Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

According to Jorn she withdrew a while ago, must have been a day or so after her Doha loss. So perhaps she was injured in Doha? Who knows! Tough start to year for Laura, hasn't been able to capitalize on having few points to defend at this point.

Hopefully her year will pick up soon? IW next scheduled stop.

EDIT: just saw the tweet you mentioned, this it all too confusing...

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

ERGH i hope she's not injured, her ranking is going to plummet now if she's not earning any points . I need to do some research to see what's going on. She said she was already in Dubai so it's confusing that she's now withdrawn...


She may have gotten a MDWC?

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

YESS!! i knew she MUST have gotten a MDWC.

Great news, i hope she's overcome her shoulder issue and can get some match wins.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Fantastic. So annoying that they don't publicly announce wildcards before, or at least at the time of the qualifying draw.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Great news on the WC, though am I the only one that thinks qualies might have been useful to get matches under her belt? Even tho it is a really tough qualies draw..interesting, wasn't expecting her to get a WC. Wonder why they gave it to her. Good news tho!

She has a good agent/team.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Very true

Kuzzy isn't happy with the Dubai WCS, from twitter: 'Can someone explain to me the WCs of Dubai? What a choice..."

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

^ can't say I blame her, to be fair

I think Laura would have been better in qualifying too. It's such a string field

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah the more I think about it, the more I think the WC is a mistake...she really needs matches at this point and would have been seeded in qualies. She would have been 7th seed rather than Zheng meaning her section would have been:

(3)Vesnina v Mattek-Sands
(wc)Bychkova v Rodionova
Morita v Dushevina
(wc)Woerle v (7)Zheng (Robson)

Definitely some winnable matches there. Vesnina tough to qualify but she'll go into the MD unseeded, who wants to bet on a top seed in the first round? xD Although as someone mentioned in GM a first round against Kuzzy would be fun
