Arguably, Laura's progressed further than Sloane had at the same time. Her results against top players are already better and she's actually reached a tour final.
I agree here. Laura is still a good year behind Sloane in terms of tennis years but her progression is much better. Two consecutive 3rd rounds at grand slams, two top 10 players beaten, former world number 1 beaten and a tour final all starting from that semi final in Palermo

And if we just think about it, this time last year, Laura was about to enter a 25K in ITF, where she lost in the QF. This year will be more of a consolidation year for her, getting to second week of wimbledon and USO and winning a tour title, will be enough to set her up for 2014 which i predict will be the year for laura
