Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She played trash. Disgusting.

She better get practicing for Hobart now.

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

Monica has a unique game and Laura couldn't keep to her slow pace. She tried to rush each game and it cost her the match.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

As someone said in GM 'Some players can handle junk and other's can't.' and in Laura's case- she can't handle it at all!

Onto Hobart

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Niculescu's defence was just too much for Laura
Good luck in Hobart

Hard luck Laura! It;s not like she had anything to defend anyway. Good Luck in Hobart!
Does anyone know if she will be seeded in Hobart or not?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Didn't see the match but I imagine Niculescu is the sort of player to show up Laura's inexperience. It's key for Laura's coach to help her understand why her game was neutralised here so she can learn how to beat players of this type in the future.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I was hoping her match against Hsieh would have prepared her for this, as they both have 'junky' games, but I guess not.

On to Hobart we go.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Niculescu may be a junk balling pusher tricky opponent, but I still wasn't expecting such a poor scoreline

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The scoreline wasn't actually that bad, especially on Laura's serve. Her serve stats are well above what they usually are, second serve aside. She just had no clue what to do with Niculescu's serve. Normally, Laura can put pressure on her opponent with her groundstrokes on the return. But here? Nothing.
