Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I pray to the tennis Gods (or maybe the BBC) that Laura does commentary for the Bouchard vs Sharapova/maybe Kerber but probably not match.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Anne Keothavong started her commentary career very similarly this time last year. Very softly spoken and sounded almost embarrassed to say anything without being asked. I have never heard her commentate on BT sport so this year's Wimbledon was the first time I heard her again and the transformation is remarkable. Unrecognisable to me at first.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I remember Anne being invited to do a bit of commentary by Eurosport, years ago. I think it was just after her first round double bagel drubbing by Safina at Garros, and she was so reticent and almost monosyllabic.

I think it takes a bit of time to feel at ease in that situation.

Gratuitous snark from Mac about Laura at the start of the Pilchard SF.

"Nick Saviano had a decision to make: Robson or Bouchard. Where's Laura right now?"

Wow, what a bitch. Surely coaching should be more about the challenge of making someone improve? Bouchard seems pretty self-sufficent, what's so satisfying about that?

That was John McEnroe in case it wasn't clear. Sorry.

Oh, I know you meant him. It was just a very bitchy thing to say, in my opinion.

It's McEnroe. Last week he suggested to get rid of umpires. Best to just ignore him.

He's also in favour of playing let cords on serve

Back to Laura, I can't help but think of her when I see Genie's success on the tour. I'm happy for Genie but she's baring the brunt of my frustration with just how different their year has been (unfair of me, I know). I still think Laura is a far superior talent and has more potential. Just goes to show what a solid mind set, hard work and a bit of luck can do to a player.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Well I am fan of both,but I hope Genie's success motivates Laura rather than gets her down.Make her think that if she could do it,she can too.

I really enjoy watching the 24-year-old – I commentated on her semi-final victory over fellow-Czech Lucie Šafářová on Thursday (and I’ll also be in the box for BBC Radio 5 live Live for Saturday’s match).

Laura and Genie kind of remind me Petra (lefty with big power but poor moving) and Vika (aggressive, takes the ball early but doesn't have huge power) respectively. I think Petra is a lot more talented than Vika but Vika has had a lot better career to this point.

What a stunning performance from Petra.
