Robson burst on to the scene by winning the Junior Wimbledon title last summer – impressing both with her mature play and personality. She also reached the girls’ final at the Australian Open in January and her promise was confirmed this week when she topped the rankings for the first time.
“I think she’s very good,” said Murray. “I think she will for sure get into the top 50 (in the senior ranks).”
He added: “After that, you don’t know. Anything can happen. I know she’s had a few problems here and there with injuries because she’s been growing a lot, which is normal around that age.
“But, I mean, she’s going to be good. It’s just you can never say how good someone is going to be. To be number one in the world, I think it’s an awesome achievement.
“For sure, in the guys, if you get to number one in the world in the juniors you’re going to be a top player pretty much.
“And the girls, if you do it when you’re 18 it’s not quite the same. She’s doing it so young – it shows she’s going to be good.”
