She's such a confidence player. When playing well, she looks a world beater. But the minute her confidence dips, she looks really tentative and her play can fall apart alarmingly quickly.

Two more SPs here..

Takes the second to finally take the set. 6-4.

Fortunately Marino isn't playing well enough to beat Laura, even on one of her bad days.

I hate the ball Marino produces, she literally hits everything with spin and slice and goes for nothing, leading to long points and a bunch of errors.

Now up 6-4, 3-0 after that little wobble at the end of the first set. Playing well again.

Generally a very good performance. Started slow, slight blip trying to serve out first set, but other than that played very well.

Almost Murray-like symptoms.

GSM 6-4, 6-1. Smile

With that win she moves up 7 places to 31 in the world. If she gets a few more wins she will crack to Top 30 and perhaps get into high 20's.

Laura is a delight to listen to. Was just in studio with Sue Barker.

Talked about not knowing what to do post-match with the waving, needs her own 'thing'. Talked about the Gangnam video with Heather and Genie Bouchard and her friendship with Genie (they bunked together last year when Genie won Juniors) and talked about twitter and the One Direction fans hating on her because, uh, some of the band members tweeted her.

Must have been weird for her and Genie last year - two close friends, same age, one player in the main event whilst the other is still playing juniors. Their friendship reminds me of Andy and Novak's.
