Robson wins her first tournament
It was a little tournament, a $10k in Sunderland, but Laura Robson can now say she has won her first professional event. This was her fifth ITF tournament. Robson, you will recall, got a wild card into Luxembourg, but lost in three sets to Iveta Benesova. The junior Wimbledon winner is currently ranked number 559 in the world.
