Which court might it have been on?

Re: Heather Watson

Hampton just beat Hantuchova- it's her that SHOULD win. Let's not get carried away!

It's certainly winnable but I'm not expecting a win by any means

I think it could have been on court 2 at least. Now because it's Hampton it might be ct 3 or 18.
If it were Hantuchova it may have also been tba and that may have meant a late night centre or court 1 possibly.

I disagree.

Heather has already beaten her in the past. Hampton is not thinking "I should win this".
This match is probably 50/50 and is there for the taking to whomever executes their gameplan.

One win over a player of Hantuchova's calibre doesn't make her the favourite. I'm not saying she isn't but I'd also say Watson has to consider herself the favourite seeing as it's her home slam and she beat Hampton in their only other meeting.

Heather seems to have become such a celebrity that it is on court 2 without Hantuchova playing.

Re: Heather Watson

And a new career high ranking--and this time she won't be going back out for, hopefully, a long time.

She doesn't have that much to defend for the rest of the year. Here's hoping!
