Re: Heather Watson

It's doable. I really hope she does do it.

She played so well in set 1 but then it got a bit odd and complicated.

Heather Watson vs. Bojana Jovanovski

Jovanovski did not tank.

The first set was much closer than the scoreline suggests. Heather came out pushing the ball into the center of the court and rolling her second serve in at around 70mph which Bojana brutally punshed with some huge winners. From *0-1 0-30 Heather began to put a lot more on her second serve and played much more aggressively. The rallies raged on as Bojana was determined to finish the points quickly and Heather tried to prolong them and put the ball in tough positions for Bojana. The difference between the two was that Heather seemed to come up with clutch winners while at full stretch on the big points. This included a running forehand dropshot winner while she was in the doubles lines. Heather served well in the final game of set 1 and took the set with the loss of only one game.

Then the craziness began. Heather had about 6 game points outside of the one game she won in the second set. On three of them she shanked forehands into the crowd, on two she hit routine backhands into the net and on the remaining one she hit a double fault. Bojana did very well though, she added a lot more topspin onto her shots and her shot selection was spot on. She hit some great returns in the final game and that set was hers.

The final set really showed why Heather has such a good record in third sets this year. As the umpire called "time" she jumped out of her chair and ran to the baseline in a Nadal-esque way before playing three stunning points in a row and eventually breaking to -15 with a backhand DTL as good as a winner. What was shocking is that from that moment Bojana decided to crush every single forehand as hard as possible and slice/dropshot every backhand. I dont know if she was injured (she didnt have an ice pack or bandage on after the match) or she just felt like doing it, but it was just so odd. She actually hit some good dropshots but Heather was too quick tand dealt with them accordingly. Bojana played like that for the rest of the set and as Heathers level rose, it became a straightforward walk in the park for Heather.

Re: Heather Watson

Great report, thanks.

According to her post match interview Heather admitted to a having a 'stomach strain'..... maybe that was what was bothering her in the second set?

Whatever, I hope she's feeling good today and like you say..... today's match is definitely doable.

Re: Heather Watson

..and if I'm not mistaken that win is worth 60 points. +20 for qualifying should take her to a ranking of about 250... assuming she can't beat Azarenka..

Yeah, right.. They chose to show James Ward rather than Watson today Although in fairness it was a big win for him also.

But maybe they've woken up now?

Re: Heather Watson

Well she was on an outside court today that probably wasn't televised.

Tomorrow she's on court 1, so it probably won't be shown either I'd much rather watch her and Vika than Stosur/Hantuchova - and I'm a Stosur fan!

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.
