USO R3: Robson becomes the 1st British woman in GS R4 since 1998! def. Li 6-4 6-7 6-2

I have no words. So incredibly happy and proud of Laura

Laura didn't let anything put her off- even the ridiculous decision from the umpire to replay a point which Laura had CLEARLY won and would've put her a break up in the 3rd. Laura has shown so much maturity this week and I can't describe how happy I am. I can remember watching her in a junior event at Eastbourne, destroying everyone at just 14. I don't know what Zejlko Krajan has done with her but her serve has gotten SO much more consistent in just a few weeks. And those returns I am so f**king proud of Laura, she's proven she can beat the worlds best.

GO LAURA- the first British Woman to reach the 4th Round at a Slam since Sam Smith in 1998

And everyone was bitching about how unfair this draw was for Kim and Na.

Laura was superb though. I was expecting her to fade in the 3rd set.

Laura!

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

The star is born!

I'm so sad because Clijsters two days ago, that I was blind about level of game which Laura shows. Sadly hers draw is so tough that she must once again to play against big name before QF (vs defending champion Stosur).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
