Robson backs out

laurarobsonEB2012Laura Robson has surprisingly withdrawn from the Ladies Doubles event at the 2013 French Open due to a back injury.

However, the British no1 is very likely to still compete in the 2013 AEGON International in her bid to warm-up for a shot at Wimbledon – where she won the Junior Championship aged 14 in 2006.

Robson was blown away by former Eastbourne champion Caroline Wozniacki in the opening round 6-3 6-2 reversal at the French Open, who then was shocked by in the second round by Serbian Bojana Jovanovski.

Robson was due to compete in Doubles with ex-world no1 Doubles ace Lisa Raymond of the United States.

But the 21-year-old Brit was advised to rest her back and is due to immediately return to London to prepare for the grass court season in England.

Robson has pencilled in to compete in the AEGON Classic at Birmingham before returning to Devonshire Park for the AEGON International ahead of The Championships at SW19.

However, following her poor performance in Paris, Robson will be fully focused on returning to her best at Wimbledon so if her back injury up she may be cautious about playing in back-to-back events at Birmingham and Eastbourne – although much will depend on her progress at the AEGON Classic before deciding whether to give the AEGON International a miss.
