Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I hope Laura has a good run here to build up some confidence before the IW/Miami swing. Although its such a tough field here a 1r loss wouldn't be too surprising.

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

I agree... playing some qualifying matches would have been better...

Me! i think she's going to have a horrible draw... but oh well. She just has to try her best and hopefully pull off some upsets

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura draw, how ironic

She plays Putintseva the other wildcard in R1

Petra Kvitova [6] - Qualifier
Ana Ivanovic - Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
Laura Robson [WC] - Yulia Putintseva [WC]
Agnieszka Radwanska [3] - Bye

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

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The tennis gods are so messed up...

Well it could have been worse! Though Aga in R2 wouldn't be fun! Total miss match up of style....Anyway R1 could be tough, Laura should win on paper, but with the form she's in and the weird (and unusual) pressure of playing a player younger than her this might not be a fun match.

C'mon Laura, really need to win this, 60 points for a R1 win would be much appreciated. Why do I have such a bad feeling?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She says she had to fly through Jordan (from Fed Cup) to get to Doha last week and thinks it may have happened there.

Winning a round in Dubai will earn her $18k, just think of all the jewellery she can buy with that Extra incentive to beat Putintseva

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

The Mail quotes an anonymous friend.
Quote:
'Laura had a mixture of pieces stolen, some of great sentimental value and other pieces that she has bought for herself or been given as presents,' said her friend.

Wow, I never would have guessed that the stolen jewellery might have included gifts.

Lets hope she didn't have anything too sentimental stolen
