Heather Watson When Serena Was Her Idol
Today Heather Watson will walk out on court to face world number one and one of the greatest players of all time. This journey started around 10 years ago when, at the age of 11, Heather left her home in Guernsey to swap the relaxed lifestyle and sandy beaches for the dedicated training regime at the Nick Bollettieri tennis academy in Florida.
We followed her on those first steps recording her thoughts on leaving her island home and in this short film she talks about how she wants to be like her hero Serena Williams. Today she will try and beat her.
Good Luck, Heather!
