Her hash tag was, #whendidigetsoemo


Poor Laura. Get that wrist healed up and come back.

She's talking about her injury right? Because that quote in its original context is really, I mean REALLY emo.

Hah! Now I have to find out what the original context was. I stopped as soon as I found it, so this may not be the best translation, but who am I to judge, I have no poetry in my soul. And I lost long ago most of the little Latin I once had.

http://www.sacred-texts.com/cla/ovid/lboo/lboo53.htm

I guess the line is given here rather freely as Fight on, my soul, and faint not. It is a wrench, indeed, but some day you'll be glad you bore this present pain.

It's unusual for Laura to send out a distress signal, let alone reveal her classical education. She's seemingly been immersing herself in Ovid's Amores. 'Embittered' has correctly identified the line:

Perfer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim

What is Laura alluding to? An injured wrist or an injured heart?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The poem is about a guy who's partner is cheating on him. I had no idea the Romans had this type of artist. I always thought they fed the emos to the lions at the Circus Maximus but here we are quoting Ovid.



Quando ego non fixus lateri patienter adhaesi,
ipse tuus custos, ipse vir, ipse comes?
scilicet et populo per me comitata placebas;
causa fuit multis noster amoris amor.
turpia quid referam vanae mendacia linguae
et periuratos in mea damna deos?
quid iuvenum tacitos inter convivia nutus
verbaque conpositis dissimulata notis?
dicta erat aegra mihi--praeceps amensque cucurri;
veni, et rivali non erat aegra meo!



In honour of Laura's recent rapping (and because I don't do emo music) I'll render this section with a more modern sensibility.

Girl when'd I eva do you wrong?
Wasn't I yo' bro', yo' man, yo' watcha?
You wa'n't nothing 'fore our thing got goin'
Now cuz of me all the homies wan'be wit'ya
Ain't even gonna start 'bout yo' lying ways,
Cuz God only knows all you said to diss me.
Seen you make eyes at that boy these days,
You trashed the texts you sent but I can see.
When your bestie covers and says you're sick
I came over justa catch you with that d*ck.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Given the origin of the quote, perhaps we're wrong to imagine it has anything to do with Laura's health, perhaps it's about Lollygate

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'm sure Laura's just as upset about that as Sabine was when Mike81 broke up with her.

So this happened

I have to say I'm kinda disappointed by some reactions on twitter. I feel like some people are fans of Laura only because she was friend with Genie

Don't be overdramatic, it's a non-issue on twitter. I don't think it's even been mentioned with the girls' @tags.

They'll both be fine. Their fans will be fine.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I really want Laura to win a title on her come back tournament.
I hope she's practicing her slide on clay coz her groundstroke is powerful enough to make damage on clay.

If Laura wins Marrakech, she can call herself a Princess...

You mean if she plays?

There's no guarantee she'll be back by then. Still waiting for news she's withdrawn.

She's given no hope she'll be ready to compete in two weeks time. I don't even think she's been properly hitting.

Let's stay pessimistic guys. That's what we do best in Laura's Lounge.

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

Where did Hadad head after Columbia's Davis Cup Tie? If they're not on flights to meet some common location, she's probably not seriously hitting balls yet.
