Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I wonder why Laura is still in China. Wouldn't it be preferable to play in Australia, Auckland or Brisbane?
All the best for 2013.

Three potential reasons:

1) Money: Shenzhen is a 500K event, not a 235K. It makes some financial sense to go there instead.
2) Nostalgia: Asia is where she had her best run to date in Guangzhou. She might feel that the court in Shenzhen favours her more than the Aussie courts.
3) Weaker draw: The cutoff to get into Shenzhen is 102, Auckland's is in the 70s and Brisbane is a premier where most of the top 10 is playing.

Essentially, Shenzhen is where she has the greatest chance of seeing the best possible return on the investment of flying out there.

Will there be any streaming for Laura's match?

The stream will be available 6AM UK time.

I'm going to have to wake early to see this match!

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

A report from anyone who watches would be appreciated!

Happy New Year!

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura down two breaks 4-1 making way too many errors. If she cleans up her game she will blow Niculescu off the court. I don't believe Niculescu has hit a winner yet.

Laura Robson

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Not the best start 6-2 Niculescu is a tricky one!

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Not to be for Laura in Shenzhen this year, too many unforced errors and she couldn't really get in a rhythm. She didn't return very well and Niculescu played smartly, keeping in the rallies with patience. Ah well, on to Hobart. 6-2 6-4
