Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura's decided to go to fly from Florida to California.



Yep, Stone Cold reacted the same way as me.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Is she going to Sloane's B'day party? Maybe she bought the tent.

Laura OUT from both Monterrey and Bogotá.
Still IN in Marrakech.

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

There's a real possibility that the season might be lost.

Flying to L.A. for no reason? I'm wondering if she's not getting a second opinion from a specialist.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The wrist injury is very serious, way more than she's letting on.

I don't really care about ranking points atm, the most important thing is being 100% ready to play again. Ranking comes and goes.

I just hope this injury won't be career threatening. If she's not back before May then that'll be worrying.

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I always expected her to pull out of both tbh. Playing one hardcourt event then onto the clay makes no sense, nor does traveling all the way to South America for just one event. If she pulls out of Marrakech, then I'll be worried for the rest of the season.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The good news is that she is not playing through it. Marrakech is a month away so we will see

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Worrying... seems like next year she's back on square one... the hope of winning first tournament this year is becoming bleaker and bleaker...

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

This excursion to the west coast says to me she 1) had to stop hitting again and that; 2) didn't want to be at Bollettieri with the tennis tour circus and media in nearby Miami because she probably has no definite answer on when she'd be back.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura's on the way to Dusseldorf... I'm confused.

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

I've given up trying to understand the logic of Laura's travels. All I can work out is that she's not even close to getting cleared to return.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah, I agree about the protected ranking maybe being needed, if/when she comes back. Because she won't be back anytime soon.

The injury is seriously bad. I sense four more months of inactivity, at the very least.

I agree, more than likely the only instruction is not to hit.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Pure speculation:

In Düsseldorf there's a (controversial) doctor doing a procedure called Regenokine dealing with chronic pain and arthritis that many athletes have undergone in the past. No idea if that could be relevant to her injury.
