It's disappointing that Heather actually had a very big off day! 8 Winners to 42 Unforced Errors!
If she had played even marginally better she could have walked away with win but either way this is a HUGE confident booster- taking Maria to 3 sets and making her work for over 3 hours (whilst playing badly) is incredible! I'm very proud of Heather and her wins over Hlavackova and Lisicki should also boost her confidence!
Well done Heather
