It was nearly as if she played too well, and when her level dropped, Sevastova capitalised on three double faults in one game to move 2-1 ahead. Obviously I know how she plays and she's a great player and I was expecting her to be playing her best so I was prepared for that.

The British No.2 played a flawless first set on a baking Court Two and then twice recovered from a break down in the second to win 6-0, 6-4.

"Making the second week of a Slam would be huge for me, it's been one of my goals since forever", she added. I feel like if I post a picture or something, I usually post a motivational quote underneath.

"But I said "No, your girlfriend will kill you".

Watson, from Guernsey, played to an nearly full Number Three Court, with shouts of "come on Heather!" heard between points.

"And if I do, my coach said he'd shave his head". I just have to remain calm and just adjust my game.

"They really help me".

"I'm happy my new team and practices are going really well". I don't want to pay a lot of attention to those aspects.
