Re: 2012 Season
I personally don't think it has much, if anything, to do with Laura and Heather.
The bad form has pretty much been there since the beginning of 2011. Only a brief run of form at the end of 2011 kept her in top 100 for 2012, and once those points were off, she plummeted. So it doesn't really seem that it can be because of the youngsters. I think she is just coming to the end of her career, and lacks real fight.
She served for both sets today, and in fact was up 52 with a DOUBLE break in the second set.
