Robson injury concern for GB

Laura Robson is an injury concern for Great Britain ahead of their Fed Cup Europe/Africa Zone Group I promotion play-off with Bulgaria on Sunday.

The 19-year-old suffered a shoulder injury during Great Britain's 2-1 victory over Hungary in Israel.

Robson came back after failing to win a game in the first set to triumph 0-6 6-2 6-1 against Greta Arn as her and Heather Watson both won their singles matches before Britain lost the dead doubles rubber in Eilat.

But she had to call on the trainer for treatment during the match, something which will be of concern to captain Judy Murray ahead of Sunday's showdown with Bulgaria.

Robson told British Tennis: "After the first set I thought, this can't get any worse. I regrouped and played better in the second and third sets."

Watson enjoyed an easier victory as she beat Timea Babos 6-3 6-2.

"I'm really pleased I played better today, especially mentally," Watson said. "I got off to a good start and even when she got back to 3-3 I kept up the pressure and the second (set) was easier.

"Very proud that we're through to tomorrow's play-offs."

Robson and Johanna Konta were unable to complete a whitewash, losing 6-4 2-6 6-2 to Reca-Luca Jani and Katalin Marosi in the doubles to leave the final match score 2-1 to Britain.
