2012 British PYW Championships - champions: Laura Robson, Keothavong (finally)/Dunne

Welcome to Glasgow for the 5th British Championship of PYW!

Last year, Anne Keothavong finally got the better of Laura Robson, only to find herself narrowly beaten by Heather Watson in the Cardiff final. This year, Robson and Watson have taken a further step, while Australian-born Johanna Konta has finally been granted a British license and enters as 7th-seed. Katie O'Brien has also retired, but otherwise the entry list remains largely unchanged. A number of interesting juniors have been granted entry, including local 14-year-old Maia Lumsden and ITF top-50 Katy Dunne. Also worth following is the 16-year-old Harriet Dart, who qualified on the basis of her own WTA ranking.



2008: Laura Robson d. Anne Keothavong 6-7 6-1 6-4 2-6 7-5
2009: Laura Robson d. Anne Keothavong 7-5 6-4 7-5
2010: Laura Robson d. Anne Keothavong 6-4 3-6 6-3
2011: Heather Watson d. Anne Keothavong 6-4 3-6 8-6


2011: Tara Moore/Heather Watson d. Sarah Borwell/Samantha Murray 6-2 6-2
