Since we wrote this article yesterday, some further good news to report – SHE WON! It took three sets and a real mammoth tussle of match points to each player, but Heather Watson will now be the new British number 1, overtaking Laura Robson for the time being, at least.
And yet further good news from The Guardian this morning, with the successes in British tennis this year helping to bring a 17% rise in under-18 girls registered to play tennis in the country.
That momentum thing. It’s really got something behind it.
