She's still on the $50K Atlanta entry list and the $25K Lubbock list. They're both in the same week (12-18 September), so she needs to decide which one she's playing. I'm hoping more for Atlanta now as she needs to start earning some higher points, 25Ks can only take you so far.

$75K Albuquerque entry list still hasn't been released yet. Hoping she's on there too.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

I think, it is a big sucess, that Laura was in the main daw. It was a big step in the right direction. And she plays a lot like more before the injury.

But there is still a lot of improvement and this was a good example today. First of all her return game is not very well. She is reading the services not very well and so the opponent has a advantage here. Of Course Broady has a good serve, so that this weaknesses had a bigger factor today. And if you have break points against a good service player, you need to take your chance. Her break point/break percentage was very bad today. This was not the first day.

And of course you have to get a poononet like Broady in longer baseline battles. So you have to be okay in your defense game and she is still not okay. She is still bad.

And she is to nice. Broady was in bitch mode today. She complained to the ref, she was drinking during service games. I never saw that. And Laura is standing like a young girl. Laura you has nothing to lose. You can complain, you can be angry.

And the ref was influenced by Broady. A lot of overturns from the ref all at Laura. There were a lot of very close services from Broady. N o overturn everything was good. Strange game........To nice to win, would my last statement.

so Laura keep it up. You can play fantastic tennis, believe in you.

Who knows, what is the next tournament? Any idea? news?

Broady is the worst.

Still a decent few weeks for Laura though. Very encouraging, hopefully can maintain the confidence.

She's trash. I've never liked her, she's used gamesmanship plenty of times. I really don't know how she has fans. If people are supporting her just because she's British, it's pretty sad.

Aga should deal with her nicely in the next round though.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

This loss irks me quite a bit more than anything though. Probably because I can't stand the sight of Broady.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

Broady's celebration was just how I predicted, the huge scream at the end. Laura basically gave you that game and match at 5-4. You didn't do anything special

Anyway. A lot of positive things to take from this run here.

For all the good shots I saw Laura play, to lose to Naomi on unforced errors is a bit unexpected and shows there is some way to go.

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.

This guy just defines 'epic fail'. Laura, get away from him!
