Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Didnt meet the 5 games set goal, but she was really mad at herself.

I think her game is still not even her 2012 level.. her game a problem.

Really need somebody to help her or talk to her. Those Wcs runs out post Wimbledon, reality might be harsh for her soon.

Hope she can do something on grass.

Also I am under the impression, shes struggling physically? Shes out of breathe and loses power on her strokes after a hour.

First of all I am almost crying to watch her playing, because this is not more the fresh girl. For me she looks very uncomfortable on court.

I see three huge Problems.

First of all, of course the mentally problem is clear. Very bad Errors. Not only unforced, it is really bad. Clear Points, which are going out and the confidence boost gets the Opponent.

But it is not only a mentally Problem.

The next huge part is her defensive liability. If there is a opponent, who is pressuring, she can not sustain this pressure. The error is coming fast or she is not reaching the balls anymore. She is in this ability the total opposite of a Radwanska or a Kerber. She has to improve this part. Without a defensive ability, she will never reach top 100 again. No question about that.

The third part is her service. I see a worse Service after her wrist injury. Perhaps it is the wrist or not. But Petkovic was a class better in Service than she was. And that is dissapointing.

She has to improve a lot, if she wants to get back in a quality niveau. And I hope she is starting that. Which is her Coach at the Moment by the way? Sorry for this dumb question, i do not know that.

Next tournament grass?

Hi! Nice post. I completely agree those are three of her biggest problems. Her defence was especially bad today, she was going off balance very easily and sometimes would be unable to do anything with a slightly angeled hard hit shot.

Her coach is currently Mauricio Hadad and her next tournament will be on grass at WTA Nottingham, as she has received a WC into the main draw.

You seems to unable to accept any other opinions, other than the ones that you like. Further discussions with you will be pointless, I am just going to ignored you like Royals suggested and wish you have a good life.
The delusional bit is claiming Madrid is perfect for Laura when she has played it a total of once is ridiculpus. Especially while she has a win against Venus Williams in Rome to match Aga is silly. There are different types of clay and Robson isn't good or suited to any of them.

Nobody can't say you can't have an opinion, but if you are stating it publically then be prepared for it to be open to scrutiny, especially when you can't post any use of reason or factual evidence to support it. I've been corrected on things multiple time son these forums, I don't hide awya or keep acting like my opinion is valid when it is clearly disproven, I apologise for getting it wrong and move on. Being stubborn and claiming "mu opinion, my opinion, my opinion" constantly when the logic of your unevidenced statement is questioned is not an open mind.

And they you wnat to copy Royals who claimed Laura had a poor 2013, the year she had her best runs, biggest victories over ig players and achieved her highest rank by a mile and then reported me for exposing whta ridiculous statement it was.

Also Putin loves drop shots, she will be an even bigger nightmare on clay.
