Heather Watson vowed to ‘keep on going’ as her Wimbledon Championship singles venture came to an end on Wednesday.

The Briton fell to a 7-5, 6-1 second round defeat to Estonian Anett Kontaveit despite a positive start to the first set on Court One.

Watson said she will take the positives from her exit insisting she was a better player than she showcased.

“I played a lot better than I have been,” the 27-year-old who’d lost her previous three first round matches said.

“I think I haven’t played enough matches at this level, and it showed in the important moments today.”

Buoyed by the victory over Caty McNally in the opening round, Watson started the tie with a break of serve in an opening set that saw a host of chances go begging by the British No.2.

“I felt I had so many chances, but wasn’t able to play aggressive tennis and get there.

“I’m disappointed I wasn’t able to take them.

“I thought I was too defensive, I found myself too far back behind the baseline and let her dictate the play.

“But credit to Anett, she played well, stayed strong in those moments.

“That’s why she’s a top-20 player.”

Surrey Comet:

Watson’s 2019 Wimbledon hasn’t finished however as she’s set to compete in the doubles with Mandy Minella and in the much-talked about Mixed Doubles now that Andy Murray and Serena Williams confirmed their participation in the event.

“It’s brilliant!” Watson continued.

“It’s great that he’s playing in general.

“That’s so positive for the game, it’ll be so exciting to watch him play with Serena.”
