USO R2: Laura Robson ends Kim Clijsters career with a 7-6 7-6 win

My heart was in my mouth throughout the whole of that 2nd set.

OMG Laura I am so proud and so happy. Laura played so f**king well. She held her nerve (even after that smash at 5-5 30-30 in the 2nd set and the 2 MPs at 6-5 ) and this is such a well deserved win. Okay, I'm crying

It's fitting that Kim went out to a young star. She's had such an amazing singles career and I wish her all the best in the rest of her life.

I CANNOT WAIT to see a highlights reel- this was such a great match.
