Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Since the old thread has gone over the 5,000 post limit, I figure that it needs to be replaced by a shiny new one. So here it is.

Achievements:
  • Olympic mixed doubles silver medal (w/ Andy Murray)
  • Singles semi final - Palermo 2012
  • Grand Slam 4th round - US Open 2012, Wimbledon 2013
  • Defeated Kim Clijsters in her final singles match
  • Singles Final - Guangzhou 2012
  • WTA Newcomer of the year 2012

I didn't realise there was one.

This thread title is going to take some getting used to.

For the record, link to Daily Wail article on coach appointment.

Robson follows up Olympic success by appointing Krajan as new coach

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Yeah, not a great Q-Draw for Robson in Cincy. Assuming she wins her first match and the seedings hold she's got Ula Radwanska in the second round.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Forget about Ula, Laura might not get past Dushevina. Uugh.

EDIT: Needn't have worried. Laura won 6-2, 3-6, 6-4.

Decent win.

Hope she beats Ula, I really dislike her game.

Things have changed now, both players improved a lot.
