Former British No. 1 Laura Robson appears to be nearing her official comeback to the WTA tour, even though she is yet to commit to a single event in 2015.
The 2013 Most Improved Player was forced onto the sidelines in January with a left wrist injury and watched her hard work and ranking deteriorate whilst other competitors rose to prominence over the year.
Robson reached a career-high of No. 27 on the tour and reached the fourth round of Wimbledon Championships, as well as the third rounds of the Australian Open the French Open and the U.S. Open.
Since she parted ways with coach Miles Maclagan in the fall of 2013 and having Nick Saviano snatched full time by Bouchard, Robson has been working with coach Mauricio Hadad, and plans to continue working with him for the foreseeable future. He previously worked with Heather Watson and works for Nick Bolletteri in Florida.
There have been whispers that Robson will return to the tour in January, a full 12 months since her last appearance on the tour. While she has not confirmed when she will be fit to return, there is a chance she may use her protected ranking to get into the Australian Open. If not, she may accept a wildcard entry in the ASB Classic.
