It seems that happens to Heather quite a bit when she has a lead and seems to not capitalize on the opportunity. Not sure if she got tight or McHale ended up playing great tennis to come from behind but definitely an opportunity that slipped away. Hopefully she can have a great Europe trip on the clay and then the grass courts soon after. Only great things for Heather toward the future! She can be very good.
(1)Tamira Paszek (AUT) v Ekaterina Ivanova (RUS)
Laura Siegemund (GER) v (wc)Ana Claro (POR)
Stefanie Voegele (SUI) v Katarzyna Piter (POL)
Karolina Sprem (CRO) v (6)Heather Watson (GBR)
thank god for that rain delay, Heather was down 6-1 2-0 and managed to crawl back from the brink winning 1-6 6-3 3-0RET, looks like Karolina still struggling with injuries but a good win for Hev nethertheless holding her nerve in that second set Next up Kasia Piter who defeated Voegele in three. A good opportunity to reach the final round of qualifying however given her slow start today, i don't really know what to expect. Good luck Hev and well done today
