Do you mean three seeded players? unsure

Only top 10 player she has beaten is Li Na to my recollection.

But I agree with your post.

Oops. Thanks for the correction TMH

What if that combination was a fairly slow mover without any major weapons? Think

Oh if we're combining people can I combine Raonic's serve to Murray's game. I think he would pretty much win every game of tennis he ever played then :P

Did anyone see Heather Watson's match against Sharapova today? It was great. Heather fought really hard, winning the first set on the tie-break.

Sharapova had an acute case of double faultitus again. I think she was getting frustrated with Heather being so stubborn as well.

Sadly Heather lost in 3 sets, but it was a very, very long match. I think she just got tired in the end more than anything.

Yeah :P

I wouldn't really want that. But I imagine it's possible it could happen one day like that, where somebody is just impossible to beat.

I didn't see it, but reports I've seen have been full of praise for Heather.  By the way, Sharapova served an astonishing 14 DFs.

Robson is through to the 2nd round of the China Open to play a qualifier after defeating the 42 year old Kimiko Date-Krumm 6-4 6-4.

Date-Krumm is a former world no. 4, although that was back in 1995!

A couple more wins could see Laura move into the top 50.

Great news. Laura is on a run now.  Brad Gilbert predicted that Laura will end the year in the top 40. Let's see how accurate he is.

A good article on Laura potential rise up the ranking.

While her serve remains fragile, Robson has made real inroads this summer and will be keen to end the season on a high with a strong run of results in Asia.
 
Krajan recently claimed that Robson "doesn't even know herself how good she is", which is high praise indeed. Australian Paul McNamee, coach of Hsieh Su-wei, who beat Robson in the Guangzhou final at the weekend, noticed real improvements in Robson, and has labelled the Brit a "top-20 player of the future".
 
"You cannot do what she has done at 18 unless you have weapons and we can all see those," he said. "But I also give great credit to her coach. Everyone needs the right person and I believe Laura has found him."
 
Krajan appears to have found a willing and able student in Robson. Having steered Dinara Safina to the world No. 1 spot back in 2009, can he turn the former Wimbledon junior champion into a future grand slam winner?
