What’s going on with Heather

The Women’s Tennis Association ranks her at 81st in the world but Olympic medalist Heather Watson knows she will have to push herself harder this season if she is to improve.

Despite having pocketed more than $2 million in her professional career to date – she turned pro in 2010 – the right-handed British women’s number two, says she is now more motivated more than ever having dropped 31 places from 50 after taking time off last year.
