Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She did it again.
What she's managed this week is already huge. Finally having a biig breakthrough. And with style.

As for Stosur, Laura obviously has a good chance if she plays like this.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She won't beat Sam but Vikapower starting to get on her back and needs to STFU.

BTW def 2011 AO and RG champions back to back is still a big deal

The key will be how well Laura handles Sam's serve and top spin (doubt she'll have faced anything like it before), if she can use her height, time her shots right, get on the return and rush Sam (like Masha does) she really has the game to cause the Aussie some major trouble!

Not seen her play yet, but it sounds like Sam's playing well. Have to say though, the pressure will really ramped up on her, we'll see if she can handle it!
It's not even Champion vs darling. It's Champion vs Giant killer.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Absolutely incredible.

Considering her two back to back wins, she certainly has a shot against Sam. She can throw in bad matches.
Wouldn't give her a shot against Vika atm though.

Another 120 for today, if it isn't added yet (actually, only after today is the tourney a net gain for her). But Hev's still 50 ahead.

If I were Laura I'd get on the practice court with one of the men & get them to hit TS serves & FHs over and over to try & get used to it!

I screwed up the calculation. Forgot to take off the points she was defending, and so had her gaining 280 points

Yeah, Laura moves up to 75 with these points. A few places behind Heather, but does overtake Anne.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Such composure from Laura in the 3rd set. Impressive.

She's had such a horrible draw compared to some others. Beaten two former slam champs, faces another one next round. Given what she's shown us so far I'd say she has a chance.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

OMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

I am even more shocked and unbelievably happy than Wednesday night. I never knew that after the horrible draw she got after Crawford that she would make R4. I am so happy for you Laura, those 4 years of hghs and lows and you knew you had it in you and you've proved us all right

So happy that we're all here to share it with you !! When Loz hits her first serve, there;s not much any player can do. Li was struggling so much with the pace and direction. Although I dont believe Li played her absolute best, she picked up her game end of second set and beginning of third so it was detrimental for Laura to stay focused and poised and she exceeded that !!!!! Great composure and fantastic attitude. Now go get Stosur

P.S Stosur will be a nightmare for Laura but once she gets used to the TS and kick, Laura should be able to cope pretty well

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

she keeps on bad talking her calling her over-hyped and saying someone needs to beat her ASAP. She should STFU and concentrate on her faves instead of her least faves. I really don't get that.

I really can't see her choosing to play Ningbo, even though she's on the AL
