[quote user="CROUCHING TIGER"]Benesova--Robson 1-6/6-2/6-3 [:(][/quote]


I was really sad that Laura didn't win that match, but she did play well.  Well I didn't actually see the match but from the score I think she must have played pretty well.  And for her to win the first set off a player ranked more than 500 places above her in the rankings is fantastic!!


Anyway she is still in the doubles at Luxembourg, so Goooo Laura!!! [;)]

Yeah, that's what Paul said also. At least her future looks a lot brighter then Wickmayer's, "the new Belgian hope", who did as usual...LOOSE BIG[:@]

[quote user="paul_pipkin"]I think they've reset some of these forums to delete inactive threads... Wickmayer will meet Groenefeld then Mauresmo. She has a chance to get to the quarters (where it's probably Lenochka. [:P]...)[/quote] Well, she did it again. SCHAAP knows at least what to do with his lost SHEEP[H]

U clearly don't know Miss Wickmayer. U know they don't like her very much in Belgium 'cos she adores Masha and has somewhat the same profile? She's also the "babe"-type they say 'bout her. Don't agree with that!!

Ohhh nooo I feel bad for her now - it can't be nice that people in her own country don't like her much! [:(]  Well I am glad that she adores Masha!!  Good luck to her - hope she does well!

Yeaaah... [:^)] I don't quite see the babe-factor, either. She is nice-looking, sure, but not of that sort. Oh well, I'm not convinced public adulation is all that good a thing, especially while a player is developing, y'know?


Talking about Yanina there. Now, Laura--she's only getting started. Like, now she goes back into Juniors work for awhile longer, and is thus somewhat defended from the media vultures.

[/quote] Agree, she's not Anastasia or "that sort" but she's good-looking, tall and blablabla... Mentally she's TOO busy trying to mimic those "real babes" and i'm sure it affects her when she plays. C'mon, a 5-2 u don't give away like that. Work for Schaap, lots of work[H]

Um-humh. I see. Yes, a player who has come to the game for the glam has taken a wrong turn. There are fine players who, bless their hearts, shouldn't attempt the glam-game at all--on whom it actually comes off a little creepy. Some, like Elena, can pull it off in addition to the real deal. (Ironically, it's very probably Lenochka's history of being screwed by the press that gives her the perspective to handle it.)


I mean, Yanina just turned 19, for god's sake! Schaap needs to persuade her she's gonna look as fine (likely better) in a year or two--time enough for sexploitation then.


Easier for Laura. She knows she's still a kid. Even so, I bet her folks and her agent have beat the vultures off with a stick already. [:P]

Robson wins maiden senior title
















Laura Robson
Robson does not turn 15 until 21 January 2009









British teenager Laura Robson won her
first senior title when she defeated compatriot Samantha Vickers at the
LTA women's event in Sunderland.

Robson, 14, beat the 17-year-old Vickers 6-3 6-2 in Sunday's final.

The International Tennis Federation-sanctioned event is the
lowest level in women's tennis, with a total prize fund of US$10,000.

The Junior Wimbledon champion made her WTA Tour debut last month, losing to world number 42 Iveta Benesova.

The wildcard in Luxembourg saw Robson become the
youngest Briton to play in a main tour event and earned her a first
world ranking of 550, which had slipped to 559 before her win in
Sunderland.























Robson had previously played three events on the second tier of
professional tennis in the wake of her stunning victory at the All
England Club in July.

She made her debut on the ITF circuit in France in September
and then beat three opponents to reach the semi-finals in Shrewsbury,
before losing to Germany's Angelique Kerber in the first round in
Barnstaple.

Her run in Sunderland began with a 6-3 6-3 win over 16-year-old
compatriot Stephanie Cornish, followed by a 6-3 6-3 defeat of
23-year-old Croatian Matea Mezak.

Robson then beat 20-year-old Romanian Laura-Ioana Andrei 6-7
(7-9) 6-4 7-5 in the quarter-finals, and 16-year-old fellow Briton Tara
Moore 6-3 6-3 in the last four.

Laura Robson is a doubt for Australian Open


Laura Robson's management team will take an "overly cautious" approach after the Wimbledon girls' champion tore a stomach muscle to put her place in the junior version of next month's Australian Open at Melbourne Park in doubt.


Robson, fifth in the world junior rankings, and easily the youngest in the top 25, skipped the girls' tournament at the US Open, so the Australian Open would be her first junior grand slam since her success on the All England Club grass.


The 14-year-old Londoner, who has dabbled in the senior game this year, including winning her first title at a low level and making a wild-card appearance in a main tour event in Luxembourg, sustained the injury while playing in a junior event in Florida, and had to default from her third-round match at the Orange Bowl.


Robson's agent, Abigail Tordoff of Octagon, said that her client had a slight stomach tear, and that they will ensure that she gets plenty of rest before she begins preparations for the Australian Open after Christmas.


Get well soon, Laura!
