Laura Robson loses at Wimbledon

Laura Robson

Laura Robson made an amazing start to her first senior match at Wimbledon, but couldn't take victory.

The 2008 girl's champion was playing Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova in the first round, and took the first set with some powerful serves.

But after that more mistakes started to creep into her game, and she eventually lost 3-6 6-4 6-2.

At 15, Laura Robson is the youngest Brit to ever play in the adult's competition at Wimbledon.

Strong serves

Laura Robson put in some amazing play, but her serves, which had been so strong at first, were what let her down.

She gave away several points due to double faults, and it was a double fault on match point that cost her victory.

But it was still an impressive performance, and lots of people expect her to come back next year and do well.
