Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Well she's matched her points tally from last year so will remain the 3rd ranked Brit unless she beats Li.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Well obviously it was a great win for her but how is she the best teenager when Stephens and Babos are both ranked higher?

This is why I don't want Laura to do well. Right now I actually like her.

Meh, I'm not interested in how many she wins. The one thing I want to know is will she win her first before Andy Murray?

No.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

^ Well that's kinda obvious (Andy is likely to win his first one as early as next week... whereas her royal hypeness might have to wait a little bit longer

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Up until the Olympics my stance was "Andy Murray hasn't been knocked out before the semis in over a year. If he was going to win a slam, he already would have. Therefore he's not going to, and thus saying Robson/Watson will win one before him is a safe bet". I changed that opinion when he won the gold medal by beating 2/3 of the players ranked above him.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Atleast Robson has an accomplishment for the record book: The last player to beat Kim in Singles!

It's like a passing of the Torch. Let's see if she can live up to it over her career, regardless of LiNa spanking her in the next round.
