Azarenka battles into the last 16 at Wimbledon

Since slipping out of the top 100 in March, however, she has enjoyed a resurgence in form which means she will face Victoria Azarenka in high spirits on Centre Court today.

"I just feel that it's sometimes an unfair comment because we see a lot of players - I'm not going to name who - having conversations with their boxes", added the Belarussian who is on a comeback trail after giving birth to her son Leo last December.

"Starts are very important, but I'm really happy with the second set because she raised her level", said Watson.

"Definitely these are the matches that you're looking for, trying to find a way when not everything goes great so I was very happy that I was able to stay tough and find other ways to win".

When Azarenka broke for 4-3 in the deciding set, following an 11-minute game which featured six deuces and five game points for her opponent, Watson's slumped body language seemed to suggest it was game over and her spirit was broken. Nonetheless, the Brit pulled even in the next game, before the Belarusian held on for victory with a second straight break, and dug out of 15-40 in the final game to dash British hopes. If that was coaching, I guess I missed it. But the wheels came off the world No.102's wagon as Azarenka made it a set-all. "I still feel you should figure it out yourself". And with a set advantage Watson looked like the player who scared the life out of Serena Williams in 2015.

But there was more drama to come when Watson, who had considered using up her last challenge earlier in the set before opting against it, correctly challenged a baseline call to bring up break point, which she duly dispatched to level again.

There were suggestions by Kim Clijsterss, the BBC commentator and former Grand Slam champion, that Azarenka was being coached. No, because I had no idea it was going on.

When she did finally launch into her serve, the muted applause that greeted the end of the point confirmed that Azarenka stood only a game away from making the second week of the grasscourt major for the fifth time.

"It was a big adventure for us as a family and I would not have changed anything". I think it's better if we figure it out ourselves, plus the men don't have it.
