British number two Robson came back from one set down to win against the eight seed opponent in three sets, clinching the third 11-9 in a climactic showdown of truly epic proportions.

It was a rollercoaster match, with a massive 92 unforced errors between the two, and a whopping 30 aces in total, as the pendulum swung back and forth.

“I knew it was going to be a really tough match,” Robson said after her win.

“I was just trying to return her serves and it was very hard. But I knew once I got my returns firing a bit and I got a but more confidence in my serve, I would get myself into the match.”

Robson is now through to the third round of 2013’s first Slam, where she will face Sloane Stephens.
