Good win.Shame she can't go to Japan and get all these juicy points.She'd eat a lot of the field for breakfast.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Oh my. Just exceeding expectation after expectation this last few weeks.

It may actually do her good to have the week of Tokyo off now considering how well she has done this week.

I'm 21, Laura is 18 and the text was written from her perspective (as she's accepting the challenge). Either way...

So so proud of Laura- hopefully she'll seal the title tomorrow but even if she doesn't, it's been an amazing week

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

So happy to see a straight sets win. One more step to British tennis greatness! 24 years since Sara Gomer won the WTA tournament at Aptos, California in July 1988. That's a long wait for a British winner. I hope she can do it.

British Eurosport 2 will be showing the match live at 8am tomorrow. I'm not normally a morning person on the weekends but I think I'll be getting up early for this one.

Being middle age, I know I'm in the minority on these forums. Alot of people are youngsters compared to me.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I think GB has ended a lot of long waits this year, mostly longer than my lifetime. I know it's strange for me to talk about these since I'm a Chinese that only started to watch in recent years... Still, happy to see all these happening
