Laura Robson showed that her previous wins against seeded opposition were no fluke as she nearly made it through to the quarter-finals of Wimbledon. 

People are now starting to wonder if Robson can be the next big thing.

Having spent copious amounts of money on the LTA facilities in recent years the LTA have had a lot to answer to recently with the only major success coming from Scotland in the form of Andy Murray. 

However, a shining star has emerged as Robson has gradually climbed through the ranking system to 38th seed before Wimbledon had happened. 

Robson in previous years had really struggled with her serve, the difference in Wimbledon was that she made a lot of first serves allowing her to attack her opponent and win more points easily. 

She has a strong game from the back of the court and her return especially on her forehand helped her gain break points. 

Despite being criticised for having poor lateral movement, Robson has perfect poise and technique and has a great attitude and personality which is needed as a British tennis player constantly in the limelight. 

Simon Reed, a commentator said that she 'has every tool she needs'. Former Grand Slam champion Pat Cash also lavished praise on her by calling her 'a special talent who seems to have all the attributes to progress'.

So, despite not making the quarter-finals this year, in years to come it is obvious that we will see the rise of British women's tennis player for the first time in a while.

Robson not only has the ability to be an outstanding tennis player, but she also knows how to handle the pressure as well.
