Coming back from a break down in both sets is not a fluke, and she lost mini-breaks in the tie breaks too. Mentally it's helped her today too. I hope she can beat Stosur because that bitch is so up & down.
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.
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.
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.
