They do.. This is it right?

Or can they have separate ones?

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

No, that is not quite accurate. This is Heather's thread, but Anne Keothavong has her own forum with lots of separate threads in it. The most popular, successful players have their own forums, and both Heather and Laura are very popular and successful. So, I was wondering when they each get their own forum instead of just having a thread like this one.

Re: Heather Watson

Hev's been doing some press, e.g. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/t...e-8390704.html (though I like this version of the photo better http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012...ish-no1-robson)

Re: Heather Watson

I saw Heather play at Royal Albert Hall and as usual she was a delight. She played a friendly mixed doubles match with Henman, against Keothavong and Phillippousis. Incredibly, I'd say Heather got a bigger cheer than Tim - she completely won the crowd over, always a smile on her face and danced Gangnam Style at the change of ends with the crowd all clapping and cheering her on. My friend who took me is only a casual tennis fan and didn't even know who Heather was, but by the end had fallen in love with her. I love that about our girl.

Anne came across nicely too and I feel a bit sad for her that she was completely ignored by the WTA on their report of this match, in favour of photo after photo of Heather. (Though I'm not a fan of Anne at all really).

Re: Heather Watson

Incidentally, even though it was only an exhibition match and was a lot more relaxed, I have to say heather was by far the best player on court. OK, Henman and Phillippousis don't play regularly and Keothavong is going through a dreadful patch, but Heather shined with some fabulous volleys. Could totally see why she has two WTA doubles titles to her name.

Re: Heather Watson

Piece in the Wail.

Quote:
'For the coming season the soft target is to get into the top 30 and the ultimate one is to make the top 25. It would be great to be seeded for a Grand Slam, which sounds a lot but I believe in setting quite tough goals.'

There is also the incentive to ward off the rising challenge of Laura Robson, although she places that in a wider context. 'I would want to finish the year British No 1, not No 2, but I am focussed far more on what happens in the world rankings in general.'

Nice too see Heather being so ambitious.

Re: Heather Watson

(4)Jie Zheng (CHN) v Jamie Hampton (USA)
Q v Marina Erakovic (NZL)
Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) v Kiki Bertens (NED)
Heather Watson (GBR) v (5)Sorana Cirstea (ROU)

Tricky draw tbh. Both Cirstea and Sveta are incredibly unpredictable!

Good luck!

Re: Heather Watson

Cirstea really strang player. Hope heather wins but think Cirstea is probably favourite at the moment.

Re: Heather Watson

Cirstea is so unpredictable but I fancy Heather's chances here. First match of the season, Cirstea's ball bashing may be a little rusty, Heather has the perfect game to take advantage. Plus she won their last meeting in Miami.
