Brilliant! Laura got off to great start racing to 5-1 I think. But Zhou obviously settled a bit and fought back. Laura plays Chang next

Good that Heather and Laura are in opposite sides of the draw!

  Anyone else pick up that Laura has the Aussie flag next her name in the Osaka Schedule? Not that I have an issue with that, as it happens, just saying.

51, are you sure?

This puts her in the top 50 already.

I might be being thick, but why is that? I know she was born there, but she's ours, Australia can't have her lol.

Hi All,

Well done to both our girls, or rather, ladies. yay

I was a bit worried when I saw the score during Heather's match on the BBC's text service, so I'm glad she got through, and chuffed that Laura is still going well.

Great stuff clap clap.

I saw a bit of twitter comment amongst tennis journos about that a couple of weeks ago. Someone joked that maybe she's British when she wins, Australian when she loses - or the other way round, can't remember!

It's just a mistake I think. As Ruthie says, Laura has made it clear that she thinks of herself as a Brit.

With journalists Laura is going to have the same sort of nonsense Andy has had to put up with. It might sound like a joke, but I wonder sometimes. God help her when she steps a toe out of line.

Ruthie's right, Laura regards herself as a Brit, and so do I.

I'm absolutely sure it was a joke TJ, I can't remember exactly who said it, but it was one of the tennis specialists who keep us informed of all the Brits' progress.

There are however the idiots on the BBC messageboard who insist that Laura's Australian, but as you said elsewhere, they're just trolls.

Well, as long as it was a joke, that's different.

The trolls on the BBC's website are vile.

I think Laura and Heather will spur each other on to great heights -  a genuinely friendly rivalry.

So wait,is Laura 51 or in the top 50?Slightly confused...still,either way,she is doing so,SO well-delighted for her!(and Heather too,she seems lovely,but I'm a bigger fan of Laura's).Hopefully she'll keep up the winning-it'd be a terrific end to the year for her,to end in the top 50 *fingers crossed*

And yeah,Ruthie,I agree completely-I think they'll definitely be spurred on by looking to the other,what with being so close in age and ranking (british rankings anyway-I know Laura's ahead of Heather now world ranking wise,I just don't know by how much).We can't know what'll happen in future,whether their abilities and successes will remain similar or whether one will outstrip the other or what,but if it continues this way it will be very interesting to see!

I also think it's lovely though,that they're able to be so friendly off-court.I know Heather was upset that Laura had been chosen to play with Andy in the Olympics ahead of her,and said so,but apart from that,off-court I've only ever seen friendship and fun between the two of them,and a great respect for the other's ability,and I think it's lovely to see.
