Re: Heather Watson

Benesova in the first round is certainly winnable. She's the same height as Heather and won't be hitting winners everywhere. She has a career 3-10 record at Wimby.
In fact, I'd be disappointed if Heather didn't win this. Hantuchova in the 2nd rnd, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

Re: Heather Watson

Fantastic draw If Tara can beat her in 42 minutes then I think Heather will beat her too

Re: Heather Watson

It's a good draw, but you just never know when Benesova will show up. 100 points for Hev will be massive for her if she can get through this. Good luck. I think the bottom half of the draw plays Monday, therefore Hev should be playing then. Don't quote me though.

I forgot about that.
Although Benesova was not trying that day as she was angry at her coach or something. Nonetheless, she hates grass. Heather is favourite to win this.

Re: Heather Watson

Iveta is rubbish on grass so this has to be considered winnable. I like them both though - but hope Hev wins this....

Re: Heather Watson

good chance to finally get back inside the top 100 if she beats Benesova...

Re: Heather Watson

Won very handily - her work ethic is second to none. Looked like she enjoyed her CC debut

Yes, apart from the mixed doubles title she won at Wimbledon last year. Clearly wasn't having a good day on grass today.

Heather did well and this is a big win for her.

Re: Heather Watson

So happy for Heather, especially after the injury last year. After the first 4 games of the match, I pretty much knew Heather had too much all round game on this surface for Benesova.

Would have been nice for Heather to play Hantuchova as I feel she was there for the taking (as Hampton proved) and would likely have been on a bigger court. Nonetheless, cannot complain with drawing Hampton whom Heather has beaten already in the past.

Re: Heather Watson

Finally, they published her post-match interview transcript.

Also, a good article on the Beeb.
