Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I doubt she'll come to Ningbo if she can go further in USO. I hope she will come (of course not by losing in USO). I might be able to go

No, please don't. I hate the player subforums. I end up never bothering to check up on Keothavong because her threads are hidden inside the subforum.

As long as there aren't that many British players, a thread in the main forum works fine. If there were tons of new posts every day, then maybe. But there aren't.

We could have a common picture thread in the main forum for all the players for example, or just continue to post inside player thread like now. Same with cheering thread.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Another vote against a subforum for now. Anne gets far fewer posts than Bally, despite a similar career, because she's hidden away in a subforum.

If Laura gets so big that posts about her swamp the other British women, then it would be time, but she's not at that level yet. Even if there were two threads for her - one for media and pics and another for discussing her matches, it would still be easy to handle in the main Brit forum.

Been thinking more about this match, I suspect that Li will handle the weight of Laura's shot better than Kim did. She's played more matches & is fitter and stronger than Clijsters was. She's also played Kvitova a couple of times recently, which may count for something.

Of course a lot depends on which Li turns up!

Laura has nothing to lose though, I hope for a good match.

Well, no matter the result, she didn't get smashed which some were predicting.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Just got back in. I have the impression there were no match points, just a point for match point?

Oh. Listening on radio now. Sounds as though Laura was a bit unlucky with that overrule.

Laura currently 3/3 on keys for the match, Li 0/3. Never seen that in a close match before.
