Mexican Open: Heather Watson reaches WTA final in Acapulco .

Britain's Heather Watson is one win away from her first WTA title in almost four years after beating China's Wang Xiyu to reach the Mexican Open final.


Watson, 27, won 6-4 7-6 (8-6) against the 18-year-old in the semi-final.

The British number two, who has not won a title since the Monterrey Open in March 2016, will play in her fifth tour-level final on Saturday.

She will face Canada’s Leylah Fernandez after she beat Mexican wildcard Renata Zarazua.

Watson, who is first Briton to reach the Acapulco final, has climbed up to 69th in the world after being ranked outside of the top 100 at the start of the year.

Victory in the final would move her into the top 50 for the first time since June 2016.

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  2. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But think of if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts
    more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly be one of
    the most beneficial in its field. Awesome blog!

  3. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  4. This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!
