:lol: yeah loving the thread title, let's hope she stays fit and we can get some good tennis in before the end of the season. It's been too quiet since Wimby.

This is the part of the season where she really has to play well. She's got a lot of points to defend, and being seeded for Aus would definitely help her.

*GIFs added. :p

Agreed. 380pts in total to defend. Without those points she could be around #50-60 :unsure:

She really needs some consistency during this part of the season. Winning one match per tournament isn't going to help. A QF round would be a start. She's the only player in the Top 40 not to have made a QF this year so far. :help:

Her main focus next year should be being seeded in all the GS and pushing for a Top 20 ranking.

It's time to get her game up the next level. We know she has the potential but it's about putting all the pieces together. (and staying injury free)

Loving the GIFs btw.

What, did you expect Laura to make finishing in the top 30 easy on herself? Have you not been paying attention?

Laura has a real chance at taking the title at Guangzhou, she's the third seed which and there is no one there she isn't capable of beating. she came close last year, can she do one better this year?

She is down for Tokyo according to the website and the entry list here. Expect she'll play Asia and be done for the season.

She really should try to at least play Linz, Luxembourg. Didn't she finish her season at Beijing last year????

KeysisGOAT Sep 11th, 2013 03:34 PM

Re: OPPA GANGNAM STYLE! - Asian Hardcourt Swing Cheering Thread
 
Yeah, but I seem to remember her having a shoulder injury at the time too.

No, she finished season with a QF in Osaka last year. She's really going to have to produce some big results to keep her inside the Top 40 if she's only playing 3 tourneys. Two of which have such a strong field. (Tokyo and Beijing - Top players galore)

I'm still surprised she hasn't entered for Osaka...

Should have entered Linz and Luxembourg too. Just in case.

But I'm sure her and Miles thought it was best not to aggravate the wrist too much.

Draw is out:

[3] Laura Robson vs. [Q]
[WC] Zheng Saisai vs. [Q]
Yaroslava Shvedova vs. Zheng Jie
Timea Babos vs. [7] Varvara Lepchenko

Very nice draw 2 qualifiers or a qualifier and a WC to reach the QFs, would be a very bad tournament if she doesn't get there. Most of the qualifiers are young up and comers though so could be trickier than expected matches I guess. And a good chance of the semi's although Lepchenko could be tricky. Hopefully what Laura needs to start getting on a run and picking up some points with all those to defend.

Qualifiers are:
N Kichenok
Kumkhum
King
Jaksic
Hogenkamp
and a certain J. Konta
