Robbie fought back in the second set to force a tiebreak, only to double fault on match point to lose 61 76(5) to Karolina Pliskova from the Czech Republic.
The fantastic Australian run by Robbie was halted by a girl with a leg tattoo. Not an ankle tat, mind you. A huge tat on the outside of her thigh.
Come on. You're not gonna beat that. But good on the kid. She's played a ridiculous number of matches in a span of a month (Hopman Cup singles and doubles, AO qualifying, Senior doubles, and junior singles) and she really made a name for herself. Ain't no shame in losing to a girl who's two years older. And has a leg tat. Did I mention that?
Unfortunately she won't be staying for the men's final tomorrow. I could have really done with some Robbie in Muzz's box shots. But she'll be back for the French and Wimbledon. Good Lord, Wimbledon. Good luck with that, Robbie.
For some reason, I loved this:
Q. Send [Andy] a little message before you leave?
LAURA ROBSON: No. Depends if I'm in a good mood or not.
