A very good win for Roby!

Roby won the 75k in Dinan. She defeated Zuzana Ondraskova 75 75 in the final after beating Michaella Krajicek in the quarterfinals

Very well done Roby and good luck for the next tournaments

Actually #85 now and an automatic entry into RG

No acton since Dinan. Thought she'd appear at Fed Cup but not sure if she passed or didn't get an invite? Strange since she's unbeaten in Fed Cup play and is Italy's best doubles player. Hopefully she's just resting for Rome and not injured?

Also, does anyone think she'll get a main draw wild card? I would be very surprised and dismayed if she doesn't.

Tough going in doubles today. I trust Roby will shake it off and come out loaded for bear against Denisa.

Forza Roby!!!

Anna Lena Groenefeld is Roby's first round opponent. Difficult but far from impossible.

You can doooooo it!

A disappointing loss for sure but I'm very encouraged by the terrific clay season Roby is having and by her great effort today

No qualifying needed for Wimbledon and I trust for the US Open as well. Keep it going and win the doubles with Sandrine!

Allez!!!

Roberta lost too easily last week in Birmingham to Tammy 6-1,6-2.

but rebounded with an impressive 7-6(3),6-2 win over red hot Evgenia Linetskaya today.

She'll play Jill Craybas in the second round of qualifying tomorrow.

Forza Roberta!
