Watson: first Brit to make the top 40 since..?

Just wondering, who was the last Brit to make the WTA top 40? Not been done since Annabel Croft perhaps?

Looks like it was Annabel Croft, a few made top 50 since then but didn't quite crack the top 40.

Re: Watson: first Brit to make the top 40 since..?

Just saw this on the WTA website, "Heather Watson went from No.50 to No.40 in making her Top 40 debut. She is the first Brit in the Top 40 since Jo Durie in August 1992"

I like Watson, too bad she won't be as good as she could be.

Exactly. If you compare Robson to Watson, Watson is more consistent, and is higher ranked now, but as Robson has a much bigger game, she'll probably have a better career in the end.

Re: Watson: first Brit to make the top 40 since..?

Durie will be salivating when she gets to commentate on a Watson match this year

but I seriously hope over the next five years we get two seriously elite British players in the top 10.
it's been too long

Re: Watson: first Brit to make the top 40 since..?

I must say that Watson impresses me more than Robson... Her game is smarter. I like it. Robson is one of the many for me and Watson seems to be different. But what do I know

Re: Watson: first Brit to make the top 40 since..?

I think Heather will be a more consistent player through her career. Laura might have the occasional great tournament displaying her big game when everything clicks, but Heather can be more reliable, in my opinion.
