Both Heather Watson and Laura Robson seemm to be doing good things this year. Watsons run at Wimbledon was great and Robson at the Olympics and the US Open was fantastic. Both of them could do very well. Watson gave Sharapova another good challenge too, so she's playing very well.
The hype for Robson was alwayys going to go a bit overboard once she started to make some good steady progress. She's had her injuries and is now developing her game and moving through the rankings at a good steady pace. Up to 57 is a tremendous accomplisment for her and reaching the top 50 by the end of the year is possible. She's got a great game and as it's been mentioned already, aside from a couple of players in the top ten, anyone can be beaten on any given day. I think she'll do very well in the future, but it will take two or three years for her to make that big impact many people are promising.
Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.
