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.
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.”
“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…
