Plucky Watson is out in third
Friday 18th January 2013, 2:00PM GMT.
SHE put up an early fight, but Heather Watson’s journey in the Australian Open came to an end at the hands of the impressive Agnieszka Radwanska in Melbourne today.
The 20-year-old Sarnian won just two games against the fourth seed in last year’s match at Wimbledon and although she acquitted herself better on this occasion, the outcome was much the same in the Hisense Arena.
Watson eventually lost 6-3, 6-1, but was well in the contest for much of the first set, before succumbing to the Pole’s ruthlessness in the second.
‘Today I went into the match differently from last time. Last time, I didn’t really know what I was going to do, but this time I had a game plan,’ she said afterwards.
‘I have just realised that myself I need to work on mentally staying focused and being there mentally throughout without, you know, blinking, because I can’t let it pass me by,’ Watson added this morning.
