Re: Laura's Live Scoring Thread

You know, when I think about it, I can't think of any proper run of good form for Laura during her career thus far. Yes, she may have a good tournament here and there, and beat some good players, but most of the time we just end up discussing how she's going through a "rough patch". She needs to take a long think about what she wants from her career. I feel ready to give up on her. Without having actually watched the match, I can just imagine Laura slumping her shoulders throughout.

Re: Laura's Live Scoring Thread

Diabolical.

She should have just ended her season after the USO. Some of these Asian losses could really knock her confidence going into next year.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Aw, I feel the same sometimes. But she may surprise us.


Think about how rewarding it will be if she does live up to her full potential? You've followed her since juniors, don't leave now...

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

I know, it's just that, IMO, following the other British players is the exact opposite of following Laura. She is miles ahead of them in terms of talent, but I'm never left with the impression that they haven't given one hundred percent. Unfortunately with Laura, I often get that feeling. I may be wrong, but maybe it would be good if someone told her that, because maybe it would light a fire from within and spur her on to prove her doubters wrong.

Also, seeing Bouchard and Keys starting to out perform her is really annoying, because I sincerely believe she has so much more potential thaneither of them.

Whereas in her pre-career up to around the time she turned 15 there was almost nothing but good form...

Is that something you can achieve simply by willing it so?
I wish I could. (Though who else is there anyhow?)

Re: Laura's Live Scoring Thread

Just thought I'd say that I'm not really going to give up on Laura. I was just frustrated. It is about time that she started making good on her obvious talent. All I can say is thank God this season is over!

Re: Laura's Live Scoring Thread

Trying to watch two matches at once is always horrible. C'mon Wabson!

Re: Laura's Live Scoring Thread

Nothing quite like the first day of a slam...

Laura's outfit is fuglier than I expected, though. Damn it Stella.

Re: Laura's Live Scoring Thread

ES commentators are annoying me already.......wow really rankings are based on 12 months play? Seriously, you think anyone up at midnight watching this isn't a diehard tennis fan?
