Bally has already stated in press conferences that she will retire after the Olympics.

Heather seems to be determined to take the baton rather quickly.

Has a British woman ever qualified for the French Open and won a round in the same tournament before?

Re: Heather Watson

I was watching bits of Heather's match & I was very impressed with her tenacity and guts when she was saving those SPs in the first set. On the second SP (I think) she went for a gutsy BH down the line & on another point, she hit a backhand defensive lob from way behind the baseline over Foretz head to give her a BP to take it to a tiebreak.

I hope she will get on a showcourt for round 2 again.

Aye, I was wondering about that too.

Maybe today is scheduled for singles for all the players who played singles on Sunday, and *some* from Monday, and then tomorrow is some from Monday and all from Tuesday.

Re: Heather Watson

The schedule is going by halves of the draw. Top half today, bottom half tomorrow.

Re: Heather Watson

Yeah, it's just the three days for round 1 that makes things confusing. Top half were spread over Sunday and Monday, bottom half over Monday and Tuesday.

The players who played on the earlier day within their half have two days rest before round 2.

Re: Heather Watson

Kanepi won 6-1 6-3.

Oh well, it was probably a bit much to ask.. Still a good run; first grand slam victory, first Briton to qualify/win in a long while, and a place in the top 100. Not bad for a weeks work.

Go 1 further at Wimbledon?

Re: Heather Watson

Big ask at the minute - the way the seedings work, she'd either have to beat a seed, or beat someone who has beaten a seed.

It's quite a bit above the level she's used to, and I don't know if she's got the weapons unless her opponent is having a bad day. I suppose I'm hoping she'll get through a round, and anything more is a bonus.

Re: Heather Watson

I believe Kanepi was the highest ranked player Heather has ever played?

In any case her improved ranking should allow her to meet players of Kanepi's calibre more often. She obviously has to step up if she wants to progress further into the top 100, and to do that she needs to play against much tougher opponents than she's used to so far.

Re: Heather Watson

It will be interesting to see how she adjusts to grass, and to the heightened expectations. If she's going straight to Nottingham next week, she might end up getting more practice on the surface than most other players.

I think her overheads and her net play could do with some work, from what I saw of her first round match. I liked her movement and her attitude.
