Serena Williams is a fan of Laura Robson

London: Wimbledon defending champion Serena Williams has revealed that she is a member of British teenager Laura Robson`s fan club, even as her desire to fight off the threat of new kids in women`s tennis grows further.

Williams is looking forward to face Britain`s new favourite in the quarterfinal, who is one of the upcoming stars to have made their presence felt at this year`s Wimbledon, adding that it would be a great opportunity for the teenager.

The American is going to face 2011 semi-finalist Sabine Lisicki in a fourth round match on Monday but said that people would love to see Laura win the tournament.

Serena added that there was a new generation coming up to take over women`s tennis and cause a shift.
