Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Not on Ashe? THE FUCK?

Hewitt/Ferrer will be a slug fest too! She could be on late!


I've been thinking more about the match, I wouldn't be surprised if Sam gets of to an early head start, before Laura gets used to the TS. Remember what happened against Clijsters? She was struggling with how quickly the ball was coming through the court to start with.

Having said that, by the end, vs. Kim & Na, she had SO much time on the ball, I'm hopeful she will be able to adjust. Footwork will be absolutely KEY though, and that's not always her strongest point!



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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

yes, I expect a slow start as well, but on the other side, Laura's footwork and movement have improved rapidly recently.. we'll see, she can only surprise

In case there's someone who hasn't seen it, BBC article.

Laura Robson credits coach for US Open winning streak

Random snippet.

Yeah I saw that. They've deleted it now. No excuse at this point for getting her name wrong.

The message I got from BlueTrees...

After years of trolling, I'm glad he had the decency to send this, Laura's fanbase remains strong

Laura Robson

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah, BlueTrees is a pretty OK guy once you get past the disliking Robson stage. He actually said to me that he admits that Robson is a better player than most of his favourites, but the more vocal fans and the hype she's gotten over the years annoy him. Which is fair in my book. I certainly find extremely vocal fans of anyone annoying. Which is why Spice is on my ignore list.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I agree with you but it's annoying for those fans who have supported her since she came to prominence, we were always going to take to heart anything he said, he should have directed his trolling towards the people that over-hyped her or whatever not Laura herself

Laura Robson

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Bad news from Nick's picks. I usually don't notice these until after they've happened, but I was looking out for this one. Let's start with the context.

http://blog.imgacademies.com/2012/08...f-the-us-open/
Nick’s Pick – This will be a great match. Kim takes this one.

http://blog.imgacademies.com/2012/08...us-open-day-5/
Nick’s Pick- Li Na will not miss; Laura must gamble and go for winners. This match goes to Li Na

http://blog.imgacademies.com/2012/09...t-the-us-open/
Edge to Stosur but I look for another victory from Robson.

Whatever that means, but it's not as unequivocal as the first two. Still, we're not superstitious in these parts, are we?

Long wait, I am however watching Andy right now so I'm fine with waiting.

Stosur won't show up, it's Laura's match for the taking.
