Dodin is vulturing, but what the hell happened to Bencic?! #7 not much more than a year ago.

R1: Marcinkevica/Robson def. [2] Kalinskaya/Kuncikova 6-3 5-7 10-7

K&K were a double break down early in the 2nd set. Laura and Diana had three match points at 5-3* but were unable to convert. They then lost the next four games and the set.

Anna and Lenka got an early lead in the match tiebreak but then Laura and Diana won six points in a row to stamp their authority on it.

I don't believe in such nonsense. Anyway, she won, albeit losing the second set. Well done Laura and best of luck for the next match.

Yes Laura was a break up at the start of the second and third sets. In fact in the 3rd she was up 2-0 40-0 and lost that game.

But from 2-3* Laura won the next four games to finish the match. Not only that but she managed to fight back from 0-40 down in the seventh game and saved six break points along the way to the finish.

So while there were some definite wobbles in the middle of the match she stayed strong at the end.

Probably best if we ignore the serve stats

Encouraging that Laura toughed this out though, even if Shinikova has been in shaky form of late. Laura has now won a match at her last 5 events - slow progress but still better than before

Pierre. Laura!! A win!

Was rolling until 6-1 2-1 when seemingly the wheels fell off and all of a sudden it was one set all.

She went down a break in the third set 3-2, which is when I thought it was over. Then Laura roared back to win 4 games in a row! Was clearly nervous serving out the match and had trouble, but got over the line in the end!

Very pleased with that. Great to see the fight. Will try and find some video of the match online if there is any.

Re: Return Winner: The Laura Robson support thread.

According to oddschecker.com, most bookies have Laura as slight favourite, which I suppose reflects the faith the gambling public still has in Laura, bless them.

Match starts in a little over an hour.

(Or two, if the start time I saw wasn't local time.)

I hope this tournament goes well for Laura. She has two players lined up whom she routined last year... Then she could get an opportunity to take on WTA level players Dodin and possibly Bencic if she makes the semifinal.

Based on her last match though, it's entirely possible she gets routined by Shinikova.
