Heather Watson pulled no punches when assessing the state of British tennis after her first-round exit at the French Open.
Watson, the world No. 56 from Guernsey, was beaten in straight sets by France’s Fiona Ferro on Tuesday – a defeat that confirmed there would be no Brits in the second round of a Grand Slam for the first time since 2013.
Andy Murray, Johanna Konta, Dan Evans, Cameron Norrie and qualifier Liam Broady had already been knocked out in what was a painful tournament for the British contingent.
