Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Robson rise a real surprise
By Eurosport | Simon Reed
http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/...160645961.html

Reed asks the same question as many of us here.

Quote:
I'm still astonished at Laura Robson's recent progress, I have to say. She's completely jumped out of the compartment I had her in. It's still difficult for me to rationalise what she's become and why she's become it.
Although he doesn't really have any answers.

Why do you ask?
I just asked, because many other Players switch their racket if they need. Kvitova, Safarova, Sharapova, Petkovic,....... So i thougt someone has seen Laura too. :-)

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura's Q-Draw is out.

ROBSON, Laura (4)
MUGURUZA, Garbine
COHEN, Julia
LARSSON, Johanna (16)

Not bad at all for her. Hopefully she can avoid running up against a highly seeded person in the opening rounds and have a good run here too.

Good win, Mugurza could have been dangerous!

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Good Larsson should be easier. But these results in Asia are so random sometimes

Good start.
I don't think Larsson is going to be any tougher.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Larsson's a bit hit or miss.Let's hope she misses.Another good tournament would put Laura in the top 50 and maybe the Kremlin cup.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Well laura had a shaky start but she won in the end and that's what matters, stop focussing on the negatives and be happy that she totally dominated in the last two sets.
