    Erakovic got incredibly unlucky with two replayed points.

    And in terms of unforced errors, I meant Robson has had more "WTF was that?" moments.

    Robson has been average at best, though.

    However, she still finds herself 4-0 up in the final set

    She's got lucky her opponent has blown it
    What's your problem..you wouldn't be saying that if it was the other way around would you? You'd be saying that Laura got lucky in the first set and the difference in quality was now coming through.

    She's winning the match now however you dress it up..stop being so bloody negative. :hmmm:

    I think Laura has got a bit lucky. She hasn't played especially well over the match (although the third set has looked pretty good), but wasn't punished for it.

    She hasn't played especially well, but neither has her opponent. Where is the luck?

    Some annoying guy keep shouting 'Come on' every time Laura wins a point. I wanna slap his face.

    Anyway, I'm happy for Laura, although she did get a bit lucky with her opponent choking whilst serving for the match.

    Let's hope she doesn't choke now...

    That her opponent is playing badly. Given her level today, surely this is clear?
    Anyways, match point...

    Robson has been embarrassing in my opinion. I know she's nervous but the number of unforced errors compared to her opponent is awful.

    About to break back though as her opponent is obviously nervous as hell on her serve.
    Perhaps, but what about the number of double faults on Erakovic's part? I don't think she's been 'embarrassing'.

    Oh Laura. :adore:

    (Yes, I know she didn't play very well, and was pitiful in the first set, but...:woo: )

    Tbf she did well in the final set. Her opponent caved in but she did well to finish her off as towards the end Erakovic started to come back into it.

    Might try to get tickets to Centre Court for Tuesday now!

    I thought so, even if I feared for her a little when she got broken back. She didn't play well, but it's still very pleasing to see her get through and overall it wasn't a bad performance - at least, I don't think so.

    Do you think that's a possibility?

    Few have took that the wrong way
    I meant that if Erakovic didn't let her performance drop, she'd have won it in straight sets - if Robson lets a better standard of opponent (Williams in QF) get that free first set then she's in trouble
    That's all I'm saying, not trying to belittle her comeback in any way

    To those who know more about tennis than I do (i.e. most) what do you think Robson's chances are of beating either Riske or Kanepi? Robson is ranked higher but I know people perform differently on different surfaces, and form coming into the tournament plays a big part, so...
