Result: Heather Watson loses at Miami Masters

Heather Watson loses during the first round of the Miami Masters to Ayumi Morita.

Great Britain's Heather Watson has exited the Miami Masters at the round one stage.

It appeared that the 20-year-old was bound for a routine victory earlier today when she claimed the first set against Japan's Ayumi Morita 6-1.

Then in the second set, Watson opened up a 4-1 advantage, which left her requiring just two more games to book her slot in the next round.

However, Morita responded by claiming the set 7-5 to force a decider, before going on to win that 6-4.

The defeat means that Watson has now lost in the opening round of the last two Masters 1000 tournaments.
