Unfortunately the “tennis gods” were not favourable to Heather in the draw.
Her first opponent is none other than a previous title holder (2006) and a former world number one, Miss Maria Sharapova of Russia, who is seeded 3.
Nevertheless, Heather can gain more experience from this draw and she can be assured of playing on centre court at Flushing Meadows, New York.
If this is a night match, then the crowds will be there. Yes, a big learning experience.
