Cut her some slack. She was playing with a shoulder injury. Anyone with a set of eyes should have realised Laura didn't look right.

Well, I've been following Laura's results since 2006, and in every tournament she's had GBR by her name.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

This may have been posted before, I'm afraid I can't be bothered to check. N.B. dated 13 Jul 2008.

I think we have to give the Fail the benefit of the doubt on the main contention. However if

Until February this year, Laura, 14, who was born in Australia but came to this country aged six, played all her matches as a representative of her native land.
is true, it's not just *hingis_forever*'s recollection that is seriously awry.

I do remember reading somewhere, probably in a forum post and not really admissible in court, that prior to receiving her UK passport Laura had special permission from the ITF to represent GBR. Hearsay, then, but it makes sense.

EDIT: see also this thread, http://www.tennisforum.com/archive/i...?t-196527.html, undoubtedly copied from the contemporary Eddie Herr entry list.

If Laura was playing through pain fair does.She deserves credit for not pulling out. Hope she hasn't done any lasting damage.

Don't come into this thread again and post crap like this- you're ridiculous. You hope she represents Oz? We often wish that you'd leave and represent another forum.

You're not worth any more words.

Happy Birthday Laura! 19 today. (In Australia)


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