Hi, welcome!

Laura's provisional schedule so far is...

1. 25k Surprise-qualifying
2. 25k Rancho Santa Fe- qualifying
3. WTA Monterrey- MD via SR
4. WTA Indian Wells- MD (I think) via SR

She also could get a WC into Miami as she is with IMG. There was also an article which mentioned she wanted to play Charleston, but that hasn't been confirmed or anything as the entry list is not out yet.

She's down for a $25k in Arizona next week.

Praying she draws Alex Stevenson, who's also in qualifying.

That doesn't mean she's not working hard in training. She did post a quick picture on twitter of her training, but she''s not going to fully document it for her fans...

Well, her friend Jenny is participating at The Bachelor, a TV show on ABC.

I hope maybe Laura got a last minute WC into a tournament or something. Or even taking some time out to do more training would be good.

With Jo singles form the girls might make it out to group 2.Just avoid Azarenka.

Mr.Sparkle She is on the entry list for 25k Surprise. I agree and have mentioned before that Laura should play the 10ks in the UK but she is sticking to US events. I doubt she will get any play in Fed cup but at least she will get to bond with the girls.

Yes, that is both a big strength and a big weakness for Laura. I mean, she can play terribly against high ranked opponents but in general she raises her game on those occasions. Conversely, she can thrash scrubs, but I think as soon as she starts to struggle in the match, she brings herself down too quickly. As I said before, a sports psychologist would do wonders, maybe even more than it did for Jo.

Andy' Yeah, maybe when I think Laura Robson made second week of Wimbledon once, made the fourth round, and had an opportunity there that you start thinking that it's possible.

Andy still waiting for Laura, long wait Andy

Yes Laura need o see a sport Psychologist.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

She needs match practice and 10K is probably the place to get it. The UK series coming up would be ideal except she'd attract the press's attention and currently she doesn't need it. Fed Cup does not sound like a good idea.

Tbh she's always had a tendency to play to the level of her opponent, whatever level that is. Sports psychology might help with that.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

No, I don't see the value in Laura going to Israel, for Laura or for GB.

Bepa and Alisa weren't too proud to go down to the 10k level. I wonder if Laura just can't face the idea of not winning such a tournament, and let's not kid ourselves, she'd be long odds against to win one she did play in.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

There is no need for her to join the GB team for Fed Cup.

Konta and Watson are perfectly capable of holding the team. Even Katie Swan will be a great addition.

Laura needs to focus on her at the moment. Her game at the moment isn't anything to do with her fitness. She's looked the best she's ever been since she became Pro in my opinion. She looks healthy and toned.

It's all mental. A few sessions with Konta's psychologist as StephenUK mentions could do wonders. Or any sport psychologist for that matter.

Tennis is more mental than anything and we seem to forget that. No matter how hard you train, if you're not mentally prepared on court the results won't come.
