Heather's Cheering Thread
 
After winning her second round match at the junior aussie open i think its about time heather deserves her own thread. She won her first grade 1 title in 2008 at Yucatan, Mexico and reached the final of the prestigous eddie herr junior tournament.:) Good luck against Miyabi Inoue heather :D:D

Yes Watson has risen up the rankings thelast few months and have been playing really well and has been given enough credit, lets hope it will be a British final.

Yeh Im glad she has her own thread. She is a great player no doubt. I dont get why her and Laura didnt do doubles together but w/e :lol: Its equally annoying that they are out on the very outer courts all the time - I wanna see her and Laura play as I havent seen much of Heathers game.

Well Heather won, 7-6 (7-1), 4-6, 6-4, so big congratulations to her for really griding out a tough won in what must have been horrendous conditions (it reached 44 degrees, so it was probably over 50 actually on the court).

It will be tough for Heather in the next round as she is bound to be feeling the effects of this match and she is up against a top seed.

Well played Heather, great battling win.

Gonna be really tough against Pervak but whatever happens its been an excellent run.

(Hopefully it won't be too embarrassing for some of the earlier posters on the board.) ;)

i saw her play at eastbourne last year. she had a nice forehand but it was hard to say how she played because it was so windy and they were basically rolling in the serves (she played coco vandeweghe who has a great serve yet her serve looked slower then heathers)

According to her Dad, Heather's first senior tournament will be at Clearwater in Florida in March, (see 4 mins into the interview on the following link).

Looking at the ITF website, the only tournament taking place in Clearwater, Florida is a $50,000 event that starts in February. It that's the one it's quite a big tournament to start your senior career at.

Wow, nice to see she is ambitious! Perhaps the organisers offered a WC and it was just too good to be true :p

Best of luck, sad that she lost ;(

I'm guessing she will recieve a WC / QWC being a Bolitary girl, as its unlikely that an unranked player would gain direct acceptance in a $50k. Nice interview, its good to hear that she thrives on the big stage and doesn't get (too) nervous

Re: Heather Watson
 
Heather is 219th alternate at $50k Clearwater starting 23rd Feb. So even though withdrawals are inevitable, the chances of her playing this event without a wildcard are pretty much zero. Hopefully she'll get one in qualifying.
