British teenager Laura Robson reveals that she will be looking to advance past Kim Clijsters at the US Open.

Great Britain's Laura Robson has admitted that she cannot wait to face Kim Clijsters at the US Open.

Eighteen-year-old Robson set up the match with the four-time Grand Slam champion thanks to a 6-3 7-6 victory over Samantha Crawford last night.

Rather than being nervous about the match, Robson has insisted that she will be going out to beat her Belgian opponent.

"It's really exciting [to be playing Clijsters]," she told BBC Sport. "Ever since I've been on the Tour, she's always been extremely nice to me, so it's great to finally play her. But I'm looking to win."

Robson has never gone beyond round two at Flushing Meadows.
