Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Need to enjoy this, this might be her last match against a top class player for a long while, Get that mode on . Vika will hit plenty of drop shots though

nijoco Obviously won't until after wimbledon now with all the handouts but it's really time she went back to ITF level events and worked on rebuilding her game and mental strength because you won't do that against top players all the day. How much feel can she really get for her game being battered time and time again. Stop being stubborn and pig headed laura and work on your game instead of expecting the world to give you something!

It's a really unlucky draw. Let's hope she can put up a decent show because receiving a couple of bakery products, even if they are from Azarenka, isn't going to do much for her confidence, nor will it help with getting much match play.

I actually think she'll do better v Vika than she did against Babos.

Losing to Vika is certainly a lot better than losing to someone like Tsurenko or Gasparyan.

True. Another plus is the match should be streamed, I would think...

Oh ffs! I was hoping Laura could at least get a first round win here as that would take her into the top 300. Clay is not Vika's best surface but still I don't see much of a chance for a win here. I guess the luck with the draws was bound to run out eventually.

Still...10 free points, woohoo!

I will not read too much into on court coaching , most players barely listen...

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

The problem is she seems to think she can some straight back after the best part of 2 years out and pick up at the same level she was at before she was injured. She can't and the continuous defeats won't be doing anything for her confidence. She needs to learn to compete again and the best way to do that is to listen to her coach and to play against players who are at her current level. If she builds it up I'm sure the ability is still there but she needs to recognise she's going to have to work for it. The ITF circuit on hardcourt in the far east is where she should be at the moment.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Laura was just frustrated of herself that's she sounded petulant on half-time coaching... I really hope she hire a mental coach because coming back from long time injury lay off is very difficult specially she missed the most important part of her career.

no-hay-igual I agree with the last two posts.

Watched the whole thing and it was fairly difficult. Laura was actually playing better than Timea at 1-0 down and then as soon as Timea hit two outrageous drop shots and then Laura relaxed too much at 40-0 up in the next game, the fight was over.

Her and Hadad almost had an argument on court, her movement is the worst it's probably ever been and she can't even do her bread and butter shots anymore where she would relish the opportunity to put away a short ball. Not to mention her serve is largely non-effective now but I think that's more to do with her trying to be more consistent with it.

Hopefully this was just a bad day because Indian Wells and Miami were much better. Clay just isn't her surface and never has been no matter how many times we dig up Palermo and the win against Aga. Still if she can get back to top 250 after her PR runs out I'll be relatively happy.
