British tennis star Heather Watson has vowed never to date another player after two cross-court novels ended in a broken heart.

Exclusively focused on the magazine You, the British No 2 reflects last year after their & # 39; passionate and intense & # 39; two-year affair with the former friend and tennis pro Lloyd Glasspool.

When asked if she wanted to date another player, she emphatically said: & # 39; Damn it, no! It's just too heavy. I would never mix things with pleasure again. & # 39;

The 27-year-old says that the fact that Lloyd was also in the game took its toll with their busy schedules, meaning they had to be satisfied with & # 39; a lot of FaceTiming & # 39 ;.

British tennis star Heather Watson, 27, has vowed never to date a new tennis player again, and to say to You magazine: & # 39; it's just too heavy. I would never combine business with pleasure again & # 39;

She admits: & # 39; We blew hot and cold, we had a lot of arguments and I think we both put our career first. We haven't talked for a while. I had to remove it from my system. & # 39;

During a recent accidental meeting with her ex, & # 39; we continued as a house on fire, which was annoying, but we are now ready and we need to continue & # 39 ;.

She also spoke about the heartbreak at the end of her first serious relationship, which with junior tennis player in 2015 had become banker Phil Stephens.

& # 39; The breakup was so difficult that I didn't think I'd survive, & # 39; she said. & # 39; Something so painful happened that I had to put an end to it and it took me almost a year to get over him. I don't really want to go into it. & # 39;

Now single again, she recently went on a date with someone she met online, but discovered there was no spark. & # 39; I'm only interested if there is chemistry & she said.

But if that & # 39; real deal & # 39; flourishes, she is not going to combine playing with motherhood.

She said: & # 39; If I have a child, I want to give them everything, and it is very difficult to be a tennis player and a mother. & # 39;

But that is yet to come. For now, she says: & I want to go out, do my thing, party and play a great tennis & # 39 ;.

On a more sinister note, Heather, whose mother Michelle is from Papua New Guinea, spoke of receiving racist abuse and death threats on social media.

& # 39; I was named a monkey and said to go back to the zoo, & # 39; she said, & it hurts. It's just so disappointing and sad. It is usually when I lose and mostly from men who gamble to win. They choose my race. I have had a handful of death threats. & # 39;

But she says the sports governing body and the police take them seriously and adds: & # 39; Someone was arrested a few days ago for sending hateful messages.
