Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-
The more I think about it the more I'm worried about this arrangement.
What would happen if Laura gets off to a slow start and fails to defend her AO points while Genie moves along? Her 'coach' will go jetting back to North America with her best friend at the time of Fed Cup while she's left with her first time apprentice coach who was playing Futures and Challengers just a few months ago.
The UK media would eat her alive.
It could also be quite a strain on their friendship if one of them does well and the other struggles. I hope it works for both of them.

Yes that's what I meant when I said this type of setup worked for Genie up to now but Laura is not Genie. Maybe being around Genie will help her.
