Heather Watson has reversed course and decided she will not take a break from tennis due to burnout.

The 20-year-old Briton, who said after her first-round loss in Miami that she was burnt out and planned to take a break, told the BBC that she was upset and not thinking straight when she made those comments.

“I'm going to carry on with my schedule," Watson said. "I have Charleston next week and then the Fed Cup after that, so everything is going to stay the same. After a match, losing a close one, I was really disappointed and upset and wasn't thinking properly about what I was saying."
