Watson:  I stayed mentally strong

“I’m obviously very happy. It was tough conditions again today, very windy. And I knew Madison would be tough – we know each other very well on and off the court, and we practice a lot in Florida. I knew it would be a tough one today. And it really was my toughest match of the week.

I was happy I stayed mentally strong and managed to get ahead and hold my nerve at the end.”
