Heather Watson

Quote

May be she decided to give Cincinnati a miss? I cannot remember if she was in Toronto.  It's not that long ago, but so much has happened at the Olympics it seems like months ago.
I know exactly what you mean!  Heather did play in the Rogers Cup in Montreal, but went out to Sam Stosur in R1 of the singles, and in the doubles with Bethanie Mattek-Sands, where they went out in R3 - http://www.flashscore.com/player/watson-heather/OMXPbN89/ - so it looks like she decided to skip Cinci.

Jo Konta plays Cinci, but Heather does'nt... Then heather and jo are scheduled for the US Open.

As I said before Heather was supposed to play Cincy qualies. She was packed and ready to leave Rio when she and Andy made the mixed doubles draw. By the time they had lost in the mixed it was too late for Heather to enter qualies.

Hopefully Heather will play qualies for New Haven, Jo is in the main draw there after Cincy.

Unfortunately there was so much else going on that I must have missed that.

Heather faces Richel Hogenkamp in the first round on Tuesday. Hogenkamp caused a huge upset at the Fed Cup in the first round when the Netherlands defeated Russia, but she's struggled with tour life this year.

Heather hasn't got past the first round of the USO since she turned pro, seeming to struggle with the humidity. She did however win the junior USO in 2009.

Hopefully the humidity won't be a factor, at least for the next few days—we had a couple of bad days of it last week but since Saturday the humidity's dropped and the weather's been almost perfect. Hope it lasts! Would be ironic if they don't have to use the roof...

That's good to know. Heather seems to really struggle at tournaments with higher humidity. Her record at the USO is very strange though. Doesn't matter who she plays, or what time or the day, or what court she just can't seem to win a match there.

The USTA seem very excited about their roof. They apparently randomly closed it yesterday evening when Djokovic was on there and it is reportedly very noisy when it is closing or opening.

as Wimbledon mixed dubs champ might Heather and partner get a wild card into the mixed dubs? Not sure how it works.

I'm glad to hear that.  Agree about the roof, but I can't remember a year when it didn't rain at some point during the tournament, and they've said they'll close it overnight if rain is forecast for then.

Apparently it takes 7 minutes to open/close it so I can't see that being problem.
