Q. Is it in some ways more satisfying the fact that it was kind of you didn't play quite as fluidly as you did in New York and therefore more satisfying?

LAURA ROBSON: Well, I would say all the wins are equally satisfying, but this one was probably the toughest in terms of, you know, how long the match was and how up and down it was.

I think the turning point of the match, it seems, was when my agent got pooped on by a bird. (Laughter.)

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

So excited about the match up with Sloane. It feels like a new generation is emerging at the moment with these two and also Vekic, Keys and potentially Barty on the way up too. Take down Generation Suck!

Strycova ~ Robson ~ Watson ~ Gajdosova ~ Shvedova

Petkovic ~ Parmentier ~ Swan ~ Errani ~ Vekic ~ Pavlyuchenkova ~ Halep ~ Konta ~ Riske

Happy she got the win, Sloane will beat her sadly. Hope Laura can put up a good fight.

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Great fight from Laura, I'm so proud! It was an error fest but she got the win in the end and these sort of matches can only help her improve. Sadly, I don't think she'll have much left in the tank against Sloane AND Sloane is in amazing form- she's playing top 10 tennis at times. Hopefully they'll be put on a show court and Laura will be inspired!

Good luck Laura

Only just realised that this was her 100th career victory Big milestone deserves a win big.

Kuznetsova

I don't think she should be too tired from her match with Kvitova. The points were really short and definitely not grueling.

Laura Robson

I agree. It was only her third match of the week (including doubles), and the other two were very short.
