USO QR2: Robson def. Townsend 6-3,, 4-6, 7-6(7-0)

Taylor did serve for the match at 5-3 but dropped 3 straight games, she broke back but played an awful tiebreaker

Not happy with that scoreline. I hope Townsend played like a superstar, otherwise that is just not good enough from Laura.

So she choked. Hope she does not make this a habit

Could she still enter the Junior draw?

Well it was too close for comfort but I really admire Laura's fighting spirit from 2-5 down.

Laura Robson

Laura should be winning that match far more comfortably. I hope Townsend is some sort of Phenom. I read she played well. So good luck to her in the future.

LOL.

Yeah, choking/getting out-ballsed by Laura Robson is kinda awful but a great effort from her otherwise. Hopefully a big name for the future.

Great.

She will have another chance with Laura there, or in the future.
At 15, she has plenty of room to improve
