Wow Heather in the first set she won 100% of first serve points and dropped just one point on serve, fully deserved win as vesnina failed to find any of the court hardly.

she needs to work on some downthe line shot/ bigger angle while defending to be more dangerous

I thought a Budapest final would put her back on track - nope.

Wow, didn't think Heather had that kind of serving in her. Good stuff! :yeah:

Great performance by Heather, as Vesnina is no slouch. She just seemed a lot more determined and focussed than the Russian, well done, a well-deserved place in the second round after qualifying, she seems back on course after a depressing start to 2012. :worship:

Yay Heather! So pleased for her, they way the British media goes on you'd think Robson was the only "good" young Brit.

Good luck in round 2 Heather!

Wasn't that last shot Vesnina hit out?

Anyway, I just woke up to see that last game, and judging from that and the stats, Elena sucked again, so...

Go and win your first doubles GS title!

Vesnina :rolleyes:. Hezza's been crap for months, it's sad that you were worse :o.

Just reviewed Vesnina's GS record and she has lost in the first round 9 of the last 10 times, and that tenth occasion was a second round loss at Wimbledon last year. She has not reached the third round of a slam since US Open 2009 and her overall record at Roland Garros is 1/7 with her only win coming in 2009, losing 1r six times 2006-8 and 2010-12. :help:

Best I have ever seen Watson play. Good serve, rock-solid defense and controlled aggression. She brings that in round two, she might take advantage of the usual Görges lapses.

:woohoo: Well done Heather! In that first set you looked :eek: But the 2nd set was just Vesnina errorfest! Onto the next round, you could take Goerges if she has one of her shocker days! :lol:

Heather Watson :bowdown: . She is such a fighter, she loses her serve wins it back in the next game, loses her serve breaks in the next game, amazing spirit. :woohoo:
good luck in your next match against Görgeous
