Maybe she enters those 125k Challengers in Taiwan and India.

That's a big crowd for such a small court

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I think she'll end her season after Osaka. Considering the list there, another deep run is possible.

There may be an outside shot at her playing Barnstaple to end her season but I doubt it.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She must have played more matches in the last couple of months than she's even done before, so there is no point in overdoing it by playing too many tournaments too soon. So I kind of hope for her sake she will finish the season early and start building up for next year.

Next year could be pretty amazing...

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Hope laura can win tomorrow, i'm a bit worried since she's up against teh person who beat the 15th seed. Sorry for voting against her in the suicide contest, it's only so I get a bit of consolation if she loses.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

bear in mind her opponent did beat the world no 15 in the first round, laura didn't do that badly.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

It's really not that bad a loss. She's a good player on her day, and had just come off a very good win.

On to Osaka

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

More disappointed overall that Watson couldn't get a bit further.Robson has had a good spell but she has a way to go if we're realistic.Certainly has the game to be topb10

On a sidenote, I believe Laura will achieve her first WTA Tour seeding next week at Osaka

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Some quotes from Robbo in this agency copy.
Quote:
"I just wasn't consistent enough in the rallies and a lot of the time I tried to go for the wins too early," Robson told AFP.

"It was just far too inconsistent today."

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Hsieh Su-Wei wrote an article for chinadaily. Here's an excerpt:
Quote:
I was very surprised that Laura Robson (the runner-up in Guangzhou) defeated Li Na in the US Open. No offense, but I was like "oh, are you kidding me? How did that happen?"

I was really shocked, but I have to admit (Robson) is a genius. All the left-handers are geniuses. She improved her serve a lot and is going to be a tough opponent very soon.
