BRITISH tennis hopefuls Georgie Stoop and Laura Robson continue their ladies double campaign this afternoon at Wimbledon.

Stoop, from Great Chishill, and 15-year-old wonderkid Robson take on Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova and France's former world number one Amelie Mauresmo in the second round on court 12 from noon in what should be a tough encounter for the British pair.

Stoop and Robson beat fellow Brits Jade Curtis and Anna Smith in an epic first round tie on Wednesday 6-4 3-6 13-11, but both were knocked out of the ladies singles event earlier this week.
