It's still a silver medal no matter what Did you see how elated Vika was when she won the gold medal in mixed?

Olympic silver is Olympic silver. It doesn´t come with an asterisk.

Typical American point of view. Only winners matter, everyone else is just a bunch of losers. There's no respect for anything below 1st place in USA.

Re: Robson on track to make £20million as management companies fight for her signatur

Silver in doubles means nothing, especially if you're playing with Murray

Good for marketability, as it was in GB. But performance wise it's not really much to speak about.

If you're taking that into account, why not Jack Sock/Melanie Oudin in USO (who actually won). Give them millions.

As I agree with you that a silver medal in mixed double is not THAT important, it's still something that she has achieved. Why are you even talking about Sloane? lol it's not Robson's fault if Americans are not as interested in their next "potential" champions as the Brits are that Robson is undeserving. Anyway, Sloane has a hell lot more to prove before making a big deal out of her SF luck in the AO. Just has Robson has alot to prove still. Sloane is as hyped if not more than Robson is at the moment lol

Re: Robson on track to make £20million as management companies fight for her signatur

The Brits like to exaggerate this ish like crazy. I remember them running a stories about "Murray, the hundert million pound man"...
Laura won't see a fraction of that if she doesn't start winning on tour on a consistent basis and stops flopping out of tournaments in her first or second match...

She's pretty, but prettier than Kournikova-me thinks not. I'm a straight female & I think most males would agree, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.....
Something about Laura's very, very dark brown eyes freak me out a bit.

Meh, her personality and intelligence are far superior to Anna who is little more than a model
