I think Heather's career will be the most consistent however Laura will get the odd big win here and there and the British media will prioritize her over Heather. I mean they already do.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

She's definitely the most entertaining Brit to watch (not that she has much competition). Very lovely strokes!

Yes I have a feeling about this too... I prefer Heather myself anyway.

But I heard next year they will be doing an article about Laura saying hows she going to win wimbledon... I joke, she is lovely in interviews though is laura and speaks well.

Watson's game looks hopelessly useless to achieve anything big.

Things will get really interesting if Laura beats Na Li in R3.

What on earth has Sloane Stevens got to do with this? She's A) not British (and thus isn't in the running for queen of British Tennis) and B) won't play Robson in the singles of this tournament unless both make it to the final, which neither are likely to.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

I'm glad it was Laura who finished Kim's career. I mean, big old champions lose to young stars - to pass the torch, not to other old champions, like Na Li or Stosur (Kim couldn't beat them both here, really). Plus, I hope it gives plenty of motivation to Laura.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

It's a sensational win and I'm sure we are witnessing the emergence of an outstanding player who will dominate women's tennis for years to come! She is still so young and if she keeps improving soon there will be nobody to stop her. Li Na should not pose a major threat now, Heather could have knocked her out with a little bit of luck.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Just 'cause she defeated Clijsters in her farewell tournament?
Anyone remembers Becker from Germany who defeated Agassi in USO 2006?

To be fair though, Robson is the youngest player in the top 100, so even before this tournament started, people knew she had potential. I'm not saying that beating Clijsters in her farewell tournament means she's going to suddenly start winning titles left and right, but I'm confident that she's well on her way to the top 50 and even top 30. After that I have no clue.

Laura Robson
