When is Laura Robson playing again?

How do you find out upcoming schedules for junior players?
Why did she say at Wimbledon she was unable to play US Open juniors?
Thanks in advance for any news.

Re: When is Laura Robson playing again?

Well, she's under the age-rule and if she wants to play the Australian Open with their warm-up tournaments, she can't play the US Open this year.

Laura Robson played a junior tournament in Hoorn (The Netherlands) last week and lost to Nathalie Rooks (6-3 6-0) in the first round. This week she is playing a tournament in Leiden (The Netherlands).

I don't know all these rules. I don't understand why she can't play the US Open juniors and then the Aus Open juniors? I don't understand why someone can't play all the junior tournaments. Is there an age rule or total number of tournaments rule for the juniors too?

I'm not 100% sure but probably because it's just a local tournament. You can find some information on this site: http://www.toernooi.nl/sport/matches...456&d=20080709

fnc is right. These are local tournaments in The Netherlands (3 and 4 stars), no ITF tournaments. She plays for money though, the winner in these tournaments usually gets something like € 1000,-. Don't know why she chooses to play these, maybe in preparation for the European Championship/Summer Cup which is played on clay as well. And she has a Dutch coach. That's all I know.

Oh Geez No offense to Nathalie Rooks but the pressure has either already started for Laura or she totally tanked that match from fatigue. I don't think she has lost an opening match in any junior events since she first started playing tournaments.

She is only 15. I doubt she will play any WTA events this year. Possibly one or two 10k ITFs. She will probably make her WTA debut in the UK next year in one of the warm up tournaments for Wimbledon for which she will almost certainly receive a main draw WC.
