Wimbledon's Robson faces Spaniard Lino in the US Open at Flushing Meadows
9:48am Friday 23rd August 2013 in Sport
Wimbledon's Laura Robson has been drawn against Lourdes Dominguez Lino in the first round of the US Open.
The number 31 seed, who reached the third round in America last year, will face the 32-year-old Spaniard on a date yet to be announced next week.
Lino, ranked number 53 in the world, has failed to get past the second round of any Grand Slam event in the past three years - her best performance coming at the US Open in 2010 when she reached the fourth round.
Robson, 19, had to pull out of the Rogers Cup in Toronto earlier this month with a wrist injury, but is expected to be fully fit for next week.
