Re: Heather Watson

She faces Chan in R2, Wickmayer retired through injury. Definitely a more winnable match now!

Re: Heather Watson

I really don't want to look ahead but with Wickmayer's retirement, Heather's draw has really opened up. If she beats Yung Jan Chan, she'll face the winner of Jankovic/Czink.

Laura Robson

Re: Heather Watson

Clearly not Heather's day. Loses to Chan 6-3 7-6.

Re: Heather Watson

Heather as a reward of her great results will play Olympics. She was 1st alternate. Now Martić withdrew so Heather takes her place. Now Laura Robson is 1st ALT.

Re: Heather Watson

That is brilliant news! Congrats to Heather! She should have been given one of the spots in the first place in my opinion.

A couple of articles from opposite ends of the newspaper spectrum on the Olympic mixed doubles selection controversy.

Re: Heather Watson

She has a point, of course. She's the top British female in both singles and doubles. However I'm with the people that went with Robson as Murray's partner. With all due respect to Heather, she hasn't worked with Murray like Robson has, and nor can I find much evidence that the two have much of a relationship, which helps Robson's case because the two do quite clearly get along which would influence things given Murray had some say in the decision.
