Re: Heather Watson

I loved watching Heather play. It's so refreshing to see someone that actually seems to enjoy the game. Shame about the loss but there's plenty of years and talent for her to go far.

Re: Heather Watson

Good interview with Heather.

Re: Heather Watson

Another good article with quotes:
The Guardian—Heather Watson slips under the radar in rise to prominence

Also, Heather should be playing Tuesday sometime. Good for me, seeing as I finish work at 2pm that day.

The last of the three men's matches is John Isner vs. Nicolas Mahut. So, I suppose that reduces the chances of playing even more.

On the other hand, the first of the three men's matches is already in the third set. So that increases the chances somewhat.

Re: Heather Watson

Obviously, I'm gutted about the injury. She was playing so assured.

But what really impressed me the most was how she conducted herself throughout the match (especially after the injury). Boris Becker often states "if you're injured, never let your opponent see it", and I'm sure Heather must have been operationalising that advice. It was great to see such a composed head on young shoulders. This was arguably the biggest contributing factor to the final set being so close. She could have fell away and started to feel sorry for herself—but didn't. There was never any show of peevishness and she held herself like a true professional. Absolutely superlative.

Re: Heather Watson

Bad luck to Heather in getting that injury. But she still fought her hardest from the sounds of it. Tears in the press conference but she seems to be happy with nice words about her from Rio Ferdinand on twitter.

I was on Court 3 on Tuesday when she was scheduled but obviously it got postponed due to the lateness so I never got to see her play live. Maybe next year.

Re: Heather Watson

Shame that she lost. But strongly agree with comments here that she did not give up and fought until the very end, despite injury. learning curve, and can continue building after championships to establish herself in Top 50 hopefully got plenty of time. Hopefully the injurys not serious.

Sure Guernesy and Britains proud of you! keep up good work.

Re: Heather Watson

Heather and Stephanie met earlier this year, and Heather only lost one game!


http://www.wtatennis.com/headtohead/heather-watson_2255881_16047/0,,12781~16047~9644,00.html


But Stephanie has just had a good win here, so I guess she's on better form now.

Re: Heather Watson

Lost 1-6 in the third.

That was a classic example of not taking your chances. Heather was in control for almost all the second set—but only took 1 of 10 bp's.

Oh well, move on to the next tourny, Heather.
