AO Girls Final:Karolina Pliskova d. Laura Robson 6-1 7-6(5)

Karolina served for match at 5-4 in 2nd set

Laura was 4-1 up in TB and lost on a DF (did 2 DF's in TB)
really disappointing ending, Laura was pretty bad out there

congrats Karolina pretty impressive serving
quite like her play

Good luck to my favs

Laura

Played so bad. And DF on MP. laaaamee.

But this Karolina chick has got skills. From the stats, she sounds like a force to be reckoned with.

A new champion is born. Karolina Pliskova won 2010 Australian Open junior title. Her twin sister Krystina was defeated by Laura Robson at the semifinal.

Laura finished Runner-up twice in a row

Laura I watched the tiebreaker and Laura started off well but her returning wasn't so great. Pliskova has a great serve and backhand but her forehand seemed average.

Laura Robson

Pliskova's twin seem to be really promising judgning by those results! Too bad for Laura ..but Karolina is already pretty much in the pro circuit right now, so I don't know what she was really doing there, just getting some more fame I guess which is good!

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Laura must have been aced like 10 times throughout the match wide on the Ad side, she just never adjusted. Oh well, another good experience for Laura, overall looking back I'm sure she'll be happy with the entire Aussie summer season.

13 aces against her

Laura is a good player, but she's too one dimensional right now. Her serve and forehand, supposedly her weapons, broke down when it mattered most.

And the girl is slow. But there's definitely potential there.

Congratulations to Karo. She can be such a great and fun player to watch.

For Laura, glad she was able to make it close at the end.
