Hewitt Will Play Kooyong

Watson Is Ranked 50 And Shooting Higher

Heather Watson, Britain’s first winner on the WTA for 24 years, insists 2013 will see her add more titles to that she won at the HP Japan Open on Sunday.

“I definitely believe in myself,” said Watson, who this week stands in 50th position on the WTA rankings. “I wouldn't be in the game if I didn't. I have the mental toughness and the capability.”


Paes To Play With And Coach Stepanek

India’s Leander Paes is solidly in his double partner Radek Stepanek corner. So much so that not only has the 39-year-old committed to playing with the Czech in 2013, but also offering to help him with his singles career.
