Laura Robson has insisted that she is not thinking about climbing up the world rankings after reaching the last 16 of Wimbledon.

The 19-year-old guaranteed herself a place in the top 30 with Saturday's victory over Marina Erakovic.

The win also saw Robson become the first British woman since 1998 to book a place in the fourth round at SW19.

"For now I'm just focusing on playing my matches, those are the things that actually matter," Sky Sports News quotes Robson as saying.

"Getting in the top 30 is a good thing. Hopefully it means I'll be seeded for the US Open, but I don't go into the match thinking about things like that."

Robson will face Estonia's Kaia Kanepi on Monday with a spot in the quarter-finals at stake.
