A top 30 ranking, at least one grand slam QF and, why not, a title. She has to deal with her inconsistency.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I would say a minor title, at least 5 top 10 wins, and to be seeded for Wimbledon.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

To become a consistent top 30. Last 16 or better in at least two different slams. At least one title.

Although I wouldn't be surprised if she achieved more than that.


Sharapova | Watson | Muguruza | Konta | Broady | Bencic | Robson | Cirstea | Lisicki

A relatively consistent top 30 year, first tour title, hopefully a slam QF and to stay healthy/injury free

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The only thing that would leave me disappointed is if she doesn't end the year in the top 30. I really don't want to suffer the consequences of her finishing the year outside it.

I'd also like to see a WTA title with her name on it and her not to be eliminated from any slams in the first round. But those would be icing on the cake. A cake baked by BT.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I expect quite a few big top 10/20 wins but also still expect some random, disappointing losses too. A seeding for RG and a close to top 20 finish to the year would be nice, as well as a maiden title.

The only thing I am 100% certain of is that the jealous haters in GM will be insufferable no matter what Laura's year is like - excuses when she wins, gloating when she loses. We must raise above it, peeps.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I agree, about the maiden WTA title. If she doesn't win one at International level i'll be hugely disappointed.

A Top 30 placing would be nice too. Consistency is a major thing Laura needs to work on. I want her to make 3rd rounds the minumum in all slams next year. A QF at Wimbledon would be nice. (British Media would go bonkers LMAO)


I'm expecting some ridiculous losses too... hopefully there won't be many. I just hope she doesn't have a good run at one tourney only to lose in the first round of another.

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She's got a lot of expectations to live up to... by the Media and WTA...

It's going to be so embarrassing if she doesn't provide an amazing season.

Pretty much what people above said. Top 30, win a couple of matches at every major, reach the second week of a slam one or two times, some big wins.

Since she has been on the pro tour, us laura fans have learnt to accept the tough losses in anticipation that she will produce some amazing, awe-inspiring results too. You should not worry about the media or the wta, just keep on believing in her, enjoy watching her and the results will come in time

Shit.

Rumours were true then!


How's this possible... Shenzhen and Hobart over-lap each other?

She'll only have a DAY to get from China to Australia...
