Unless she has a duel citizenship, where she has rights to Australia and UK...

But i'm sure has a British passport. If not, she still fells British. She's grown up into the culture. She's been living here since she was 6.

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

Laura does well on Clay, I think her current game is less suited in Australian fast h courts

It was a joke. Aimed at some of the talk going on in GM at the time and continued to go on in the results thread.

And Laura has a British passport. She's had one since before turning pro.,

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Not a bad run for Laura.
Defeating Kvitova is a nice accomplishment. And considring that she defeated 2 Top 10 last august in New-York, her future looks very good.

Have a look at Igrecman's Satirical WTA Tennis Photoshops. That is so disrespectful

Disagreed, to me it looked like she was moving better than she was last year. Stephens just hits it better than Kim, and Laura was slow to react a few times. Also, I doubt she was physically in the best shape after the marathon against Petra.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I disagree, she's not using any her of hee lefty advantages , like Kerber , she brings ball back when drag outwide.
Stephens did not hit better than Kim, Laura was moving worst than in Guangzhou or US Open. Her opening match against Oudin was horrible. She was moving well against Niculescu, than all 3 of her matches here. She's hasn't play her best at all. Keep improving .

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

If she was born in Melbourne(which she was), she'll have a dual citizenship- british and australian passports. Doesn't make her any less British- she chooses to represent the UK which shows her true nationality.

Shame about the loss today but it's still been a good tournament

True story, Laura's first tournament as a Brit was Junior Wimbledon 2008.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I spoke to her old coach here today..Laura has been receiving treatment on her shoulder since Oudin match. The Kvitova epic didnt do her recovery any favours.

Also Laura's brother went to same school as my brother...he was born in London. So they have been in the UK a long time.
