Well Stosur is the defending champion, so her playing well should be expected. But the fact that Robson's her opponent has got to have thrown her for a loop both because she'd have been mentally preparing for Na or Kim and because Robson's turned into quite the giant killer.
Just can't get over that unreal forehand at 5-5 to set up the MP, it just looks like it's going out all the way up to the last moment, what a shot in that situation, one of the shots of the tournament so far.
She said that Na was defeated in R1 in the last 2 USO, and this time she got to R3, they asked if there're any changes, especially with the new coach.
Na replied why they always have to ask the sharp questions (well sharp might not be the best word) and they could see the changes on court.
The journalist went on to say that she watched Na's performance in RG this year in person, and felt that she could control herself better now and what made the difference.
Na replied that she felt strange that neither controling herself or not was right, felt like that everything she did was wrong (in the eyes of the press).
Another vote against a subforum for now. Anne gets far fewer posts than Bally, despite a similar career, because she's hidden away in a subforum.
If Laura gets so big that posts about her swamp the other British women, then it would be time, but she's not at that level yet. Even if there were two threads for her - one for media and pics and another for discussing her matches, it would still be easy to handle in the main Brit forum.
Just to go back to this discussion, Robson's got more posts in her threads than Bally and Anne combined (just counting the Anne subforum), and only about 400 (the actual figure is 416 after this post) figure is shy of having more than Bally, Anne and Heather combined. Given how Laura already gets a disproportionate share of the traffic (her old thread has garnered over four times the number of views than Bally's has, and more than every other thread in this section combined) that gap isn't going to increase until this thread has about 30 more pages. Which should only take a few months.
