Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

Caroline really isn't playing AMAZING tennis, just good tennis.

Laura however is playing BAD tennis. A lot of the errors coming on the second/third shots and has nothing to do with Caro's defensive skills. Just plain ugly errors.

You said she had every chance, it's not looking that way.

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

No need, the thread will only be up for a day or two.


Wow I thought robson will win with a score of like 7-5 7-6 or lose in 3 sets , I never anticipated Wozniacki will win this easily

This is rough. Short of a very good run at Birmingham the ranking will take a hit too. Need to get a coach and go do some serious work on the serve and gameplan.

She did have every chance? She's just messed it up with poor serving and crazy amounts of UE. And it's not over yet....

Poor Laura, please DON'T go on Twitter today. The angry gamblers are going to hammer you.
