Watson falls to Hantuchoke, No longer the best?
http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/11/25/article-1230937-03355BA4000005DC-606_468x286.jpg]

Auckland, New Zealand----Heather Watson today fell to a player that was ranked below her in the rankings which certainly throws a wrench in her plans to ascend to the top of the ATC. With losses like these it's going to be impossible for her to put claim to her rightful place at the summit of the rankings. Hantuchova is a player that Hev should NEVER be losing to. We could look at the upside, and say that she gained more points in Auckland this year than last, and that she ascended to number 7 in the world while missing a part of the year last year with injury--however...if results like this happen, the young Brit will have no hope of becoming the player that she dreamed she would be as a child.
