British teenager Laura Robson is disconsolate after losing a tough, 7-6 (6), 7-5, fourth-round match to Kaia Kanepi at Wimbledon and says that she put too much pressure on herself.

"I'm really, really disappointed," the 19-year-old Robson said. "I thought she played a really solid match.  She can hit the ball incredibly hard off the ground, so it was tough for me to stay in the rallies. But I had my chances here and there and I just didn't take them. I think I was putting a lot of pressure on myself."

Robson added that that the reason she left the court quickly without a signature sign-off was "because I  lost and I was just trying not to cry."
