Laura Robson stands one win away from the U. Dylan Remick Seattle Sounders Jersey .S. Open main draw after edging out Bulgarias Isabella Shinikova 6-4, 6-4 in the second round of qualifying.Robsons career has been derailed by injury over the last two years but her recent revival continued in New York as she battled her way to victory against the dangerous Shinikova.It means Robson has recorded seven wins on the bounce after winning an ITF event in Landisville earlier this month and she will now face either Germanys Tatjana Maria or Turkeys Ipek Soylu for a place in the first round.Robson has endured an inconsistent year against a variety of lowly-ranked opponents but, during a late match at Flushing Meadows on a sparsely attended Court 8, there were some encouraging signs for the 22-year-old, now ranked 247th in the world.I feel really healthy, quite fit, today was a long day as well as yesterday but Ive dealt with it well, Robson told the Press Association.Ive been here a couple of times before in the last rounds of qualifying and had two awful matches but to be honest, I didnt even know if I was going to play this tournament so to be where I am now feels great and Im definitely pumped for tomorrow.Lengthy rain delays throughout the evening meant the contest started under floodlights at 10 p.m. local time but that did not stop Dan Evans, the British No. 2, turning out to support in the crowd.Evans had also watched on as Robson won her opening round on Wednesday and he stayed for the whole one hour and 19 minutes, with the match ending at just before 11.30 p.m.The late matches seem to be working for me, Robson said. I cant believe Evo came back, weve got a really good group of support going. Hes like a lucky charm - although dont tell him that.Few players can match Robsons superb ball-striking from the back but Shinikova gave it a good go, regularly unleashing a rasping forehand that often caught the Briton by surprise.While the quality was high in the rallies, however, both players struggled terribly with their serve and by the end of the 20 games played, there had been a total of 14 breaks.Robson conceded six of them - three consecutively due to double faults in the second set - but her return and blistering forehand ultimately proved too strong for her opponent, who was in tears as she left the court.My serve has always been a bit iffy, its something I just learn to cope with, Robson said.She was really tough to play against because she completely ripped the ball and sometimes I didnt even see it, I just had to get a racket on it.But I knew she would also be quite inconsistent so I just had to stick with her service games and try to hold my own as well. Im really happy with the win.Robsons compatriot Tara Moore saw her hopes of reaching the main draw ended as the British number four earlier lost to Germanys Antonia Lottner.Moore cruised through the first set but an untimely rain break, lasting around 45 minutes, flipped the momentum as Lottner came back to win 1-6,6-3, 6-2. Michael Farfan Jersey . Vettel was 0.168 seconds faster than Red Bull teammate Mark Webber around the Suzuka circuit. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg was two tenths of a second off Vettel. "The car balance is decent, but I think we can still improve," Vettel said. Damion Lowe Jersey .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. http:///...tle-sounders-jersey/ . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season.
