Robson had 47 unforced errors overall, along with just 11 winners.
“I felt something in my shoulder yesterday, but we still don’t know what it is because I haven’t had time to see the doctor or anything yet,” said a subdued Robson, who had upset 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova in a three-hour match on Thursday.
“But these things happen, and you just have to play through the pain sometimes. I thought Sloane played really well today.”
“She’s an awesome girl. She’s pretty. I mean, what more do you want?” she said. “She’s obviously a good player. We’re going to have a rivalry, all that good stuff.”
But Robson believes there will be plenty of chances for revenge.
“We’ve played each other twice in two weeks, so I can see it happening again at some point,” she said. “I’m sure I’ll play Sloane a lot in the future.”
