Laura Robson: Comeback trail, commentary box tales, and solving tennis' problems with Clare Balding

This week, The Tennis Podcast is joined by Laura Robson, who is due to make her return to action tomorrow in Shrewsbury after 8 months on the sidelines with hip surgery.

Before commentating on a dramatic final Fed Cup rubber in Bath for BT Sport, Robson tells David Law about the emotions she has experienced while watching the British team that she hopes to be part of again, her long physical rehabilitation process, and her hopes for the future.

Recorded in the BT Sport make-up room, Robson and Law are also joined by broadcaster Clare Balding to share stories from the week in Bath, talk about the potential of rising British player Katie Boulter, and solve a few of tennis' current problems, including the creation of a combined Fed and Davis Cup played every two years ...

After the Fed Cup tie concludes, Law speaks to former World No.5 and veteran Fed Cup player Jo Durie to look back on a dramatic final rubber in which Jo Konta collapsed and still dragged herself and the British team over the finish line.

The Tennis Podcast is produced weekly throughout the year and daily at the Grand Slam tournaments, in association with Telegraph Sport.
