Is glamorgan paying an obtuse tribute to the late Max Bygraves? "I wanna tell you a story". Zzzzzzz
#glamorganDon't make things up, sailed the Seven Seas? Big deal, It costs about 50p to own a property in the Canaries. Engineers who have sailed as many seas as you say you have don't drink Bucks Fizz. Most of your sentences don't make any sense. Adelaide in Australia? You'll be telling me it's the capital next and 30,000 cases doesn't equal 72,000 tinnies.
At least I got more of a cheer than Osbourne I voted for myself But there again I walked into an off licence in Adelaide Australia and asked for some beers he said how many? I said 30 thousand cases (72000 tinnies) of your finest Victoria bitter and had it delivered to my ship in a very Welsh accent, we can't all be mercenaries. PS I understand KP will have an IPL flag next year!
Excellent improvement from LR. Long may it continue and I see no reason why it should not.As she had no input into whether or not she left Australia or immigrated to the UK I think we should leave it up to her to say what nationality she 'feels' she is.@glamorgan9560...clearly you are a raging success... well done.... a bit more humility though please.
Awesome performance!! 6-4 6-4 shows some real fight there too.
Well done to Laura for the great progress she has made this year! With the help of her coaches she will continue to improve her game and move up the rankings. There is no doubt in my mind that what she has accomplished in this event is just a taste of what she will achieve in the future.
Joe, actually usually Scot and Murray have to be in the same sentence, same as Hoy, "the big Scot" , "the real McHoy" etc yet Wiggins is only ever "British". I have never heard Redgrave or Ainslee referred to as English, only British.It appears to be wrong to state someone in British colours is English but fine to say Scottish.
If Laura Robson is Australian, Mo Farah is Somalian. Funny how the definition of nationality varies depending on people's success. Don't even get me started on "the Scot" who became "the Brit" at the Olympics.
If I am ever feeling low on confidence, I just read some comments left by the general public and I am re-assured that natural selection will necessitate my success.
#71 - Laura Robson left Oz when she was 18 months old. She then spent a few years in Singapore before finally arriving in Britain at the age of six. If that isn't a naturalised Brit, what is?
Apparently Stosur is the only top woman player with a kick serve. Developing one would help Laura lot (but don't ask me to teach her,mine always goes long and travels at 20 mph)
The australians have to claim something, many of their sports have gone down the toilet in the last 10 years
In reply to anyone stating Laura Robson is Australian, I have heard her say she is British and that is the end it for me. Same as when I argue to a racist that Mo farah is British.
Robson hadn't picked up a tennis racket by the time she reached the UK, she has gone through the British tennis system and has every right to play for GB, in fact you could even say she owes it to the LTA for all the time, effort and money that they have put towards her tennis coaching.A few bitter trolls from Oz won't stop her being a proud Brit.
a great performance by the austrailian, she is sure to far in the future.
I thought she did well and am looking forward to watching her grow in confidence. She admitted herself that the previous match her hands were shaking with nerves as she was serving, once she overcomes that, i think she could go on to be amazing, its exciting....I don't get why people are so negative with theiir comments? I think maybe just jealous because of your own lack of talent.
@68/69 - I have a horrible feeling this poor soul is yet another victim of predictive text. Whoever invented this must be laughing themselves silly at the rubbish it comes out with. However, if I'm wrong @32 has got some serious problems...
Laura Robson was born in Melbourne with Australian parents and she lived here till she was 6 or 7 years old. Obviously Australian but it appears she has acquired British residency. Good luck to her.
