Re: Heather Watson

Yay, grats! And Happy Birthday!

That should take her to a ranking of about 110.

If she qualifies and wins the first round she should enter the top 100. If she can't make that she then has 80 points coming off on June 14th from Eastbourne last year.
If she can defend some of those points she'll have another chance to enter the top 100 by winning the first round at Wimbledon..

So one shot at the French and another at Wimbledon to enter top 100. Should be good motivation!

Is Sybille Bammer not a potential first rounder?

Re: Heather Watson



Well done! And 1st round looks pretty good. In fact all the Brits seem to have been given relatively kind draws. (And Murray's draw is as good as it could be too)
