Laura Robson admits that she is hoping to be a seed for June's Wimbledon Championships.

Great Britain's Laura Robson has revealed that she would like to be seeded for this year's Wimbledon Championships.

As it stands, the 19-year-old is ranked 43rd in the standings, which means that she would need to rise 11 more places to secure a seeded slot at London's Grand Slam event in June.

"It's very easy to play in Grand Slams when you have nothing to lose," said Robson. "I played on some of the biggest courts in the world, which is always exciting for me. But some more consistency would be great.

"I want to be seeded at a Grand Slam this year, hopefully Wimbledon. That would make my life a lot easier and I'll keep working hard to make it happen."

Robson has never gone beyond round two at SW19.
