Heather Watson takes time off after another disappointing defeat

Too much tennis for Heather that lost both opener in Indian Wells and now in Miami. In Key Biscane the 20 years-old was defeated by world no.50 Ayumi Morita 1-6 7-5 6-4.

The Match

It was a close encounter. Actually Heather had a very comfortable first set to win 6-1 to then struggle a bit in the last 2. The match ended after 2 hours and 45 minutes.

“I was looking at the stats and I actually won more points, but that can happen in tennis,” Watson added.

“It really hurts, I think I just need to find myself, find my game again.

“I was playing really well, probably the best I’ve played this year, and I think I lost my concentration a bit, but that was enough for her to gain some confidence and step forward, and it kind of pushed me back and I started to play a lot worse.

“I still tried to fight but it just wasn’t good enough, I wasn’t aggressive enough.”

Time Off

“This year I’ve been going a bit too long so I’m a bit burnt out,” Heather said.

“I’ve been thinking about it for a while now and I’m definitely going to take a break from tennis.”

OK… waiting for the come back…
