And I get to see it on my tablet! And just in case we didn't believe them, we get a camera shot of the light which shows the rain better.

Heather got broken serving for the match and it is now 5-6 on serve. Hope she can hold it together.

Fought her way through that and won the tiebreak 7-3. Faces Johanna Larsson in the QF, which may well still be played today, but it will be very late at night by the time Heather plays, as it is already 10.15pm there.

Heather is back out on court, playing to face Cornet in the SF tomorrow.

It can be cold and wet in Australia at this time of the year. I have spent several really wet Christmases  there you can have the four seasons on the same say.

Tough QF for Heather, she got broken at 4-5 in the third set and that was that. Gone 2am when they finished. Sadly this means her ranking drops, but a good couple of matches in Melbourne would help that a great deal since she lost in the first round last year.

Sadly for Heather, Babos has put her out in the first round of AO.   7-6 7-5 7-5.  Both played well by the sounds of it (was listening on 5 Live).

Heather got really tight when serving at 7-6 5-4 and just couldn't close the match out. She seems to get off to a really good start and then isn't able to maintain the lead she worked so hard to get. She did well to break back when Babos was serving for the match at 5-4 in the third but then got broken immediately.

Think Heather and Jo are playing doubles at the AO.

Fed Cup is the next thing for Heather, hope she can play well there - desert conditions may suit her better, and the team atmosphere is always good. Then there are the middle east tournaments where Heather will probably have to play qualifying. Then she has quite a few points to defend in Indian Wells, but might have to play qualies there as well.

The worst thing about Heather's match was when she failed to serve out the match at 5-4 - she then basically took a mental holiday in the next game and hit four really loose returns. That put huge pressure on her next service game and she played catch-up from there.

TBH, all she had to do to beat Babos was rally. Babos was desperate to end the points. As soon as they went five shots or more, she was looking to drop shot. It was a really mentally weak match by HW.
