Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Reasons to be Cheering...

Great Clay Court Season!

P13 W11 L2

Collected 285 points from 3 tournaments - average of nearly 90 per tournament. If she played 20 tournaments per year, and got 90 points per week = 1,800 points, world ranking number 26 on the current list.

On the actual WTA list, she should be around 72 in the world. She has no need to play another ITF, unless she wants to, for some time. She is near certain to make the US Open MD cut-off.

On the "Road to Singapore" list, which is a better guide to current form...

http://www.wtatennis.com/road-singles-leaderboard

...she went to Paris as WR 54, and will be about 45 when it updates - and this while demoted to the ITF, with a 2 month injury write-off, and drawing Radwanska and Halep very early in critical tournaments.

Her forehand would probably have less arm in it if her ankle weren't sprained. The new tactics are great. She just needs to get better at judging when to throw in the really agressive shots.

When Heather was diagnosed with the glandular fever, she was about 20 places above Halep in the rankings; and looking more likely to make that critical breakthrough into the top 32. Hopefully, it won't be too long before Heather is ahead again.

That's rough, Dawson. You're referring to the 100K in the 2nd week of Rolly G, right? (Except it seems to have been demoted to a 75K this year. ) I guess Heather needs to rest her sprained ankle for a few days before Birmingham. Meantime, you'll have to make do with Jo Konta, and Naomi Broady for entertainment. Naomi first made her name posing by condom machines in nightclubs but she has a heck of a serve!

It could easily be a $100k. It regularly has a better field than the $100k in Marseille in the same week. But yes my hopes are now with Konta and Broady. I've seen Broady a number of times in Nottingham, and each time I think to myself she could be doing better, especially with that serve! She seems to be doing pretty well this year though.

And I've just noticed the typo in my first post - her her *see her.

That is really odd, considering it will be upgraded to a WTA event next year.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

On the face of it a very nice draw, a good opportunity to get some big points.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Nara could be some trouble with flat groundstrokes all over the court, especially that BH CC!
Hopefully, Wats will come out of this quarter.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Eastbourne

[6] Pennetta vs Q
Watson vs Pironkova
Zhang vs Lepchenko
Safarova vs [2] Kvitova

Trails the H2H 1-2 but her one win did come at Eastbourne in 2010. Since that match, Pironkova has gone onto reach the semis, quarters and 4th round at Wimbledon. Difficult draw but could have been a lot worse.

In my opinion, that is a pretty dire draw. But I think it's more important for her ranking, public interest and her own confidence that she has a good run at Wimbledon. Any wins here are a bonus.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

H2H is actually 2-2. The WTA website doesn't recognise non-world group Fed Cup ties for some reason
