Canadian TV carried the whole pre-final press conference live to air. The transcript is here http://www.asapsports.com/show_interview.php?id=100691. The Canadian rights holder had complete video archives of all Genie's press during the tournament. The exception was the R3 presser and this one where the stream that was posted cuts off right after the question on why she admires Oprah Winfrey.

I'd say her tone was more or less as the Mail described, cold and detached. When she was asked about Laura being at Saviano the day she went to Florida last November, I thought she was cold and maybe even seething.

I think we'll have to wait until Laura sets the record wrong in her autobiography to find out anything of more substance.
Saviano's statement is nuanced isn't it. That statement really only says he considers it a problem between the two girls and that he has to abide by the outcome.

It could also leave a scenario where Laura asked him to coach her, and he told her he was contractually obligated to work exclusively on the road and that she'd have ask Genie. Technically nothing to do with him as its a contractual issue.

Saviano's daughter was in the box during the Wimbledon matches (and with Laura later in the day). Genie had dinner with the Ren sisters before the tournament and played doubles with Heather. All still friendly with Laura. Leads me to believe me what broke their relationship was narrow and related directly to career rather than something that involves a wider circle.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Just to give an overview how it looks these days when it comes to her ranking (Spoiler: Not great.). She'll basically have to start from scratch.

As she has a PR she'll get into the Aussie Open and she's guaranteed a WC for Wimbledon, so the big goals for 2015 will be to get into the main draws of the other 2 slams.

The 3 "/" tournaments are free spots in her ranking, i.e. she hasn't played a tournament that could count towards her ranking, but the zero pointers from Indian Wells to Wimbledon will stay in her ranking until they come off.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

A ranking overview isn't really needed now, as it's evitable she was going to lose points anyway.

I'd prefer her to be hitting a tennis ball pain free(as she would) rather than worry about rankings, as that comes when you start playing tournaments again.

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-



I feel so bad for all three of them It must be heartbreaking. I remember Murray saying something similar when he was forced to skip RG last year.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

I can't wait to see her healthy and on court again. She must be so hungry after this long out.

To make matters worse, the thoughtful folk at the USTA e-mailed Laura the list of available practice courts and time slots.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Going by her latest Instagram pic, I'm assuming she's been cleared to start hitting with sponge balls. Baby steps...

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Any word whether she plans to play some ITF over the winter or will she only start at the beginning of the regular season 2015? Might not be the worst idea to get some matches under her belt without the spotlight on her if her health allows it.

Most recent interview http://www1.skysports.com/tennis/new...-wrist-surgery

Looks like she will try to play a bit before the end of the year
