Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

This is by far the best match i've seen Laura play, even more so in my opinion than the Clijsters match.

She never let Aga play and you would have never guessed that she was even in a slump playing like this.

I think the altitude is perfect for her. Her balls were really flying today and she was so consistent at producing the big winners. Movement was very good and the courts are apparently playing perfect due to having roland garros clay there.

Just so proud of her and can't believe she's in the last 16!!!! Looking like Ivanovic next which will be tough although if Scheepers advances that could also be a nightmare for Laura. Anyway, enjoying this victory now and just so pleased for her

Honestly, I think Aga just had the wrong game plan. She tried to rally with Robson. Unless you're able to dominate those rallies, they won't end well for you. In fact, if she's playing like she did against Kim or Aga, you'll end up handing her your lunch money before heading back to the hotel to cry about the mean girl who hit you off court and then pulled your pig tails.

What I'm saying is rallying with Laura is like intentionally hitting to Graf's forehand. You could do it, but don't expect it to end well

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

Ivanovic would be ideal for Robson at the moment:
1. Loves the big names/stages
2. Robson will be able to find Ana's backhand which is awful.
3. Clay allows Robson more time on the ball.
4. Battle of the forehands
5. The only thing that could tip the odds in Ana's favour is Robson's serving which i'm quite anxious to see.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Well done Laura! Let's hope she can give Ana a run for her money; she's definitely capable of it.

Re: Laura hits the red dirt - Clay Season Cheering Thread

bloody hell, I was just about ready to give up on laura after her recent perfomances and then she pulls this out of her hat, I just hope this isn't a one time thing and she can keep this kind of performance up, hopefull this win will give her the confidence she needs to go forward. We do have to remember that radwanska had been out of the game since march so I doubt she was on tope form going into this match, still a great win for laura, hope she dosen't mess up and get knocked out now.

Well, Ana's certainly demolishing Scheepers. Laura's going to need to play damn well to beat her.
