Biography

Earning prize money of more than $1.5m during her career, Laura won her first professional tournament in 2008 and reached the final of the girls’ singles tournament at the Australian Open in the two following years. She also reached the 2010 Hopman Cup final, again doubling up with Andy Murray. Widely regarded as one of Britain’s biggest female talents of the modern era, Robson has spent the majority of her career in the media. This has led to her becoming an expert in how to deal with being under the spotlight.

Having ranked one year as highly as 27th in the world, the Olympic speaker was voted as the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) newcomer of the year in 2012. In the same year, she became the first British woman in 22 years to reach a WTA major final, this time the Guangzhou Women’s Open. Having achieved goals throughout her career, reaching her first WTA major final was a huge stepping stone in Robson’s career and allowed her to strive for further success. The year was a good one for Laura because she also reached the fourth round of the 2012 US Open and the following year she reached the same stage at Wimbledon.

As a speaker, Laura Robson is able to call on her experiences of playing in some of the biggest sports tournaments in the world and competing against some of the most successful tennis players of all time. The confidence that has enabled Laura to reach such dizzy heights is all too evident when she delivers her talk to audiences who greatly appreciate her charm and her professionalism. Robson often discusses the drive and determination required to perform at an elite level throughout your career.
