Robson and Coin both advance in Shrewsbury

Junior Wimbledon champion Laura Robson had to retire in the second round of her first pro tournament because of a shoulder injury. She is now entered as a wild card in a 75k tournament in Shrewsbury, and has reached the second round by defeating qualifier and countrywoman Sarah Borwell. Robson's second round will be tricky, however: She meets another junior Wimbledon champion--Urzula Radwanska.

Also entered in the tournament is Julie Coin, who took Ana Ivanovic out of the U.S. Open. Coin has also made it to the second round, and will play Tzipi Obziler in the next round.

Top seed Sofia Arvidsson was defeated in the first round.
