"Enjoying it, which is the most important part".
Now ranked 102, Watson will climb back into double figures after a superb performance against the fast-rising Sevastova, who won the warm-up tournament in Majorca.
"I look forward to playing her", Watson said. "I feel like my tennis is just really improving at the moment".
Romanian Irina Begu failed to make it to the second round after she was beaten by 27th seed Ana Konjuh after the Croatian took the third set to win 7-6 (3) 2-6 6-3.
She did not put a foot wrong in a first set that lasted only 19 minutes, not making a single unforced error. "And, uhm, just to swing free, stay aggressive, and move my feet".
The Guernsey star won 6-0 6-4 in a little over an hour to equal her best ever run at the Championships. It's always going to change. She's a great player and I had to expect she'd raise her level and try something knew. "I was pleased with how I remained calm and just kept doing what I was doing". I was getting goosebumps after every point. "More relaxed than in my first match".
Azarenka is now back on the circuit after taking time off to have a baby and was too good for 15th seed Elena Vesnina. I think she played really well last week in Eastbourne. She successfully defended the US Open title 12 months later, adding the 2011 Australian Open title and rising to number one in the world rankings before halting her playing career.
She then rose to a career-high mark of 38 in January 2015 before slipping down again.
She said: "Personally, I can't speak for anybody else, but if my leg was broken I'd be crawling to the next ball". "But to do with myself, I'll keep everything the same, my routine, what I'm going to eat, sleep".
