Hopefully Elina overtakes her in the rankings next year
Honestly in terms of progression Elina isn't really that far behind Robson. Laura broke Top 100 and 18y4m and Elina is now 18y2m and almost Top 100
It's true Laura probably is more impressive but I don't think it's as wide of a gap as some of you are making out
She's literally not behind Robson at all in terms of progression, she's actually right on track.
Just the typical overhyped Robson fanatics, the problem is the WTA hasn't had a star young player for a while now so people are hyping Robson up as if she's the second coming of christ, but really her results at her age are nowhere near as impressive as the greats and not even impressive compared to someone like Azarenka who was just outside the top 10 at Robson's age now.
I doubt Robson will make it above #35 before her 20th birthday in 2014.
