Laura Robson Coaches Her Coach

Laura Robson is confident, beautiful and very good at tennis, so it's no wonder the British girl has the guts to wind up her coach, Zeljko Krajan, over his bad habits! Far from turn a blind eye to Krajan's cigarette smoking, Laura revealed after her first round win at Charleston that she's trying to get him to quit.

I have a really good relationship with (him) …  But the next thing we are trying to do is get him to quit smoking. He stopped briefly for several years and then he is like yeah, ‘I can quit wherever.’ Within two weeks he was back on it and he blamed it on me, he said because my matches were so stressful that he had to keep doing it” she said.

We don't think Krajan can use Robson as an excuse for taking up smoking again... he used to coach Dinara Safina!

This isn't the first time Laura has presented her good girl side. In 2010 Laura said, “My coach knows I'm sensible. I don't like the taste of alcohol and I hate smoke. Some (girls) go to nightclubs, but I'm not interested."

We love a cheeky, healthy role model. We're rooting for Laura on this one!

Love Laura on this point! Haha, Zelkjo has always been his own man. He used to be very aggressive with Dinara Safina during coaching. Anyhow, Women's tennis blog are giving away an Emily Austin tennis necklace in celebration of their sixth birthday, so head over to http://www.womenstennisblog.com/2013/04/03/win-emily-austin-crystal-tennis-necklace/ to enter!

Miss Goody-Two-Shoes is incredibly irritating.

Glad to see this. After years of smoking myself, I wish I had someone that cared that much about me to get me to quit.
