Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Has a good draw in Birmingham actually.

Opens up against Czink, who has not been in good form lately.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Nice win Czink can be tricky on her day.

Kudryavtseva next. Two of her career highlights include A) pushing Venus to 3 at Wimbledon and B) beating Sharapova at Wimbledon. She likes playing on the green stuff! Heather will have to be on form. GL, Hev

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Argh DFs on match point to lose 6-4 6-3. Wasn't aggressive enough to cause Alla too many problems, was waiting for errors which after 4-4 first set didn't come often enough. Pity cos after this match the draw was open to be taken advantage of. Hopefully some more practice and on to Eastbourne.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

That last game summed up an underwhelming performance. 3 times the rally was on and any advantage/disadvantage from the serve had gone and Heather hit the ball out or into the net when under no pressure. Bread & butter shots from the back of the court going out.

Then a DF at match point.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Wish Heather had a stable and permanent doubles partner! Laura's bagged herself a doubles legend and Heather deserves one too, she's a champion! Can't believe Erakovic left to her to gloryhunt with Cara Black lol. Maybe she should convince Liezel to partner her in future...could you imagine Huber/Watson Vs. Robson/Raymond. WOO.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Hev has Lepchenko in Eastbourne R1. Could have been worse. C'mon Hev!

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

I was at the match today....I don't understand what happened to Heather after playing well to win the 2nd set. It seemed like she went down 0-5 in the 3rd within about 10 minutes!

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Alright, I watched most of a the match. My thoughts (because I know you're all on the edge of your seat ):

I think when both players were at their best it was quite an even affair, and a very enjoyable match to watch. The problem was that Vesnina could maintain that high level for most of the match, only had a couple of dips in the second set, and Heather went walkabout for long periods. A few of these concentration lapses could be explained with bad calls (like in the 4th game of the first set) but others were a complete mystery. Going into the 3rd she had the momentum, had the confidence and Vesnina seemed to be going through her worst patch of the match, yet she completely broke down. Rallying shots sailing way over the baseline, serve suddenly lost its bite. Really strange.

But I've seen enough from her in these past two weeks to have faith that things will get better from here. She is still coming back from illness, we have to remind ourselves. I look forward to seeing her at Wimbledon, but in all honesty I think the US hardcourt swing could be the time where she fully gets back to where she was at the end of last year.
