Rockin' Robin Anderson

I've been a fan of Robin's for a while now and wished she had a thread for her fans to post in, but now that she's in the final in that French 60K (I'm too lazy to spell out its name ), here goes.

Good luck to Robin tomorrow and for the rest of her career!

For those who don't know anything about her, she's 25 years old, turning 26 in a couple of weeks; she's a UCLA grad who was a 3-time All-American on the tennis team; she's tiny (5'3" in US measurements), and she's a big fan of Justine Henin . Here's an article from 2015 when she was graduating from UCLA:

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

(if she already has a fan thread and I just didn't find it, let me know and I'll close this one)

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Welcome back to the Top 200 Robin!

A win tomorrow will put her past her previous CHR of #183. 😎

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Wow, I hope she won't be playing at the 25K level for too long. But of course it makes sense to stay in the general area of W. Europe for the tme being, and this is what's available. Can't have everything!

Actually, I'm a bit surprised the success she had in college hasn't yet materialized at the pro level, as she practically owned Gibbs and was ahead of both Ahn and Brady. I think Chanelle is still playing so that's practically 3 from that Bruin line-up.

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Robin faced a whole other level of opponent in today's final, Diatchenko, and she was crushed like a bug in just over an hour. Still a good experience for her; that's the kind of player she's going to have to learn to beat if she wants to get to the next level. Anyway, great week for her even if today wasn't her day.

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Nice week for Robin!
She was in the bubble zone for FO qualies... but this week has placed her nicely inside.
Good luck in Great Britain the next few weeks!

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Catching up: Robin has been in Britain playing a couple of 25Ks, but, sadly, she ended up retiring last week in the Sunderland SFs while leading 62 12. She apparently planned to come back to the US for Charlottesville this week but withdrew this week. She is still listed for the Charleston 100K the following week, so I hope that means she'll be healed by then from whatever caused her match retirement and her C'ville withdrawal. Such bad timing for an injury, right when she has worked her way back to the top 200!



Rest up and come back strong, kid.

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Robin won the first match she's played since her retirement in the Sunderland SFs, knocking out a qualifier in R1 of the Charleston 100K, 64 63. She won all her service games; not bad! So glad she's back, and I hope she can do some damage here.

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Update: Robin lost in R2 to Gibbsy (who lost to Juvan, who lost to Osuigwe ). She didn't enter doubles here. But at least she got two matches in on clay. On to the next 100k, Bonita Springs.

Re: Rockin' Robin Anderson

Just found out that Robin came from behind to beat 3rd seeded Gibbsy! I hadn't seen the scoreboard since some time in the 2nd set; RA ended up with an unexpected 26 64 61 win. Roll on, Robin, roll on.

Through to Q2 in RG. I didn't even know she was there!
