. If she had Mono, she likely wouldn't be able to even compete or practice at all because the illness is that debilitating.

I had it in January and am just now allowed to start working out again. Her spleen would have ruptured with the amount of running and other things she was doing...
