She is playing her first WTA match this week in the first round of quallies for the Tier III Bogota tournament against Mathilde Johansson! That's a great draw for a Tier III qualifying draw. Go Lara! :bounce:

Lara lost 6-3 6-1.But good to see her take a chance.She turned 17 the other day and definately is a good prospect.

She has a great forehand and good serve and moves quite well.Backhand needs a bit of work.Isn't anywhere near as good as her forehand.

How would you compare her to the rest of the young British players such as Katie, Mel, Hannah, and Claire?

I thought I would bump this seeing as she has finally overcame her injury. Last week she qualified for the $25K Pelham challenger, losing to Sarah Taylor 61 62 in the first round. This week she is playing the $50K in Juarez and won her first round of qualifying 61 75 over Liina Suurvarik. She plays Story Tweedie Yates for a spot in the main draw I believe! Go Lara! Get into the top 500 before the end of the year! ;)

Um not sure. Shes a different player to all of them really. Shes kind of like a modern day clay courter. Has a huge western grip on her forehand.

I saw her when she was 16 shes almost 18 now. Shame she got this injury as she was going great guns in both seniors and juniors.

Personally i was more impressed by Mel and Katie but they are 2 years older than Lara. With her junior results i'd say shes sure to get top 500 at least and i wouldn't be too suprised to see her top 300 beyond that i don't know. I think Mel and Katie are better players than her but shes prob the same level as Claire but has a more explosive forehand so i'm not sure.
