Muray backing Robson to shine
Great Britain Fed Cup captain Judy Murray has tipped Laura Robson to do some "damage" at Wimbledon this year.
The 18-year-old won the junior title at SW19 at the age of 14 in 2008 and has made the main draw for the past three years, losing in the first round in 2009 and 2010 while reaching round two last year. She was again handed a wild-card into this year's event and will play former French Open champion Francesca Schiavone in round one. The Wimbledon resident appears to have the perfect game for grass, with a big serve and heavy ground-strokes and has already taken the scalp of world number 49 Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez this summer at Eastbourne. She fell at the next hurdle on the south coast but put up a decent fight against Ekaterina Makarova of Russia before going down 6-4 7-5. Murray has kept a close eye on Robson's progress and was court side during her performances in Great Britain's Fed Cup success earlier this year, and the mother of world number four Andy feels the youngster will show here true colours this summer. "Laura will go into this year with a little bit more experience and she's playing well," she told BBC London. "She's in good condition physically and she's ready to do some damage. Over the next few months we're going to see something quite significant from her."
