Laura probably calls them sluts as they walk past one another during changeovers and makes threats to spread lies about them.

when you are starting out your senior career, a bit of luck goes a long way. this puts laura close to the top 230.

it is also good for the tournament shes still in. her match had by far the biggest crowd nd following in qulaies.

Not a great way to get a first MD win but she must embrace these chances. All the pressure is on Wickmayer now. Good luck Laura :yeah:

Stef :hug:

Yeah Laura :) Shame about the way the win was got though.

Things looking good for a big breakthrough on the grass, maybe not the next match though

Nice to see her pick up her first WTA MD win! :D Shame it was through retirement, but you can't pick how you win.

I saw the first set of this then went to check out some of the other matches so missed the retirement. It was very strange because Stefanie seemed to be the better player but Laura's serve got her out of jail very often. Voegele was just very solid and Robson was hitting rather brainlessly and it seemed inevitable Stef would come through. At the end of the set though she started to make a few more errors and that's what gave the set to Laura.

Very unconvincing though, especially the body language, her coach actually had to shout "BODY LANGUAGE!" on set point, then she automatically slapped her thigh and started jumping up and down :lol:: Yeah, dined out on that lefty wide serve.

Pics to come, guys.

I was there and was really surprised by the retirement. Steffy looked completely uninterested. At the end of the first set, she called the trainer who came and gave her treatment. First game in the next set, she broke Robsons serve and as they were changing ends said something to Robson and the umpire and shook hands. :shrug: Robson herself looked surprised that she retired. But it didn't look anything too bad, compared to Kulikova in the match before. Let's hope she gets better soon.
