I agree. Even in the first round against a player who hasn't won a match this year, Laura said afterwards that she was so nervous when trying to close out a set or got close to winning the match. You can#t concentrate on winning if your nerves make you frightened of losing. If she was nervous then, what is her confidence going to be like now after losing to Cornet when she could have won?
Hopefully winning a doubles match against a seeded pair will show her that she does belong in the top company.
