Heather Watson, Britain’s no.1 female tennis player, reached the fourth round at Indian Wells, following a stunning straight set triumph over Agnieszka Radwanska in what is her biggest win of her career to date.
The 22-year-old expertly dismissed Radwanska, winning 6-4 6-4 in the third-round, and will take on Carla Suarez Navarro or Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova or the next round.
It was the first time that Watson had beaten opposition in the world top 10 – and the public have taken to Twitter to congratulate the rising star…
Big congrats to @HeatherWatson92 at Indian Wells, beating Radwanska in straight sets for first Top 10 win. First of many I’m sure.

A fantastic win for @HeatherWatson92 beating a Top 10er for the first time is HUGE. Hev’s serve & to a lesser extent forehand were weapons.
