When will Anabel Croft realise she knows nothing about the modern game and just go home?

Laura Robson of Great Britain in action last week. Laura looks to have survived the fierce pressure of junior tennis to make her way onto the ATP tour

To be fair to Annabel, it was actually Jo Durie who said that a child could be stabbed on court. However, I like it when Annabel makes a fool out of herself so I will just pretend she said it :angel:
