QUEEN LAURA as I said. She held her nerve against a nervous Cirstea. The nerve of a champion.

Re: Princess Laura becomes Queen of British Tennis

Whats great to see about Laura, and what I feel seperates her from some other young players, is that she dominates with her sheer Tennis ability and not natural athleticism, today she out rallied Li Na on a hardcourt, she dominated rallies against Kim Clijsters, and when her serve is at 65%+ and her FH is firing she looks invincible.

But yeah, it way to early to say that she is the real deal. Just remember how much real deal Rezai was...a lot of people have praised Larcher de Britto (or whatever is her last name) and where is she now? There a lot of real deals that ended up nowhere. Just take a minute, breathe, let her play few more tournaments. Who knows, maybe she isn't done with winning in New York, maybe she will have the same path like Kerber this year...or maybe she will pull out a Rezai

Nevertheless, when it comes to USO She's done great job.
Exactly. Celebrate her good tournament but let's not go nuts here. She's been serving very well this week and her opponents haven't done much to move her around. If either of those things changes, she'll have a much harder time winning points. Big and slow only works if you have Davenport-like consistency. It remains to be seen if Laura does.

Re: Laura becomes the real deal!

Wozniacki has had a great career, world number one. But Laura is not a pusher like Oudin and Wozniacki respectively. Laura is a shot maker.

Not even close to being a valid comparison.
So in that case Wozniacki was never a real deal?

Re: Laura becomes the real deal!

She has been building on this for ages, won matches at Nottingham, Eastbourne, Olympics and Palermo. I think also the fact that she had starting beating the beater players has helped. Vinci, Safarova and then Kim and Li. She has pushed so many of them this year Jankovic in Copenhagen, Maria Olympics, Schiavone Wimbledon.
