She also revealed that Harry Styles isn't her only celebrity fan.

She added: "Wayne Rooney tweeted me during the US Open but he got my name wrong. He called me Robinson.

"But, then, he's Wayne Rooney so I forgave him."

Laura reached the third round for the first time yesterday with a straight sets win over Mariana Duque-Marino.

We're backing her all the way! Go Laura!
