I don't think she's been hitting either. Although her exchange with Jamie Hampton on Twitter was light-hearted the meaning was clear. Jamie, who I understand has recently undergone hip surgery, is back on the practice court and is swinging her racquet at tennis balls again. Laura, by contrast, is not hitting any balls at all and is feeling ever so slightly envious of Jamie. How on earth will Laura be ready for Marrakesh? She may be wonderfully sleek and fit but she can't play tennis!

Let's stay pessimistic guys. That's what we do best in Laura's Lounge.
I'm hopelessly optimistic. Until I see she's withdrawn, as far as I'm concerned she's playing whether she's actually done any hitting or not...

P.S Even if she starts hitting tomorrow, I don't seriously expect her to win the tournament, it's just a nice idea..

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Although I don't think she'll be coming back in time to play in Marrakech, she looks really motivated and that's promising. Still a long journey to take place when it comes to her career and being away from the sport might be helpful in terms of confidence. Laura probably needs a break to forget the Chinese swing last year and playing through injury anyway!

Nah it wouldn't be that Laura knows good and bad draws happen, the break-up happened at the beginning of the off season.




Laura needs to get back and have some success so she can move on from this even if they are never friendly again. I don't think she's the jealous type but you can see how that kind of negative emotion can grow if she's sidelined for a long time and subject to the Geniemania on all the WTA channels.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Strasbourg fair enough, it's six weeks away and maybe she's being optimistic. But Morocco is next week! I don't understand why she hasn't pulled out yet.

Two weeks.

I'd expect her to pull out later this week or early next week. I see seriously can't see her coming back even Madrid/Rome.

Until she's had a good few weeks of hitting, she won't be near ready to compete.

Whoops! My mistake. Well that makes more sense, but I'm still fully expecting her to pull out.

I hope that if she's out for the entire clay court season she won't return for Wimbledon. That lack of match play added with the home pressure could be a real confidence blow. The general Wimbledon audience won't know/care she's been sidelined for 6 months, they'll still expect her to win the whole thing

I could not agree more. The backlash could ruin her. As you said the majority of the public would have no clue of her injury/lack of match play.

If she doesn't have a good set of matches under her belt before the grass then she should seriously not play. I could see her trying to tough it out by playing but it'd be a stupid decision.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I really hope she's back before RG because sponsor pressure means that unless her arm is falling off she plays Wimbledon ready or not.

A repeat of that AO match on CC the first day of Wimbledon?

Erm stop, thanks.

I hope she's sensible enough to know not to rush anything. Laura's not a top player, I don't see what sponsor pressure there is.

The notable pressure to play will be from the tabloids.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Laura has withdrawn from Marrakech, Oeiras (was MDO only) and Madrid (was top ALT).

Still listed in Rome and Strasbourg
