Heather Watson

Quote

Heather broke Gibbs's serve in the first game to get back level to 2-2 in the third set, held on to her serve for the next game (although she was up 40-love and let Gibbs back in to deuce) and promptly broke Gibbs again! So she's up 4-2 in the final set and serving for a very important hold, fingers crossed.

And a struggle with several deuces but she held on to consolidate! 5-2! And Gibbs can't hold on and Heather takes the match at 15-40, 6-2. Well done. Not easy to come out cold in the middle of your opponent's serve game. Plus they had to wait forever for the Dimitrov-Troicki match to end.  yay

Well done Heather. That match was important for her. Not only for Rio qualification, but also to help rebuild her confidence in slam matches. First slam match won since Wimbledon 2015.

Watched bits. Heather did a great job, especially holding her serve and getting a lot of first serves in!

Thought Heather played a smart match. Stayed calm at key moments. Hit deep up the middle of the court, didn't over press, and let Giorgi go for too much.

Next match will be tough whoever she plays. Either the big serving Pliskova who just won Nottingham or the very tricky and a tad crazy Strycova who Heather started well against in Rome and then really struggled.
