Laura Robson on song in Palermo

There was no shortage of excitement for British tennis fans during Wimbledon this year, with Andy Murray and Heather Watson putting up brave fights in the main draw (as well as Tim Henman if you count his commentary box duels with John McEnroe). However, in the following week, it’s Laura Robson who’s drawing attention, following some eye-catching performances in Palermo.

At 18-years-old, Robson has progressed to the first WTA quarter-final of her career at the XXV Italiacom Open. Having completed a 6-3, 7-5 dismissal of second seed Roberta Vinci, Robson might just be playing well enough to go on and better this feat. She’ll take on No. 5 seed Carla Suarez Navarro today for a place in the final four.

Robson has been popular with British fans ever since winning the Wimbledon juniors title in 2008 at the age of 14. The Brit is clearly a player with a lot of potential, and there will surely be many more quarter-finals for her to look forward to.
