I have always been a big fan of Wilson tennis bags. Here is a quick video review of the Molded 9 pack bag.

Here it is. I know nearly everyone has seen it, but there must be someone out there who hasn’t. Thug life version f Kim Sears swearing like a trooper.

Im guessing Kim and Tomas Berdych aren’t friends.

Even the ball kid knows how important the water bottles are for Rafael Nadal.

Heather Watson British number 1 has made a great start to the 2015 season.  After partnering Andy Murray in the Hopman Cup, she went over to Tasmania and took part in the Hobart tournament.  She had already spoken highly of Murray, and that he gave her advise too about not getting annoyed on court, and just getting on with it if something went against you etc.

Her time with Murray at the Hopman Cup certainly seems to have sparked something, as does her off season training.  She progressed through the draw at Hobart without dropping a set in the earlier rounds of the singles (she was also in the doubles too).

Taking out higher seeds of Sloane Stephens, Roberta Vinci and Alison Riske (Heather wasn’t seeded here) all in straight sets, even mounting a come back from 2-5 down against Vinci in the first set and taking the match in straight sets.

After reaching both the semi finals of the singles and the doubles, Heather had to play both matches the same day to try and end up in the finals.  She won the semi final easily against Alison Riske (although she had to fight the rain as well as her opponent, 6 rain delays)  to be in her 2nd WTA singles final, she wasn’t so lucky in the doubles and lost in straight sets.

Onto the singles final, on a very windy day Heather faced American Madison Brengle, who had come through qualifying and had also taken out a lot of seeded players along the way.  This was not going to be a walk in the park for Heather.  It proved to be so as they exchanged breaks until 3-3.  At this point Heather stepped things up a gear and won the next 3 games to take the first set 6-3.  The second set was a little closer as both held their nerves and the score was 4-4.  Heather then broke serve an would serve for it at 5-4.  Although a little windy still, she held on and won the last game to 30, to take the trophy – only her 2nd on the WTA tour, but she certainly looks on form right now – and having fully recovered from Glandular fever that effected her towards the end of 2012 and through 2013.
