Seven years ago British number two Heather Watson won the girl’s title at the US Open however the Brit’s wait for a win in New York goes on.
For the sixth year running Heather has gone out of the tournament in the first round and is still searching for that first main draw win.
Heather was up against qualifier Richel Hogenkamp in the first round but bowed out to the world ranked 165 in straight sets. After losing the first set Heather did call on the trainer and was in tears after the first set with some injury causing her pain.
The wait for that first main draw win at the US Open must be on her mind and to lose and be injured at the final major of the year is tough but I have no doubts Heather will be back and ready to go once again!
