Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson Support Thread II

Let's hope Raeson win tomorrow - especially as it has prevented Laura playing in Birmingham.

They weren't very good quality

Видеотрансляция игр this is a stream for Laura's doubles match!! Click ok when the box flashes up when you arrive at the website, then scroll down the right hand side until you see tennis, and then you'll see Adamthingy/Sanders vs Robson/Rae in a box, above a few other matches. Click the box that says Robson/Rae and you'll get the video going!

Re: Return Winner's Tale Vol.2: The Laura Robson support thread.

This is going to be tough.. Adamscak has a really big serve. Storm's serve is not big but it's quite tricky, she puts a lot of spin on it.

Re: Return Winner's Tale Vol.2: The Laura Robson support thread.

Aw Raeson lost 4-6 6-4 4-10.

Jocelyn was slightly too ambitious at the net today, not as sharp as yesterday. Many long balls called out. They both seemed to have lost focus during that tiebreaker.

Hopefully this little run gives Laura some confidence though. The search for that WTA title continues.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: Return Winner's Tale Vol.2: The Laura Robson support thread.

Lost the final.. 6-4, 4-6, 10-4..

They both get so nervous in finals... there were some horrific misses today... Storm Sanders served very well though and both of them were good at the net

I have noticed Laura and Joss are not playing doubles in Birmingham, which is good because Laura needs to make sure she is available to play singles in Eastbourne, which I am guess she would need a WC to get into the qualifying draw?
