Wimbledon day 1

23 06 2009

The match of the day for me was between 15y old British hope Laura Robson and Daniela Hantuchova, a former top 5 player. While people expected Robson to be nervous at the start and having problems with her game as a result, this did not happen at all. She came out firing and clearly silenced all the doubters. Hantuchova seemed like the inexperienced one while displaying jittery and nervous behavior. But after being a set(6-3) and a break up in the second set, Robson started to make more errors and Hantuchova showed why she still us a top 50 player. Double faults from Robson’s side handed Hantuchova both the second and the third set and thus the match ( 6-3 4-6, 2-6). Robson is a huge talent though who will make some headlines at Wimbledon again in the next couple years. and Hantuchova has to improve her serve is she want to have a chance at reaching the second week here.
