Watson Makes History At Wimbledon

Guernsey's Heather Watson is into the fourth round at Wimbledon for the first time in her career.

She has beaten Slovenia's Kaja Juvan on Court One in straight sets.

The first set was a close encounter, with Watson edging it 8-6 in a tie-break after a double-fault from Juvan.

The Channel Islander then surged into a 5-0 lead in set two and despite a mini-revival from the Slovenian, Watson closed out the tie to rapturous applause from the British crowd in attendance.

She last reached round three at SW19 in 2017, where she was beaten in three sets by former World No.1 Victoria Azarenka.

Her next opponent is German Jule Niemeier, the world no. 97, after she beat Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko in three sets.

Before that, she'll team up with Harriet Dart in the women's doubles.
