Does any of you play tennis in England? Because I'm french and I've been living in London for a year. And I'm looking for a good tennis club in London. I've been playing tennis since I was 4.

I was ranked 3/6 ( it's a french ranking, I don't know if any of you know) which was quite good but for some reason at some point I didn't play much match and dropped in ranking now I'm 15/1. Anyway I would like to play tennis at college in the USA and receive a scholarship. But I know that the level is quite high, that's why I would like to find a good club where they have good practice because I need to improve and I haven't played for two months ( I was busy with school an other things).

I haven't been a member at any club in London so far, though I played team matches with one. Clubs here are so different from the one we have in France and they are much more expensive. But anyway can anyone help me, please?

You got in before me, was just about to suggest that.
Btw are you in a tennis club?

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura's section of the draw:

Robson v Hall
Zheng v Niculescu
Espinosa v Chang
Q v Jankovic

She should definitely make the quarters, though second round could be difficult.

And then maybe finally time to get that win over JJ?

Yes! They've had pretty close matches in the past but Laura was either injured or didn't take advantage. I think Laura's pretty comfortable with JJ's game.

Lets just hope JJ makes lots of errors and Laura can take advantage.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'm a bit worried about her possible match with Niculescu. I can see Niculescu having the kind of game that could irritate Laura. However, if Laura plays like she did toward the end of the year, then she'll have no problem.

Laura Robson

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

All in all, a very nice draw! Although I can see Niculescu causing Laura problems- more mental than anything.

Good luck Laura

Laura's 4th on matches start at 3am (for me), 11am local time. I guess she's be on about 7/8ish?



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......

Niculescu will definately bother Laura,funny shots and time wasting etc.Clever girl that one.If Laura beats her then could easily make the final.

The Observer: Laura Robson aims at top-10 ranking thanks to Andy Murray factor

Quote:
For that kind of success Croft believes those early competitions will be crucial. "She's got to try to get good draws, put herself up against the best in the world but mix it with lower tournaments to keep the confidence going." What kind of impression will she make on 2013? "I think she's on a roll at the moment. I think she's now a player that lots of people, if they draw her, will fear. That's what she's done, she's created that aura around herself. It's really exciting."
So, now they're openly admitting the draws are rigged.

I suppose Annabel would say she was talking about lifting the ranking to get a seeding and guarantee avoiding the best players in the first rounds.
