There's some audio of Laura's presser on No Challenges Remaining podcast Ep 164 at 35:00 if anyone wants a listen.

Sounds like her conjunctivitis was really bad. Lucky it cleared up in time.

I'm dying at Eisenbud telling her she had no chance for the QWC, then she gets a call to come to NY for qualifying.

Few photos in her instagram



"I've had so many pictures of their sunset cruises and they have been tagging me in their Instagram as if I'm still part of the group," Robson said.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

I don't think there's any major hype really. Just encouraging news of her sudden improvement in results. Laura will be going into that match as an underdog, she knows she has to prove herself and she won't take Naomi lightly. Laura is way past letting any hype get to her head at this stage in her career, she has a completely different mindset when approaching matches now. The fact Naomi is a fellow Brit ranked higher than her, will make give her want this win even more.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

I'm a little worried by the hype Laura Q-ing has creating, I can see this setting her up for a big fall, as flawed as Naomi is, she's a fair step up from anything Laura has faced on her streak.

I pray that I am proven wrong and Laura wipes the floor with Naomi. I love all the British girls but Laura is bae.

I would think Naomi would be on her best behaviour and TBH, she is probably very aware of the ball toss issues in comaprison to some other WTA players.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

So, I've finally gotten around to updating the OP. Laura's ITF win is up, along with the fact that she fought through qualies this week. Hopefully that list will get a lot longer <3
