It is hard to predict. But she definitely has the talent to be between 20-30.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

It's a tricky one, injuries etc can pop up and get in the way of stuff. I'd be happy with top 30 or top 32 so she's seeded for the AO next year. Lot of points to defend at the end of the year tho, can see her perhaps moving into the top 30 during the year and then dropping back out of it just before the end. So possibly 35-40 for YE ranking?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She has the ability to be Top 20. But it's all about consistency and staying healthy/injury free.

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

Seems a lot more realistic to me.

I hope she can edge into the Top 30 though. like 31/32.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Thanks for posting that highlight video Jamie!

Laura really seems to play amazing at the USO. She was 17 in that video and she was playing amazing in that match.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

With only a handful of points to defend until Roland Garros in May, can Laura get a seeding there? Players ranked 32 currently has 1498 points, Laura at #43 has 1253 points. So needs around 250 points or to be safe 300 in the next few months to be seeded at FO.

The Indian Wells/Miami swing will be crucial. So many points on offer.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

As far as ranking points go, there's really not a huge difference between players ranked between 20-40. One big result can see a player rocket up.

Even a moderate goal of winning just one match at the 3 PMs and 2 P5s between now and RG will earn 380 points. Enough to see Laura well inside the top 30. I think a close-to-top 20 ranking by Wimbledon is a very realistic expectation.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Interesting, its really so draw dependent at this stage. Get a few good draws and she can rack those wins up relatively easily even at this level. Bad draws and the opportunity is gone. Will be so much easier when she does eventually get seeded in the big events and she gets the chance to pick up decent points before meeting the big guns.

I'd be ecstatic with anything in the 20-30 range by wimbledon.

On her ranking breakdown http://www.tennis4wta.com/laura-robson/Rankings.html. Good opportunities in Indian wells + miami and should really take of advantage of the weak field in florianopolis

Yeah xD Very good for this year so far! Lot of expenditure for a travelling tennis pro though, bet Krajan doesn't come cheap and having to pay for her team's travel, board, food etc. Did you see that article at the end of last year where she said Krajan moaned cos they had to travel economy rather than business class and he couldnt sleep on the flights? Laura said there was no way she could afford for them to fly business class yet xD

Oh any idea who runs laura's fanpage? The unofficial one? Wondered if they were on here at all.

I'm pretty sure the LTA will pay for most, if not all, of Krajan's wage
