Heather Watson wins 11 games in a row to win 6-3 6-0

Well after the first few games of the match this looked like being a close and tense match between Heather Watson and the 20th seed Sloane Stephens but when the American went 3-1 up no one would have believed you that in fact that would be the last game in the match that the American won as she fell 6-3 6-0 to Great Britain’s Heather Watson who was efficient and effective on way to victory.

Heather defended really well from behind the baseline chasing down a lot of ball against Sloane and dictated a number of points from that standing position in the centre of the court which can be dangerous.

There were a number of rallies we saw Heather stood in the centre of the court on the baseline and was hitting the lines with forehands and backhands moving Sloane about and running the show but sometimes Sloane did go big into where Watson was stood and forced some errors but overall a very good performance from the Brit who had some good numbers on the board.

12 winners / 12 unforced errors
1/1 net points won
5/6 break points won

She was helped out by 31 unforced errors from Sloane. I wouldn’t have said all were unforced as Heather played a smart game of going into the space and forcing Sloane to make shots she didn’t really want to.

2 matches 2 wins, up next for Heather Watson is Yanina Wickmayer who she has never beaten on three previous occasions…
