Heather Watson is a professional British tennis player Guernsey. Born to her parents Ian Watson and Michelle Watson, she started playing tennis at the age of seven. It seems she was destined to be a tennis player.
The former No.1 British professional tennis player, Heather Watson, is all the rage right now, at least for the British fans. UK people had high hopes for the 29-year-old, but she was recently knocked out in the first round.
Heather was knocked out of Wimbledon in the first round, losing against Kristie Ahn. Watson talked with the ITV following the match, during which she said,
"I’m really disappointed with the match today. I felt like I had so many chances, I just didn’t convert any of them. Even in the third set, I didn’t return well, I made loads of unforced errors and I didn’t back myself in the big moments."
Well, it was certainly discomforting for the British fans to see their player lose against the American tennis player, but it seems, despite her losing the match, she won some overseas fans.
Call it a "Heather's charm," people have been miraculously curious about the Guernsey player's relationship. So, to answer all that, we are here. Let's find out if Heather Watson has a boyfriend.
