Re: Heather Watson

Will play Hlavackova or Oudin in R2 which will be tough but hopefully that 3.5 hour R1 will have given her some sort of form....

Hopefully it is Oudin who is a mess right now. The match will be on Wednesday

Here's a post match blog from Hev in memphis:
http://www.tennisnow.com/News/Featur...is-Blog-1.aspx

Seems like her coach turned it around in the first set, interesting to here that (understandably) she's been putting a lot more pressure on herself since the Osaka win and thinks that could be partly the reason for her poor performances.
Nice read

Re: Heather Watson

I personally was hoping for a Hlavackova tie, i do not believe she is in good form at all and her erratic hitting may fall into Hev's favour if she's consistent enough. Andi lost with Hradecka in doubles first round as number 1 seeds to Kudryatseva and Dabrowski and hasnt won an awful lot of matches this year on the singles circuit. Hope Hev is up for this, a good opportunity

Re: Heather Watson

I believe she can totally get this title! Get your second WTA Tour title Hev. GL in the QF.

Re: Heather Watson

I wouldn't totally rule it out (how could anyone after Osaka?) but I'm certainly not expecting it. Voegele will be tough but I'm expecting Heather to grind it out again. One match at a time, good luck Hev!

Good win for Heather!
Lets just forget about the 1st set

Re: Heather Watson

Projected CH of 38 after this week if she loses next round, eeking closer to that precious top 32 ranking!

Re: Heather Watson

Hev second up on court 1 today, similar time to yesterday probably.

Re: Heather Watson

I'm nervous and excited for her. I think this is a very good opportunity to at least reach the finals, especially as Voegele, Erakovic and Hampton are all ranked below her. She has beaten Voegele and Hampton before and must know a lot about Marina's game. Hopefully she is physically okay and not too tired from all her marathons this week. But Hev is a brilliant athlete and above all, a real fighter. I've been so impressed how she's kept her cool in the last two matches, I believe if she plays a smart game today against Voegele, working the point, limited errors and improving on her return game, we should hoefully see her in the semi's !!

Re: Heather Watson

Hopefully not to be... loses 6-1 6-2. Voegele looking quite dominant from the stats, looks on form this week have to see how far she goes.

Disappointing for Hev obviously was a good opportunity to make a final with Arvidsson out the way. On to IW and Miami, hopefully a decent draw could do with a big points haul.

Re: Heather Watson

I like Voegele. I think she's underachieved thus far in her career and is showing signs of improvement but nevertheless this is disappointing for Heather. If not the end result, then the scoreline. Yes it's a fast surface but Steffi isn't the biggest hitter out there and Heather's serve should have won her a lot more cheap points. Winning less than half of her service points really seemed damaging.
