Britain’s Robson reaches 4th round at Wimbledon
LONDON (AP) — Laura Robson became the first British woman since 1998 to reach the fourth round of Wimbledon, rallying from a set and a break down and gaining from a crucial overturned call to beat Marina Erakovic of New Zealand 1-6, 7-5, 6-3.
Erakovic served for the match in the second set, only for Robson to break back. Having then earned a set point at 6-5, Robson barely got a return back that looped high and just caught the edge of the line, but was called out before Erakovic could smack a winner. Robson successfully challenged the call and the point was replayed, with Erakovic double-faulting to hand her opponent the set.
Robson then jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the decider, and clinched the victory with a forehand winner.
