Laura Robson has said that she was very nervous while watching the Wimbledon Championships final which was eventually won by her compatriot Andy Murray.
With that win, Murray ended the 77-year long wait of the British tennis fans. The whole of Britain was thrilled after his win and so was Robson.
Robson was in her house at London watching the match on television and she was feeling the pressure perhaps more than Murray. She was glued to the television and was so nervous that her palms had got sweaty. She wanted to send her friends a few texts, but, she couldn’t do that because of those sweaty palms.
Finally, when Murray won the contest, she was relieved. She was jumping in joy in her room.
In one of her recent interviews, Robson said, “I will never forget that day. I was watching the action on TV in my living room and I was feeling nervous. I was biting my nails.”
“It felt so good when Andy finally did it. It was a great moment for entire Britain. We waited for a long time for it to happen.”
“Djokovic is a very dangerous player and he can turn things around from any situation.”
“I wanted him to serve badly and commit a number of unforced mistakes. I know it doesn’t sound that good, but, that’s what I was hoping for that day.”
Robson is currently in USA taking part in the Southern California Open. She made her way into the second round of the tournament on Tuesday by defeating Ayumi Morita of Japan by 4-6, 7-5, 6-2.
When asked about that win, she said, “It’s nice to begin on a winning note after having a bit of a break. I didn’t have the perfect start, but, I pulled it back.”
