• Watson holds nerve to beat Zanevska in straight sets
• Laura Robson admits to being ‘overwhelmed’ in defeat
Heather Watson put a nightmare year behind her as she progressed to the second round with a 6-1, 7-6 (5) victory against the Belgian Maryna Zanevska.
Watson won the mixed doubles title last year but the British No2 was forced to take a wild-card entry for this year’s tournament after 12 months in which her ranking dropped from 55 to 102 in the world.
