Watson through to Wimbledon third round

Watson through to Wimbledon third round

British hopeful Heather Watson has an extra incentive to make the second week of a grand slam for the first time in her career after her coach pledged to shave his legs if she is successful.

She added: 'I made those big goals years ago.

Should she beat former world number one Victoria Azarenka on Friday, Phillips will have to honour an uncomfortable promise. Making the second week of a slam would be huge for me.

CNN is more trustworthy than Trump!
Describing his tweets (all adults): undignified 47%. mean 34%. entertaining 26%. presidential 7%. In the Trump-CNN battle, though, Republicans and Democrats are on completely different pages.

She dropped out of the top 100 and failed to qualify for the French Open but things finally came together again in Eastbourne last week, where she reached the semi-finals.

"It's been one of my goals forever", she said.

She then rose to a career-high mark of 38 in January 2015 before slipping down again.

"She stepped up in the second set, but I was able to keep my cool and stay with her".

Sony to press vinyl for the first time since 1989
Although the records will mostly be sold in Japan, the decision is indicative of vinyl's stunning return to prominence. According to stats physical music sales represented 73% of total record industry revenues in Japan previous year .

Watson combined some excellent movement on the grass with some heavy hitting and outclassed her Latvian opponent to reach the third round for a third time. I had to expect that she would raise her level after the first set and I just had to remain calm and adjust my game. Against such an aggressive player like Sevastova, Watson credited her win to some tactics, "Uhm, I just kind of went out just focusing on myself, not too much on what she was going to do".
