Would love to see her play Kim especially now as it's Kim's farewell.

If she's to win R1, she has a chance against Clijsters

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura plays Samantha Crawford in the first round. It's a rare occurence for her to face someone younger than her, especially in such a big event so she may feel the pressure from that, but she should definitely win.

Laura Robson

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Apparently Laura has been practicing with Sharapova!

I guess Maria has respect for her after their matches & wants to hit with a lefty in anticipation of meeting Petra!



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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

It's interesting that they're doing it again. They were also doing it back during the Olympics, Laura posted a photo of it to her Instagram.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'm really happy that Maria seems to like Laura, I LOVE both and can't be happier with her practicing with her again. Laura can gain a lot by hitting with someone like Maria who hits it so hard. And Maria also gets to practice returning lefty serve so it's a win win

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Seems like there're lots of Laura-Masha fans here
I won't say I'm a Masha fan but I do like her, so pretty happy about that too

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura's match today is on Court 4 so unfortunately no stream.
She'll also play doubles with Peer. First match vs Lisicki/Peng.

And happy for the practice with Maria as I'm a fan of both.
I hope Laura benefits from it and Maria probably needs practice against leftys as she's playing one first round and she has the potential meeting with Kvitova. I'm not surprised that Maria has respect for Laura's game after their matches.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Well. that match sure was something. Shouldn't have gone to a second set tiebreak really. Laura Fumbled 4 break points and basically gifted Crawford a break. But she won, and that's the important thing.
