Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Kat is the better singles player than her sister, but still expect Laura to win in 2 easy sets.. actually she shouldn't be even close anywhere to losing tomorrow.

I dare say the last time Laura faced twins in successive rounds it was the Pliskies in the SF and F of the AO juniors. I don't think Kat will do what Karo did.
Yes, that is correct.

Also Priscilla went out today. She has a good chance to qualify..i.e if there's any hope she really should qualify...

That's a given. Her opponent is a doubles specialist (ranked in the 500s) with no singles ranking and seems to have played only a handful of ITF singles matches in her career so it ought to have been straightforward. At least Laura's 5 DFs wasn't too bad (her opponent had 9). As you say, at least she's through to the next round.

yup, it is possible.

I also agree US open qualifying looks unlikely at present. There's also no US ITF tournaments around that time, so she will have to try else where if she wants to carry on playing.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Laura is the no.1 seed in Lexington qualifying...

Laura Robson (1) vs Alexander Facey
Caroline Romeo vs Kat Facey

Madeline Kobelt vs Sabrina Santamaria
Alison Bai vs Priscilla Hon (6)

Surely, she can make it three wins in a row with this draw??? The biggest threat is obviously Priscilla. At the very least she should win her first round match.. Come on Laura!

Tara Moore was her pigeon and losing so close to her must really hurt.

2008 6-3 6-3
2010 7-5 6-1
2011 6-1 6-1

This is a girl she had no problems beating pre-wrist. I'm not surprised she withdrew from doubles, I think she took the loss very hard.

It's horrible how an injury can completely shatter an athlete mentally, to where she has no belief in her abilities any longer.

^ Thanks. Let's hope neither is injured.

No word from either as of yet but neither have pulled out of Lexington yet.

She's in qualifying for the $50K Lexington next week.

US Open qualifying is looking more and more less likely now.
