Laura Robson reaches first WTA semi-final in Palermo

Just a quick note to say what a great achievement from Laura Robson to make her first ever WTA semi-final this week on the clay in Palermo.  She defeated the world number 27, Roberta Vinci in the second round and backed that up with a tough win over Carla Suarez Navarro, 6-4 2-6 6-3.  She now takes on Barbara Zahlavova Strycova in the semi-finals, which is a hugely winnable match! It is great to see her winning against some extremely competent clay courters and that she has been able to close out these matches as I have questioned the mental side to her game… hopefully Laura can keep winning 🙂

My predictions this week have been a mixed bunch, but there has been at least once success story… I managed to correctly predict all four semi-finalists in Stuttgart! The rest of the tournaments I won’t mention 😉
