Yeah, I watched quite a bit of this because I was so sick of hearing the word "out" in the women's semi - another comeback from 3-5 down to win the set. She's got so much going for her, left handed, big serve, physique, groundstrokes - she's already overachieved here, anything else is a bonus. Just needs to be left alone to carry on the good work she's been doing.

:haha: Yeh I remember hearing that the big hope from Serbia was going to demolish young Laura!


Very impressive match, didnt think she would hit the ball as well as she did. Good luck in the SF!

Laura really reminds me of Patty in her mannorisms and her game too. I like what I see.

:lol: Bojana is quite good but doesn't have much in the ways of tactics like so many of the girls.

Yes. :devil:

That forehand. :hearts:

She seems to be a perfectionist too. I like her personality from what I've seen and heard.

Jovanovski's grunt though :help: :tape:.

My thoughts exactly.

Her gameplan consisted of hitting the ball as flat and hard as she can down the line the entire match. :lol:

I like Robson. :)

She needs to cut down on the double faults, though. :help:

Jovanovski is overhyped. Big baseline hitters like her are a dime a dozen. You need more than that.

Laura Robson, on the other hand, has the game and composure to succeed. Britain finally has some one (on the women's side) to root for.

wow well done laura!!! :yeah:
coming from a break down in both sets prove what a fighter she is
jovanovski played ok, just not much not her game except big hitting. i was impressed with her attitude though. she keeps her emotions under control
good luck in the semis laura :D

Great match from Laura and definitely great fighting qualities! It'll be very interesting to see how she progresses in the next few years as she looks like a huge prospect.

First person I thought of when I watched her was Patty. They have the same sway when they walk :lol:

Mmm, I saw a bit of Tabakova/Hercog and the first set was very sloppy indeed. Looks like the second set was a lot better quality from Romana but I'd switched to Elena/Venus by then. Was more impressed with both Lesley and Bojana in their matches against Laura, but should be interesting.

I was watching her and talking to someone online and mentioned what you said, word for word, the moment I saw her. I can definitely see myself really warming up to her in the next few years. For now I'll just support her. ;)
