I think it has, anyway. I thought I saw the trainer do it.

And a good hold by Laura.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura actually was pretty quick to get to that one

Kuznetsova

I can't tell if Sloane is just playing it too cool or if the crowd are having an effect on her.

Kuznetsova

The latter I think. Plus Laura breaking her immediately before the MTO. I think that rattled her a bit.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Why do I have a horrible feeling about this next game?

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Well this set so far has been infinitely better than their entire Hobart encounter.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Yeah, where the hell was this Laura at Hobart. Or against Petra, for that matter.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I missed the Hobart match but this is much much better than last round.
The crowd is so behind Laura

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Shame. But the set really started at 4-4. From then on it was just power vs speed. Speed won but only very marginally. I'm not too disheartened yet.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I dont think it's good for Laura if the match goes into a 3rd set

Long term, no. A second long match will really affect her ability to win in R4. But the longer this match lasts, the more frustrated Sloane will get. She's already showing signs of that.
