You can't write Laura off completely. Clijsters didn't win as convincingly as I thought she would last night. Can see Laura taking a set off her.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Robson focuses on tennis
"It's a first," she said. "She definitely played like she had no pressure on her. It was an interesting match but I thought I played okay. She's taller than me so she felt older."

I don't know how they can do the OOP this early, but they have, and Laura is 3rd on AA: http://www.usopen.org/en_US/scores/s...schedule9.html

Laura has a chance out there. 'Embittered' if you have nothing nice to say then don't say it

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She has a shot, but Kim is the clear favourite.

Laura did well in winning a match she was supposed to win. All you can really ask of her at this stage in her career

You're new to the internet, aren't you? Kim is a better player than Laura, on her best surface and in her last tournament. There is maybe a 1% chance that she loses here, and that's me being generous to Laura.

Honesty is the best policy.

You're too kind.

I'm sorry that my attempt at humour to prick the (what I see as) overoptimism caused offence.

Incidentally, looking at a couple of online bookies, the people who put their money where their mouth is give Laura around an 8% chance today. For what that's worth.

I'm sorry that MY attempt at humour was taken so poorly

And I said Laura has a chance, I never stated that she was the favourite

Much better, got used to clusters pave. I guess now we know why Maria has been hitting with her, parts of that were Kvitova like!
