Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She beat Li! I guess that the breakthrough we've been waiting for. So proud to have been a fan for more than 4 years

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

she did it again she played so well in the final set held her nerves perfectly, converted first match point first two sets weren't really good from both, UEs >>> winners but Laura played extremely well when it mattered (the final set)

Can Laura win 2012 USO? She has a pretty good chance.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

One step at a time 18 Majors. She's still got to get through Vika and Stosur.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'll get this in before everyone else does.(*)

First British woman through to second week of a slam since Sam Smith in 1837 or something.

(*) Or not.

Tried and tested jinx tactic?

She's 66/1 for the title at bet365.com, if anyone fancies a flutter.

Me, I think there's more chance of the Mayan 2012 prediction coming true. (And if the first thing happens, it's surely a herald of the second.)

This was huge for Laura, she backed up her 1st big win, and was incredible mentally after letting the 2nd set slip & getting a couple of bad calls! So impressed. Finally served well in the 3rd & it made the difference!

Another big test now: it will be interesting to see how she handles Sam's serve & TS!

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

OMG people, calm down. She's in R4, a little bit early to speak about winning the title

What? I just don't want to get ahead of myself. I'd love Laura to win a GS. I just don't think it's worth forgetting that Laura's still got two tough matches to get past before she's even in the semis.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

The next match will be a fascinating one. Pretty an sure it'll be an AA night match: defending champion vs. tournament darling.

The key will be how well Laura handles Sam's serve and top spin (doubt she'll have faced anything like it before), if she can use her height, time her shots right, get on the return and rush Sam (like Masha does) she really has the game to cause the Aussie some major trouble!

Not seen her play yet, but it sounds like Sam's playing well. Have to say though, the pressure will really ramped up on her, we'll see if she can handle it!
