Britain has a new sporting hope in the form of 14-year-old tennis player Laura Robson. This year she became the first female British player to have reached a junior singles final at The Junior Championships since Annabel Croft in 1984.

Clare Balding talks to Annabel Croft, her daughter Amber and also to sports psychologist Dr Chris Harwood from Loughborough University.
