Taylor did serve for the match at 5-3 but dropped 3 straight games, she broke back but played an awful tiebreaker

Not happy with that scoreline. I hope Townsend played like a superstar, otherwise that is just not good enough from Laura.

So she choked. Hope she does not make this a habit

Could she still enter the Junior draw?

Well it was too close for comfort but I really admire Laura's fighting spirit from 2-5 down.

Laura should be winning that match far more comfortably. I hope Townsend is some sort of Phenom. I read she played well. So good luck to her in the future.

LOL.

Yeah, choking/getting out-ballsed by Laura Robson is kinda awful but a great effort from her otherwise. Hopefully a big name for the future.

Yes, she was already announced as a WC recipient. :)

Great.

She will have another chance with Laura there, or in the future.
At 15, she has plenty of room to improve

To prevent choking, you have to catch it early while they are still young

Early intervention is the best way to get rid of it


Someone need to get Taylor now before she get to be 17

Great result for a 15 year old IMO. Not a lot of match experience, and still pushed Robson to her limit. She will hopefully do well in the Junior Draw.

But losing 7-0 in the tie breaker after service for the match is not good, even at 15

I believe she only served once for the match.

No, but is it that surprising? She probably rushed herself horribly and didn't give Laura a chance to even tremble. We're loooong ways away from 15/16 year olds being mental GOATS (JCap/Hingis/Austin etc).

Amazing Laura! I really think she could three or four rounds in the main draw! In the past she has shown us her potential many times, it's high time she did the same in a slam.

Laura seems kinda lucky to get through. But if your opponent chokes you've got to take advantage. It was a good comeback and great tiebreaker.

Inexperience cost Taylor this match. Laura was not playing well but played a flawless tiebreak. Taylor was scrambling the best she could but a combination of too many missed first serves and Laura avoiding dumb UEs gave the match to Miss Robson.

Taylor did not "choke" away the match. She was down 5-6* but broke to force the match to a tiebreak, so she was actually playing well entering the tiebreak. She could have easily lost 5-7 in the third if not for her fight.

Taylor :sad: she seems like a potential prodigy though :D.

Hopefully she can do damage in the juniors, unlike lots of players who have a good result in seniors, but then suck ass in juniors, such as Caroline Garcia at the French.

I had never heard of this Taylor Townsend person before this week, but I was pretty impressed by her little mini-run here. Saw some of her first round and I thought it was a great performance for a 15 year old. She's a little overweight, but I think she has a lot of potential.
