Heather Watson has revealed that she is inspired by the recent success of fellow Brits Andy Murray and Laura Robson at Wimbledon.

Murray became the first British man to win the tournament in 77 years, while Robson made an impressive run to the fourth round.

Meanwhile, Watson was beaten in her opening match by American Madison Keys.

"[Robson] did brilliantly," Sky Sports News quotes her as saying. "She had a very tough first round to get through and I think once she got through that it gave her confidence to carry on.

"It inspires me, and what Andy's doing, and also my loss. I'm still not over it. For Wimbledon it takes a lot longer."

Watson returns to action at the Citi Open in Washington at the end of the month.
