Robson earns best win in two years

Laura Robson

Laura Robson first experienced problems before the 2014 season and had surgery on her left wrist

Former British number one Laura Robson has had her best win since wrist surgery two years ago.

The world number 465 beat Klara Koukalova, who is ranked 117, 6-2 6-3 in the first round of qualifying for the WTA clay court event in Stuttgart.

She returned from a 17-month lay-off in June but had a relapse and did not play until Indian Wells last month.

The 22-year-old will use her protected ranking of 58 to gain direct entry into the French Open main draw in May.
