Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

It's nice that Laura and Heather are pushing each other to greater heights.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'd prefer her to go through qualies for Sydney but I think she'll join Heather in Auckland. She spends Christmas in Australia so I can't imagine her travelling back to China just for one week.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

She may also play Brisbane(first week).

Sydney is week 2 so it may depend how she does week 1. Personally I rather see her play Hobart.

According to the Independent, Laura is playing the new event in Shenzhen during the opening week. 3 papers have the same interview quotes though the other two don't mention this particular fact.

I'm glad she likes coming to China, but still I can't be there.. Hope she won't draw against so many Chinese again

The Grauniad and Wail articles showed up for me in Google alerts, but the Indy one never did. I'm impressed that you were able in the small hours to analyse all the articles and realise they were from the same interview but that only this one had the scheduling nugget.

Evidently Laura's been doing quite a bit of press lately as another batch of stories has shown up, based on new material, I think.

WTH?

Also, weird URL for the eurosport story, but it does link to a Laura item at the moment, apologies if it morphs into a Monfils one by the time you click it.

Early 20s

Anyway I'm glad her scheduling is sorted. Spending Christmas at home for a change must have been the deal maker. Hopefully China will be a good omen for her again

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Early 20s??!....

I'm happy her Dad is looking out for her financially. I can't wait to see how she does in 2013. It's going to be exciting!

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.
