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 (http://www.wtatennis.com/news/article/3122570/title/stats-corner-comeback-kids) shows the top 10 percentages amongst active players.

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

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 :yeah:

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

:D

She's also 5-1 in tiebreaks this year :eek:

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. :facepalm:

Well, she is ranked about that, too.
