Robson 'excited' on facing Clijsters

Britain's Laura Robson says her second-round meeting against Kim Clijsters will be "very exciting" after winning her first-round match at the US Open on Monday.

The 18-year-old came through a tough match against American Samantha Crawford to win 6-3 7-6 (8-6), and will now face three-time US Open champion Clijsters - who is playing her final Grand Slam before retiring.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 live afterwards Robson says she would've been "fine to play another set" against Crawford, and is relishing facing Clijsters in the next round.
