That's a really encouraging result, at odds with her usual performances. Edged a tight first-set (has a horrendous TB record in 2013, although 2-2 since USO (was 2-0 until last two tournaments)), lost a close second one but then bounced back strongly to win the third at a canter.

Great result.

Tough draw in R2 though, against Tokyo runner up and 7th seed Kerber.

I think Laura will lose to Kerber, purely because Kerber is such a good defender and if Robson is not making her shots, Kerber will just frustrate Robson into error mode. Could be a VERY good match though if Kirby plays as she did in Tokyo and Robson plays well.

I really like Kerber. I keep waiting for her to make huge waves.

Just been confirmed for the Auckland WTA tournament in January before the AO. Been to the men's the following week loads of times but never been to the women's as there's never really been anyone notable come for it. Might have to get along to some this time.

Laura looks to be struggling with either a cold or some sort of infection today - definitely out of sorts.

I heard that it was said in commentary that Laura has chronic bronchitis. Not sure what that means but I remember she was doing a lot of coughing - was it earlier this year? Doha/Dubai or somewhere?

Beijing is probably the last place you want to be with that kind of problem. I really hope Laura gets some treatment/recovery.

 She's hot as hell, but where'd you see Lisicki with nothing on? In your dreams?
