image for Wimbledon 2013: Laura Robson To Have Two Hillocks Named After Her
The Two Hillocks

Laura Robson, the British tennis start who stunneded 10th seed Maria Kirilenko to reach the second round of Wimbledon 2013, is to follow in the footsteps of previous British tennis 'greats' Tim Henman and Andy Murray, and, in time-honoured fashion, have part of the surrounding landscape named after her.

The 19-year-old will have two nearby hillocks designated 'hers', and will now be known as Laura "Two Hillocks" Robson.

Laura, ranked 38 in the world, played superbly to win 6-3 6-4, ensuring that Murray will not be the only Briton in round two.

She told a delighted throng of reporters, including a bevy from The Sun Page 3 crew:

"I feel wonderful! It's so great to receive the recognition I deserve after I've worked so hard to get where I am. And to have those two hillocks named after me neans everything! Well, something."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
