Rising Star Laura Robson pulls Double Duty
Wilson Rising Star Laura Robson is through to the quarterfinals of the Australian Open Women’s Doubles draw with partner Peers.
It’s been a busy tournament thus far for the 16 year old Robson.
Eight days ago, she reached the second round of qualifying of the Women’s Singles before falling to Krajicek.
Robson will now pull double duty as she will compete in the Australian Open Girls Singles and look to continue her run in the Women’s Doubles draw.
Using her Wilson Blade 98 racket, Laura Robson and Peers defeated #12 seed Chuang/Peschke en route to the quarterfinals and will now take on the winner of 3rd seeds Martinez Sanchez /Llagostera Vives or 14th seeds Kirilenko/Radwanska.
“This is a great start to the year for Laura,” says Renaud Vallon, Wilson Tour Manager Europe. “She is beginning to tap into her potential and we look forward to watching her continue to make her way atop the WTA Tour ranks.”
