Laura Robson Wimbledon 2017 first round press conference

November 7, 2019

Yeah, I do feel like I let
myself down a bit out there. Just never really let myself
get into the match. Just a bit overwhelmed with nerves when
I first got out there, then tried to play too perfect when
really I didn’t need to go for so much. I think if I had won that first game
after having the two points at 40-15, then I might have relaxed a little bit.
But just the way that the match went, you know, my feet were just not
moving. She had a tricky serve that I was finding it tough to read. You know, it just kind of gets a
hold of you. Once you start trying to overhit it, try to play too perfect,
it’s tough to get out of that. It’s a different pace of ball sometimes.
It depends who you play really. At the tournaments I’ve been playing
this year, it’s definitely a good level. But there’s just that
extra bit of difference. So when you come back up to
these events, you do feel it straightaway, with the
pace of ball, I think with the opportunities that you get on
breakpoints and things like that. Yeah, you know, I’m dropping
back again after this to try and get more matches and
get my ranking up. But, yeah, it’s frustrating. For sure. I’m going to
be out in the States, so it’s not really like a
massive hardship or anything. I enjoy the tournaments and
I enjoy trying to grind through as many matches as I can,
get as many wins. To be honest, trying to get my ranking
up so that next year hopefully next year I won’t need a wild card, so I feel
like I really deserve to be here.

    Time for Laura Robson to Retire from tennis. Nice 35k for crashing out of the first round of Wimbledon.

    7th wildcard to Wimbledon. Your a fucking disgrace. She's a millionaire who doesn't give a shit about tennis. She speaks like one of the royals ffs. She doesn't listen to anyone. She plays like a moron. She clearly doesn't deserve to be at Wimbledon

  • Reply KarlMalowned32 July 3, 2017 at 9:20 pm

    She is straight garbage now. She should only be playing ITF.

    Laura Robson is a joke Wimbledon needs to STOP giving her wild cards she needs to earn her way back such a joke. The only reason she gets press because she is a white girl👎😨😨

    I would…

  • Reply jaspermatty July 3, 2017 at 11:13 pm

    she even said she doesn't feel like she deserves to be there-don't blame her because they gave her a wildcard

  • Reply Tom Deverson July 3, 2017 at 11:17 pm

    She looks like she's on drugs

  • Reply Memento Mori July 4, 2017 at 12:13 am

    She doesn't deserve a wildcard.

  • Reply Alonso Padilla July 4, 2017 at 5:03 am

    She's a very good player, but her comeback hasn't been what she expected.

  • Reply Craig Simons July 4, 2017 at 5:16 am

    Laura was honest in her appraisal of her performance and she is still young so shouldn't lose heart. If her injury problems can be overcome then she has the talent to make the top 16.

  • Reply Martin Brady July 4, 2017 at 6:19 am

    Is she launching her modeling career with that outfit?

  • Reply 166PolarBear July 4, 2017 at 6:32 am

    Just Like Gabriella Sabbatini, fit looking but shit at tennis

  • Reply Live_Wire July 4, 2017 at 9:15 am

    She kinda looks different now

  • Reply Live_Wire July 4, 2017 at 9:30 am

    She is to Wimbledon, as Alize Lim is to the French Open.

  • Reply Bora Sener July 4, 2017 at 10:05 am

    Have some humanity she had umpteen injuries/surgeries. Getting match fit and getting into the groove after that many interruptions is an almighty task. Having said that giving her a wild card was not a bright idea they as well just gave her appearance money and have someone fitter take their chance. She needs to raise her level in lesser levels of tennis before being given free pass to a major.

    Konta is the only women's Britain hope….

    Laura has developed into a very beautiful woman. Shame I can't say the same about her tennis

    She really is fucking shit. My cat would beat her in straight sets. Pathetic.

  • Reply Joe505 Mc July 4, 2017 at 9:04 pm

    "I tried to play too perfect." Yeah that was definitely the problem! If the word perfect meant the word dogshit.

    those who came here just to hate have too much time on their hands

  • Reply Andy Zhang July 10, 2017 at 10:05 am

    Several years ago she shocked the world by beating Li Na in Grand Slam. Athletes always have ups and downs, I believe she will come back in form next year. BTW, she is lovely, isn't she?

  • Reply Djadarian July 19, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    The un-evenness of her ear piercings…. like 8 in her right and 4 in her left…. looking at bit like a rockband groupie….

  • Reply Clem Fandango July 15, 2018 at 9:25 pm

    Sad.,….she was the worlds top women's teenager but those injuries have taken their toll. Wonder if she has lost her enthusiasm for the game.

  • Reply Louie M September 9, 2018 at 11:05 am

    Not actually any good at tennis, is she?

  • Reply Angela Walton January 9, 2019 at 5:42 pm

    Laura looks so nerves in this interview trying to straighten her necklace and inching her collier

  • Reply Angela Walton January 9, 2019 at 5:56 pm

  • Reply Richard Stokes September 6, 2019 at 5:37 pm

    Shows promise this player hasn't won anything in Tennis…. Stick to the Fashion Boutiques of Chelsea and donate your Racket to somebody more worthy… yet another awful Brit failure of a Tennis player……
