US Open, 2010 - Other Players

Don't like Nadal's flourescent green trainers fainting and blue and taup no

Wonder what colour Andy will be wearing?  Blue maybe white maybe both????
So long as Andy isn't wearing black.  Does nothing for him - and he was wearing it earlier this year when he was playing so badly.

Robson defeats Dokic in US Open qualifying first round Thursday, August 26, 2010
 
Laura Robson has defeated former world No.4 Jelena Dokic of Australia 6-1, 6-4 to reach the second round of qualifying at the US Open in New York.

The 16 year-old dominated the match from the outset, nullifying her opponent’s serve with three breaks, on her way to winning the opening set in 23 minutes for the loss of just one game.

Dokic, a former Wimbledon semi-finalist, is currently ranked No.82 in the world and has enjoyed a recent resurgence in winning fifteen successive matches that has seen her claim three titles in the process.

However her younger opponent proved too strong on this occasion as she served eleven aces during a contest lasting exactly 1 hour. Dokic saved match point at 3-5 down but was unable to prevent Robson serving out the match, eventually winning with an ace to seal her place in the second round draw.

After the match Robson said: “I am very happy with the way that I performed today. I knew it was going to be a tough match as Jelena is a great player and has won the last three tournaments that she has played, she is also a good friend of mine. I am very pleased to be through to the second round.”

Nigel Sears, the LTA’s Head of Women’s Tennis added:  "Laura played with maturity today especially in the way that she closed out the match. It was a good win for her given the way Dokic has been playing in recent weeks."


Keep going Laura!

Katie O'Brien went out in 3 sets, the BBC teletext says it was a bad tempered match, whatever that means.

Don't think this is really a surprise, other than it is full time, as I'd have thought they suited each other, temperament wise, very well.

Robson lost 6-3 in the second. A bridge too far after a blistering start.

Baltacha is first on court 17 tommorow. Nice! No stupid staying up until a silly time.

I reckon I'll miss the first set or so as I have work.
