Laura Robson has said she is "really excited" about her third round match tomorrow against New Zealander Marina Erakovic.

Describing her second round victory as a "big win", the 19-year-old said:

"It was a great atmosphere out there today and the roof being closed makes it louder.

"I was kind of just feeling nervous but then I thought she is probably even more nervous because I've played on centre a couple of times before."

Robson is in action again later this afternoon when she plays a doubles match with partner Lisa Raymond.
