First Brit woman to win WTA Tour Watson says Games' snub made her 'stronger'

London, Mon, 22 Oct 2012 ANI

London, Oct 22(ANI): Heather Watson, who became the first British woman to win a WTA Tour with her victory at the Japan Open, has said not getting selected for the London Olympics was a big setback for her, but added that it made her stronger.

Murray overlooked Watson in favour of Laura Robson in the mixed doubles at London Games 2012, and the couple went on to win silver, but Watson insists she was not bitter.

Watson claimed it made her more determined, culminating in her winning the Japan Open this month.

"I wanted to play. It was the Olympics. I think anyone in my position would have wanted that opportunity. But it was his decision. It's fine," the Sun quoted Watson, as saying.

"They ended up with a silver medal. That's brilliant. It has made me stronger," she added.

Watson climbed into the world's top 50 for the first time after her triumph in Osaka - two places above Robson in 50th spot. (ANI)
