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

Rybarikova is a good Clay Court player so I'm not expecting a win.

I just hope that Laura shows some sort of form.

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

Rybarikova has played very well this year but she has had a back injury for about a month now.

She has lots of slice in her game, likes to storm the net a lot but can be hit off court.

Please surprise us Laura

Hope she turns up tomorrow with some kind of form but think this is a tough match for her especially on clay

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

Had to stare at the 'WINNER- L.ROBSON' for quite a while

It feels good to write about her winning again and we can take a lot of positives from this!! Fought brilliantly from 2-2 second set. Thought she was actually unlucky not to win the first. Not sure if Magda's back injury was still prevalent but still Laura got the job done and showed plenty of determination from what it looks like.

Well done Laura Funny how she suddenly starts to care when it's not an international Getting closer to that top 32 !! Aga next, proud of what she's done here though

Yes Laura! It feels like so long since her last (non Fed Cup) win

Not expected at all, so hurrah!

Next round seems way too big a task right now, but I'm gonna enjoy a three set triumph for once!

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

It seems something clicked with her today. She recovered so well from losing that first set in a tiebreak. I'm so surprised she didn't fade afterwards.

So so happy.

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

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

Nice result to come home to! Three sets too


She plays well against top tenners;
Vs #3 Jankovic 2010: 3-6, 6-7(5)
Vs #6 Sharapova 2011: 6-7(4), 3-6
Vs #3 Sharapova 2012: 6-7(5), 3-6
Vs #8 Li 2012: 6-4, 6-7(7), 6-2
Vs #7 Stosur 2012: 4-6, 4-6
Vs #8 Kvitova 2013: 2-6, 6-3, 11-9

Not expecting a win or even a set but for her to just compete against Radwanska could give her a confidence boost. Then there's the doubles...

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Robson vs. Radwanska. If there is one thing we are sure of, it is the fact Laura loves and I mean loves playing the big names.

Sabine Lisicki

Laura Robson
Angelique Kerber
Jelena Jankovic
