Will Li Na gain revenge?
Big match 1st up on Arthur Ashe Stadium today, British teenager and 30th seed Laura Robson against 2011 French Open Winner and top 5 seed Li Na. This is a rematch from 2012 where Laura upset her Chinese opponent, having defeated Clijsters a round earlier. I was impressed by Laura in her last match with Garcia. The 1st serve and power ground strokes are very effective on these courts and we know she loves being the underdog, playing big names on big courts. There are a very doubts about her wrist injury but it didn’t seem to bother her too much so far. Li Na though is a top player and has breezed through the opening rounds. She can have off days though and can lose her concentration. I think Laura Robson is a huge price and definitely worth a £10 punt, even if she ends up losing. Should be a cracking game !
