Wimbledon: British girl Heather Watson almost knocks out World number 1 Serena Williams

Even though the match was one of her first few on the centre court, British tennis star Heather Watson almost knocked out five-times champion Serena Williams in a match that has stunned Wimbledon.
In a battle of David versus Goliath, relative unknown Miss Watson, 23, pushed her American opponent, 33, to her limit.

But, proving why she's the world number one, Williams snatched the victory after an intensely fought game.
Miss Watson, from Guernsey, has already won a minimum of £77,000 in prize money in this year's tournament, bringing her total career winnings to just under £1million. 
While it is a bank balance most women in their early 20s could only dream of, it is just a fraction of the £44million Serena Williams has won in her 20 years since turning pro.
In a game fans will be talking about for years, the 20 grand-slam champion pushed back with everything she had to beat Watson 6-2, 4-6, 7-5.
Watching this game is exhilarating!
