Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Foretz Gacon has beaten her before, hasn't she?

I think Hev is certainly the favourite to qualify from that section, but I have no confidence that she will, given her form over the past year

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Wins her first round 6-4, 6-3. Far from her best but she stayed composed and just did what needed to be done. Finished on an ace too

The lesser Rodionova is still the horrible brat I remember her to be. Must run in the family

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Good start.

Foretz Gacon next. They've played each other four times already. 2:2, but with Hev winning the last two.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Very interesting interview with Heather's new coach.

http://www.spaziotennis.com/2014/01/...ronelli-diego/

(Google translate from the original Italian)

(...)

How did your collaboration with Heather Watson ?
" I lived in Bradenton recently and I was following a junior girl . Nothing important was materializing , however, and I had already made ​​the decision to return to Buenos Aires. But on a Sunday afternoon came the call ... And since then I follow Heather . "

What do you think has the potential Watson ?
"I see her in many potentialities and scope for improvement , it is very competitive, and like all athletes passing periods of ups and downs , I'm experiencing now in more depth. The goal is to give greater continuity of results and performance . Its characteristics are as a player of the summit, it has already proven winning a WTA tournament in 20 years, is not a thing that anyone can do . In terms of ranking, I do not like to say, " this player parties can get 30 , 20 or 10 ." The first mistake made by people, even coaches and players , is to set limits . I believe that there are no limits . I believe that you have or long or short time to reach the peak. Speaking of real goals , she must reunite with old good feelings and deal with a full season away from misfortunes . "

What are you working on in particular?
" The physical aspect is we're working on more . Today a good condition and can make a difference even just counting on his physique . After the Australian Open played in Paris and the Fed Cup in Hungary , Indian Wells and Miami in March , after which will depend on the results obtained . "

Note that differences in training a man or a woman?
" They are different : the look of the game and the mental are very different. Men feel good when they play well. Women need to feel good to be able to play well. Their games often change , as well as their emotions are erratic . Speaking strictly of tennis played in the female continues to see much difference between those who serve better or that move better on the field. In men I think it is the answer to the serve what really matters "

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Nice interview

It seems Heather is on fire and wins the first set 6-0 in about 20 minutes. There's been a bit of a break now though... Who is betting on a Foretz Gacon bathroom break?

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Great to see Hev qualify. Nice work building on the Brisbane results. Think her serve needs a bit of work, some players will definitely exploit that. Ironically Falconi got a better draw as a LL than Hev C'mon though, Dani is beatable.

First up court 2 midnight GMT monday morning.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Hantuchova lost to Barty and Tomljanovic without even winning a set in these past two weeks. Hev has a good chance.
