Re: Double Top: Harriet Dart

Unfortunately, Harriet couldn't take the last step, and fell in straight sets to the number 1 seed in the final.

Re: Double Top: Harriet Dart

Harriet highlights this article: Harriet Dart is determined to maintain her momentum after comeback from injury - Sport - Hampstead Highgate Express

Quote:
However, her progress was halted by a heel injury called plantar fasciitis, which ruled her out from October to February this year.

Now back in England after four weeks on tour, she is looking forward to competing on her favourite surface – grass – and her time in the treatment room has only added to her motivation and resolve.

“I’d wake up and I wouldn’t be able to walk out of bed – it got that bad,” she told Ham&High Sport. “I was mostly at home doing rehab, thinking it would be better and then trying and then stopping.

“It was not a good time, and coming back from injury hasn’t been easy. I struggled a little bit – but I’ve just had the best week of my career to date in Korea.

Re: Double Top: Harriet Dart

Owes a debt of gratitude to Freya and the Wimbledon authorities, with her opponent finishing off a four hour marathon not much earlier in the day. (Harriet has doubles, too, so I guess that's why the match was rushed on, but I still can't shake the feeling that the scheduling was a little underhand.)

Re: Double Top: Harriet Dart

All the British women won their first set in the tournament, but to this point, as soon as they lost a set, they didn't stop. That has to change now.

Anyone know when the last time was we had a qualifier for Wimbledon? I can't remember one, but my memory isn't what it was. I remember Cav getting to the FQR and getting thrashed, so Harriet's already done better than that.

Re: Double Top: Harriet Dart

Loses 6-2 5-7 11-13

Didn't manage to follow every point, so I'm not sure if she got to MP.

Re: Double Top: Harriet Dart

Poor Harriet, so close.

Still, she's done herself a lot of good this week.
