what has not worked for the Belorussian squares --


Belorussians? You cannot lose the opening serve with the man serving,


you just cannot do that. Mirnyi played an awful game there. Laura


Robson has just continued at the way she has been playing, she has


attacked. When she is going for it, she will make some mistakes but she


puts a lot of pressure on her opponents and her first serve has


been so good. At the moment Mirnyi and Azarenka cannot get rural

Laura Robson is serving this. This is where Azarenka will expect she

So, where now fraught Robson and Murray? What should their response


be? The thing is, their opponents have both started playing better,


but they are both returning serve better, Mirnyi is the one who is


taking charge at the net, and Azarenka is solid from the baseline.


They have to keep on focusing here. This is a big game coming up. Laura


Robson has to keep going for the ball and she has been. She hasn't


been getting as many balls over, but a lot of that is the serving


from Mirnyi and at Azarenka, which has been a lot better in this said.


But it will come. Even read doesn't in this set, you have the tie-

some great tennis, and yes... Disappointed. They are such a tough
