Bit of a long break there between the games I think must have been a medical for someone...

6-3 6-3 for Laura. Easier than expected Now she's the fave to win it all. Let's see if she copes with this status.

Hard to say anything about this match, wish we could have seen it.

From the scoreboard, solid win!

I'll admit I've not seen Peng play post injury, but Laura should be able to attack her serve. Peng does hit hard and flat, though, and can rush players, so she won't be a push over!

These types of matches are the ones that Laura has to start winning consistently if she wants to keep moving up. She's more than capable of taking it!

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

IMO when Peng isn't injured she's a top 20 player so this will be tough....but I'm confident that Laura can get the win so long as she plays decently.

Good Luck Laura

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

What are the chances of Laura getting to either of the biggies points wise----- Japan and China ,have they done wild cards yet .I presume she can do Qualies,but if this run continues she'll be too late for Tokyo.

Her management company run the Tokyo tournament and she has had a main draw WC that last two years so there is a reasonable chance.

Great win for Laura. She's clearly playing well but too soon to call her the favorite for the title. There's still five seeds left in the draw.

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I don't believe Laura can take a wild card without forfeiting any points gained as unfortunately she has already used all three of her permitted MD WC's at WTA events (incl. GS's) for this year at Wimbledon, Bastad and New Haven, (p58 of tour rules).
So i believe she would have to qualify for both Tokyo and Beijing, she is just inside the MD cut off for Osaka btw. If she were to lose her match later today i would expect she would be scheduled late on court Friday in Tokyo. Her 1st round Q match can be postponed until the second day of qualifying as permitted in the tour rules for Premier events so were she to lose in the semi she can play 1R Q on Saturday. Were she to get to the final she will have earned herself a few days holiday i guess!
So happy after her win today. Night match back on Centre up against a home player again so should be a crowd in, i think this really suits Laura, she seems able to produce more consistently the bigger the occasion.
