Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

From Sonyopentennis

"The Russian/Slovenian pair converted five of their 10 break points to seal the win in 70 minutes. The two were contesting their fifth final in 2013, having also finished runner-up in Doha, Dubai and Indian Wells.

Petrova was appearing in her fourth straight final with her fourth different partner at Crandon Park and successfully retained the trophy after triumphing last year with countrywoman Maria Kirilenko. Srebotnik also collected her second trophy in Miami, having captured the crown in 2008 with Ai Sugiyama."

On reflection I don't think there is any need to feel too disappointed. In fact, going to a second set tie break was a pretty good achievement after the 1st set and given the quality & experience of the opposition.
