Wouldn't it be great if Robson goes further than Murray?!
I would lol if that happened.

No matter if she wins or loses against Stosur, Laura has had a good tournament. This is going to do her confidence a world of good.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Not really because it would mean Murray isn't getting past the Quarters most likely.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I'll tell you one thing though, Stosur will not be happy about playing her. Robson's bang in form and has absolutely nothing to lose. Stosur has such a huge problem with consistency and can become very erratic if she drops just a couple of games. Robson's hitting has been outstanding, probably more so against Clijsters, but in that final set and at the end of the second, Li was playing well and hitting some great shots too. To come through against someone that good who's been in good form and was playing well is incredible for someone that age in only her first appearance at that stage of a slam.

Her confidence is bound to be booming right now and she's showed some serious guts to come through those matches. If she can improve her first serve percentage she's got a real chance of progressing in the rankings in the next 12 months.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Had a feeling Li Na would lose and I was right. Americans are doing quite well thus far.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Her serve was a lot better today. Got the 1st serve in a lot more and won the majority of the points off her first serve. If she can keep Stosur behind the baseline and play her game than that game's there for her to win on this form.

Only 54% though. That's really low.

0-5 down in the 1st set, and a break down in the 3rd. I thought another choke was going to come in the final game. Hopefully doubles will take Slava's mind off that loss yesterday.

Well, Chelsea disapointed, but today was good for me in terms of tennis, so i'll take that.

In women's tennis, that's not bad.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Chelsea would have been better playing Tennis after all

I thought it was higher than 54% actually. She was winning most of the points off her first serves though and a lot via unreturned serves. She wasn't choking with doubles as much either.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Although i think Laura can beat Stosur, i think Stosur will do enough to win in 3 sets.
