Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

what worries me the most is that Evert just gave her the kiss of death by saying she is a top 20 player, poor Makarova cannot win anything anymore since Chris said she is a future Slam champion in Australia...

Unless Robson's going to be ranked around #40 after the US Open the no this isn't correct

Stephens is 10 months older and was ranked around #92 in October 2011. This is pretty much exactly where Laura will be if she loses to Li Na. Stephens reached the 3R of the US Open last year when she was younger than Laura. So no she's not ahead of Sloane in terms of development at all. Obviously they're both talented players but please don't make up facts which are't true

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

So is she a princess or a queen?

EDIT: Nevermind

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Amazing win from Laura! I really think she doesn't realize how amazing she can be. It seems her new coach is really helping her with getting that self belief. I hope she can stretch Li Na to three sets in the next round. I just hope she isn't too tired

Excuse me?..

I've been a fan of Laura since she won the juniors in 2008, so how am i jumping on a bandwagon? I knew she had a lot of potential and her match against Kim proved that. She just needs to be more consistent.

What's your problem?
