Heather Watson stuns 18th seed Anastasia Sevastova at Wimbledon

"Whoever I play in the third round is a very tough match, and I have no idea what the draw is".

Now Watson must try to win her first match in five attempts against former world No.1 and new mum Azarenka, who is playing her first grand slam since giving birth to son Leo just before Christmas.

Speaking about the recent wave of players pulling out of matches injured, Watson told the paper she "could not retire during a match".

She teamed up with coaches Phillips and Colin Beecher in the spring at the start of the clay court season and it appears to have achieved the right results after reaching the semi-finals in the Aegon International Championship at Eastbourne last week. "I feel like my tennis is just really improving at the moment".

There was also no evidence that she was distracted by an electronic device at the time of the crash. The report says Williams was driving an estimated speed of eight kmh.

It is the third time that the Guernsey-born star has reached the third round at SW19 and she was delighted with her display.

Romanian Irina Begu failed to make it to the second round after she was beaten by 27th seed Ana Konjuh after the Croatian took the third set to win 7-6 (3) 2-6 6-3. I just am happy with that. 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. I really respect how hard she works and how focused she is.I look forward to playing her. "I obviously know how she plays, she is a great player and was expecting and was prepared for the best".

"I come in with a different game plan because everybody's a different player", she said.

Then with a grin, she added: "And I'm going to watch Love Island". "But to do with myself, I'll keep everything the same, my routine, what I'm going to eat, sleep".
