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.
Give us more clue: QF in singles or doubles , what slam ?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Sorry. I'm not at all good at this. I didn't want to make it hard, more wanted to avoid writing down the name. (Since there's no evidence to back it up, and who knows, I may even have dreamt it.)

The slam was last year, and the QF was where X was defeated.

According to the collective description Judy Murray coined, the brothers are (very nearly) a pair of sweeties.

And one more. In these terms, Laura herself is a GS quarter finalist.

Yeah, him.

X was a clue, actually, though entirely inadvertant.

Now, do I try harder to find the original post? The problem is (and this informs my nym) that I've fallen out with some forums, and I refuse to revisit them...

I regret the post anyway, and if I'd realised the images it would conjure up in some minds, I'd... Eww

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Haha on the random gossip side of things, Harry Styles tweets Laura today wishing her good luck, she then get's a load of hate from crazy ass 1D fans and her followers shoot up by like at least several 1000, all crazy 1Ders keeping an eye on things?

Well that gives her last tweet some context then! I was wondering what she was on about

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Perhaps that's a cover

Well Harry and Laura do follow each other, and she's now gained between 5,000-10,000 followers since Harry's tweet Slowly catching Vika.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura wouldn't touch that with a barge pole!

Far too sensible!

Yes, Laura knows that it's a good idea to keep that sort of thing private.

Yep, she's far too sensible. Harry Styles is a walking STD... he's cute but he gives "manwhore" a new meaning. Liam on the other hand is the complete opposite.

It's so funny how these silly 1D fans are following Laura and they probably don't know who she is or what she does.

Ps- This thread is turning into an off topic thread.

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