That's because she does lose almost every (singles) match she plays.

But she's favourite for her R1 match, surely?

She was favourite against Bouchard, but look how that turned out.

I swear to god, I am going to choke someone in the outfit thread. On what universe does Laura look out of shape?

Okay, my fashion sense is only marginally better than Jeremy Clarkson's, but I think if there was a competition to design a dress to be as unflattering to someone's waistline as possible, Stella McCartney would have a strong contender with that outfit. Hell, it even made Kirilenko look like she hadn't just stepped off a runway in Milan, and that takes some doing.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Really good 20-25 minute interview with Laura in the latest No Challenges Remaining podcast: http://nochallengesremaining.podbean...-laura-robson/ (from 00:43:48 onwards)

Was done during Charleston, really interesting to hear her talk about the media and winning junior Wimby and just generally on and off court. Not sure about her focus during matches seeing as she apparently notices everyone and hears everything!

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Apparently Laura's back injury isn't serious, but she won't play Birmingham unless she's 100% to ensure she's fit for Wimbledon. So good chance she may withdraw.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She's still on the entry list for Birmingham... but we'll see if there's a change.

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

I'm sure I saw a claim on some forum a while back that she was the gf of... no, if I say it, this'll be totally uninteresting, so, let's obfuscate a little and say a tennis player who has reached a Grand Slam quarter final, although his brother is a more famous tennis player.

Evidently not this forum, as a search of the subforum doesn't find him. Googling Laura and X together doesn't give anything worthwhile, either.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Not got the greatest ATP knowledge any other clues? Just kinda want to solve the puzzle, I'm sure there's no truth in the rumour Are we talking singles slam 1/4 here?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

David Lloyd made the French Open Men's Doubles QF.

Him & Patrick McEnroe are the only ones that fit the clues. Since Patrick is married with kids, I'm guessing David is the rumoured b/f. He's in his mid 60s though, so I'm not going to set any store by it.



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

But Jamie's been to a grand slam final, he won Wimbledon with JJ in the mixed so it can't be him, he had crossed my mind as well.
