Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Hmmm not sure about Laura's draw....

She's got to up her game, i'm still not convinced about her form. Dani could give her trouble and Kirilenko too...

It's going to be so awkward if Laura and Kirilenko play as they're now best buddies

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Could have been better but also could have been a lot worse.

Avenge your Wimbledon 2009 loss, Laura

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'm confused.... so Laura is already in Doha?

So she left Israel yesterday?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah she could have left early this morning and travelled today, getting there this evening.

Most likely yes and that's why she got a Tuesday start like babos, Vinci, Safarova,wickmayer,...

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura v Hantuchova on now.

Laura held in a lengthy first game but lost 8 of the next 10 points to hand Daniela the break. Currently down 1-2*


Edit - breaks back and holds to lead 3-2*

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

First set to Hantuchova 6-4

4 aces from Dani in that set. It's been a while since I've seen her play and I seem to remember her having a decent, well placed serve, but not a 4-aces-per-set serve. This may have more to do with Laura's poor anticipation.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Not a great showing here in Doha.

Can't really blame Fed Cup either as Dani had it too.
