Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

With that win Laura's ending the week at number 70.

She won't climb higher unless she's able to do better on serve. Seriously, I don't think her first serve percentage was above 50% at any point, and she was usually doing poorly at winning on her second serve. She could have wrapped up the first set far quicker if she'd hit more first serves or gone for more on her second.

Laura's tendency to play at the level of her opponent is rather annoying. This is pretty much the same surface she beat Kim and Na on. She'd have gotten wiped out if she played like that against them.

Oh sh. She got the win and that's all that matters- if she doesn't need to play great to get the win, what's the point in wasting energy?

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

She'd have wasted less energy by serving shorter games and not letting her back into the game from 40-0 by serving 2 double faults and dropping her second serve.

Breaking down in one game is irrelevant. She lost just 3 games in the whole match

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

BBC News channel have just done an item with Overend on Laura becoming GB no. 1. (If you'll forgive me, I think that means it must be a very slow news day, also evidenced by the England v. Australia practice T20 cricket match in front of no men and no dogs running ahead of it.)

Thing is, she was consistently making things harder for her self. Her first serve percentage in the second set was 30%, and she averaged a double fault in every service game in both sets.

Just because her opponent was worse doesn't mean Laura was playing anything resembling well.

Yeah Laura definitely wasn't serving well, but her return game was good enough to win more than half of return points. She was putting Torro-Flor under massive pressure on her own serve.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I agree the most annoying thing about Laura is the way she plays against poor opposition. The top players eat the crud fir breakfast.Hope she matures soon,preferably next match.It is said that the sign of a good player is one who wins when playing badly so who knows,maybe she's a genius

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

now Bartoli is out, laura is up against the top rated player in the competition, if she can pull this off she has a great chance of winning the tournament. IF she can beat Li Na she can beat zheng, let's hope laura is at her best tomorrow and she might have a chance of winning. Laura does have the advantage of having an extra days rest as well so that might give her the edge.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

Zheng is a better returner than Li, but her serve is MUCH more attackable. So if Laura serves well (a big if) she has a definite chance here.
