Wins and losses just blur into one as you move around the world playing matches.
Heather Watson
Everybody believes they can win now. That's why there are so many upsets in the Grand Slams.
Heather Watson
I just need to improve.
I'm trying to be a complete player and have every shot in the game.
There's always going to be people saying stuff.
Every draw's a tough draw.
Even with not having that many matches under my belt, I handled the match against Svitolina well. When I was younger, not having that many matches under my belt, I might not have done that.
Heather Watson
I'm working on staying aggressive in my game and fixing all the little details.
Heather Watson
I did everything – swimming, dancing, and badminton as well as tennis. It was always tennis that I really loved, though.
Heather Watson
Winning titles is a big thing for me.
People ranked No. 80 or No. 90 in the world are tough to play.
I've learned that I can compete at the top level.
I know lots of people who climb very high in the rankings without winning a single title.
Heather Watson
In the men's game, there are three, four, five dominant players who pretty much win everything, but in the women's, anyone can.
Heather Watson
That winning feeling, it's great.
I think I'm realising that careers for tennis players are very short. On the women's side now, players are starting to peak later on, but the average age is about 31, 32 when you finish playing, so I want to make the most of it while I'm young, fit, and healthy. I don't want to waste any time.
Heather Watson
I've learnt I can compete with the best in the world.
You don't just have to be skilled and talented at tennis, but you have to be so physically strong.
Heather Watson
For me, Wimbledon is such a special tournament. I feel at home when I play there, and the grass is perfect.
Heather Watson
With tennis, no one's going to give it to you. You have to be determined.
Heather Watson
At the end of the day, it's just a tennis match. It's not the end of the world.
Heather Watson
If you don't feel hunger, you don't succeed at anything.
