Laura Robson (born 21 January 1994) is a British tennis player and an Olympic Mixed Doubles Silver Medalist
She debuted on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) junior tour in 2007, and a year later won the Wimbledon Junior Girls' Championship at the age of 14. As a junior she also twice reached the final of the girls' singles tournament at the Australian Open, in 2009 and 2010. She won her first professional tournament in November 2008.
Robson was the first British woman since Samantha Smith at Wimbledon in 1998 to reach the fourth round of a Grand Slam tournament, doing so at the 2012 US Open and the 2013 Wimbledon Championships. She won a silver medal in the mixed doubles at the 2012 London Olympics playing with Andy Murray, with whom she also reached the 2010 Hopman Cup final. At the 2012 Guangzhou Women's Open, Robson became the first British woman since Jo Durie in 1990 to reach a WTA main-tour final, where she lost to Hsieh Su-wei. Robson was named WTA Newcomer of the Year for 2012 and reached a career high singles ranking of world number 27 on 8 July 2013.
Since then, Robson has suffered from various injuries which have caused a prolonged absence from the WTA tour. After losing in the first round of the 2013 HP Open on 7 October 2013, she has played just 33 matches: two in 2014, 11 in 2015 and 20 in 2016, winning just eight of them. She dropped out of the world rankings in early 2015, returning at 906 in July 2015, and is currently ranked at 294. She has a career-high doubles ranking of number 82 and is currently ranked 305.
