Re: Heather Watson: Career Wins

Added a couple of three set statistics to the OP whilst we wait for more top 50 wins! Hopefully we won't be waiting long.

Just to give the second stat some context, this article shows the top 10 percentages amongst active players.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather Watson: Career Wins

First top 50 win of the year. 10th overall (3 of which are over Cirstea )

Re: Heather Watson: Career Wins

It's hard to believe that Yvonne Meusburger is ranked #38 but she is and Heather beats her in Fed Cup. Second top 50 win of the year, 11th overall. Great weeks for Heather's stats

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather Watson: Career Wins

A few career-firsts for Heather:
- Beat two top-40 players in the same week (Cirstea, Meusburger) in Fed Cup
- Singles and doubles champion in the same week
- Tied for career-best nine-match winning streak

Re: Heather Watson: Career Wins

3rd top 50 win of the year this week in Prague, 12th of her career.

She's also 5-1 in tiebreaks this year

Top 20, top 50, three set, tiebreak and matches won after losing first set stats all effected after this week in Eastbourne (mostly for the good!)

Congrats on you first top 20 win, Hev

Re: Heather Watson: Career Wins

Those stats are really damning. Her more 'aggressive' game really not showing up as a positive thing at all. She's not even hitting more aces than she was - it just sometimes has felt like it. It seems her return game has seriously improved though.

In 2014, her service game was only better than Nara's and Koukalova's - ranked 48th out of top 50 players.
