After losing to Alla Kudryavtseva, 6-4, 6-3, in Birmingham, Heather Watson calls for the introduction of the Hawk-Eye line calling system at the tournament. Watson was upset about an over-rule in the second set.

“I thought that was an awful over-rule but we need challenges here,” she told reporters. “I guess it happens and there’s not a lot you can do about it. I thought I was getting back into it, had a bit of rhythm and it just got taken away. But still I had lost the first set and you don’t know how things would have gone after that. They have Hawk-Eye in tournaments of this level around the world.”
