Laura Robson: Focused on Wimbledon despite rankings rise
Laura Robson has promised not to be distracted by the promise of an improved world ranking after securing her place in the last 16 at Wimbledon.
The 19-year-old is guaranteed to move into the world's top 30 when the updated rankings are released after the tournament.
But as she prepares to face Estonia's Kaia Kanepi after defeating Marina Erakovic on Saturday, Robson insisted she is fully focused on events at SW19.
"For now I'm just focusing on playing my matches, those are the things that actually matter," she said.
"Getting in the top 30 is a good thing. Hopefully it means I'll be seeded for the US Open.
"But I don't go into the match thinking about things like that."
