Laura Robson

Whatever way you want to look at it, failing to hold serve four times in a row is falling apart.

Laura to serve at 2-0.

Ivanoic is practically standing at the T to return at the deuce court, Laura could take a bit of speed off it and go out wide.

See I like that she's trying to go out wide there, but if she just takes a bit of speed off it and makes it more consistent I think it would work out.

Serve getting absolutely pulverised.

Awful game to lose from 40-15.

She needs a coach there to help her, although she should be able to work it out herself. If she could just get the flat serve working, even at a lower speed it would do her so much good.

It's by far her biggest weakness. Sort that out (and that's easier said than done), and she could go all the way to the top 10, maybe top 5.

There's four main things she needs to improve: her flat serve (which is by far the most important), her court speed, her return percentage and her defence off fast balls (which is another main thing).

Laura's 2nd serve is always going to be a weakness, the way Andy deals with it is by being amazing at defending those fast hard returns back which if Laura could improve on; it would help patch that weakness in her game.

That's it!! that's what i've been wanting her to do, that serve.. just slowed it down a little Smile

Ivanovic was moving way too far over, that slow serve out wide aced her - I'm glad Laura seemed to work it out just in time.

A love hold and she's one game away. Could really do with a break to seal it.

I think (hope) she might be able to serve it out now. Let's see if she does that flat serve again.
