Struggling Robson to see specialist

February 19, 2013 15:04:04 UK

Laura Robson has revealed that she will have to see a specialist because of her troublesome chest infection.

The 19-year-old admitted after her first round defeat in the Dubai Duty Free Championships that she has been suffering with the problem for the last six months.

It was on and off since the Olympics, now it's worse.

After being beaten 6-4 2-6 7-6 by Kazakhstan's Yulia Putintseva, Robson said: "It's just something that I'm living with. I'm seeing a specialist when I get home and we will make another decision then. It was on and off since the Olympics, now it's worse."

It was the world number 43's second successive first-round defeat following her early exit in Doha last week.

Putintseva is only 18 and is ranked 101 in the world but held her nerve in the final set tie-break to seal an impressive victory.

Robson added: "I just either went for too much or too little, and I just couldn't find the right balance. I feel like I have been practising a little bit better this week and to come out on court and just feel very, very defensive the majority of the match is really disappointing."

Meanwhile, Heather Watson reached the second round in Memphis by beating another Kazakhstan player, Galina Voskoboeva 7-5 5-7 7-6.

Victoria Azarenka is 1213.00 to win the Dubai Duty Free Championships while Caroline Wozniacki can be backed at 5.00 and Sam Stosur at 1213.00.
