Re: Heather Watson

#50 in singles and #52 in doubles on the new rankings

I wish I could have seen her winning reaction. No doubt it was too adorable for words

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather Watson

Is the Telegraph doing a series on British women tennis players? Anyhow, here's Heather: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/ten...ing-point.html

Some stuff new to me about her early days in Bradenton.
