TENNIS: Laura Robson was knocked out of the China Open in the second round by Spain's Lourdes Dominguez Lino today.
The 18-year-old went into the match as the higher-ranked player, a rarity in her young career, but a late break in a tight first set proved crucial as her 31-year-old opponent triumphed 7-5 6-3.
Robson was broken in the very last game of the first set and suffered a break in third game of the second as she lost in an hour and 35 minutes.
