Thanks. I just looked at Katy's results and her form hasn't been great recently either so anything might happen here.

Don't despair she's got a Lucky Loser spot in Round 1

Another disappointing loss. Then I thought, oh well, maybe she and Freya will have some success in the doubles, but I see they're playing the top seeds Mestach and Sanchez - ranked 81 and 59 respectively in doubles. Sanchez got to the Semis in Stanford with Jo last week. So not much chance there either.

Boooo!!!

Next up are $25ks.. Fort Worth and Landisville... She will be in the MD for both and for Fort Worth she will probably be seeded...

I hope she plays better. At least it's good to hear that she is playing better during practice. It's concerning that her return is sooo bad though. Laura used to be soo good at punishing second serves.

Not good even though she won 2 matches in Q.

Her tendency to play down to whatever competitor is across the net. I was just looking at scorelines when either of the Facey sisters plays anyone with a record of any significance or potential. Laura should be getting through those matches in an hour if she's serious about getting any where near the top 100.

I can't imagine she's not miserable out there.

In the deciding set Laura won 4 out of 24 on return and even worse, only 1 out of 13 on 2nd serve. Maybe abysmal would be a better description of her ROS than not great.

Not a good day from a GB perspective. Four Brits all on court at the same time in Lexington. All four lost.

From Laura's stats I don't think she was playing terribly. But again too many double faults. And Alison Bai had a worse first serve percentage than Laura yet made fewer DFs and won 61% of her second serves. I take it from this Laura wasn't returning great.

Lloy4dAustin Lost to Alison Bai, well,interesting.
Just see no hope of her career, time to retire from tennis and hope she will get a good job and earn her living

Yes - I was looking at 3 of the top 4 seeds being British - Emily was way down the page so I didn't see the 14:00 start
