Re: OPPA GANGNAM STYLE! - Asian Hardcourt Swing Cheering Thread

Disappointing performance today. Laura's lucky her opponent is ranked #157. Even being so lowly ranked she still gave Laura trouble.

Laura honestly needs to keep focused playing these lower ranked girls. Just because you're ranked higher doesn't mean they're gonna fold over and give you the win Laura.

The serve was so shaky today too. Needs to go for a quick practice later on.

Anyway first QF of the season!

Zheng Jie next! A repeat of the 6-3 6-3 win from last year would be great.

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

British Kvitova

Another one of those 'closer than it should have been' matches but at least she got the win. And we all know she can raise her game against better opponents, which she'll definitely have to do against Jie, by the looks of things.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

And GOATson...(on rare occasions).

TBH British Kvitova probably sums all those up anyway As long as she doesn't follow Petra's taste in men

2nd up on centre tomorrow, again after Jo. NB 11am BST.

And of course the nicknames we've given her like Lauerror, Errorson and of course me trying to make the Robson Rule, the Robson Rollercoaster, the Robbolercoaster things... I really need to get out more.

Anyway, she won. She won ugly, but screw it she's injured and it's hot. At the end of the day, in spite of poor play she won, and winning when playing below your best is always a good skill. Let's just hope Laura can up her game for the QFs.

I was so confused looking at the draw and seeing two Zhengs in a row...

We really should have called this subforum Robson's Rollercoaster or something, after all it's not like we get to do much lounging around and chilling during matches

I think it is fair to say that Laura wasn't unnerved by the crowd

I really think you're onto something here. Rollercoaster Robson would be the most dangerous ride in thorpe park

No, but I think we all need to sit down and take a few deep breaths afterwards. Perhaps Robson's Recuperation Room?

Besides, Laura's matches wouldn't be half as entertaining if it wasn't for the drama she provides.

Oh, and in other news I've just received a job offer for my pre-reg year. I should also be hearing the outcome from my other interviews over the next day or so. You're the first people other than my Mum I've told. Today was a good day.
