So incredibly proud of Laura and how much she has improved from this time last year !!
Not her best form by far, but played well when it mattered and has shown everyone that she is getting tougher to break down !!
Heart may have been coming out of my chest in every point but i wouldnt have it any other way !! Congrats Laura
Sloane next, you can do it, believe
♥ Laura Robson ♥
♥ If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything
Oh wow! What a brilliant win for our beautiful Laura! Gutted that I missed the match, damn school, I had 2 free periods aswell Very impressive how she handled the third set unlike Kvitova... This should send a message out to all the haters and critics Stephens again next, hopefully she can use this momentum and confidence boost to reach the last 16
Hate the way some people are dismissing this. Yes, Kvitova was poor, and for large periods so was Laura, but how many 18 y/os on the tour have beaten 3 GS champions in the past 2 slams?
With success comes hate and jealousy.
They always come up with excuses;
Clijsters: 'she's virtually retired' - doesn't change the fact she hadn't lost at the USO since 2003
Na Li: 'she's inconsistent' - completely ignoring her brilliant form coming into the tournament
Kvitova: 'Been playing shit for months now' - even though she's still a top 8 seed.
People will run out of excuses one day, don't worry
