Laura Robson out in Wimbledon first round

ReutersBeatriz Haddad Maia Who is the Brazilian tennis player who beat Laura Robson

Broady reduced the deficit with a firm forehand volley but any hopes of a comeback were quickly dashed as Begu served out for a comfortable win.

The Brit, now ranked 189 in the world, was handed a Wimbledon wildcard only to crash out 6-4 6-2 to Beatriz Haddad Maia.

Robson dropped serve in her opening service game and Haddad Maia was able to hold relatively comfortably throughout the remainder of the first set.

"I played two challengers past year and I won two in a row", Haddad Maia said. I played very good tournaments. So I do feel like I let myself down a bit out there.

"Just a bit overwhelmed with nerves when I first got out there, then tried to play too flawless when really I didn't need to go for so much".

"I was a bit overwhelmed with nerves when I first got out there, then tried to play too flawless when really I didn't need to go for so much". It's a great span and string of results for a player who endured injury after injury as a young teenage talent, first a shoulder injury after taking a bad fall, and then herniated disks in her back that required surgery in 2012.

But the 23-year-old shrugged off the incident, even though it could have cost her the point.

"You look at Del Potro, who has now had to have this operation on both his wrists, and after the first one in 2010 it took him a long time to regain momentum on the tour", former British No 1 Annabel Croft said back in 2014.
