Stove, 68, famously lost to Virginia Wade in the 1977 final, which was watched by the Queen. She said Robson, who reached the fourth round on Saturday, was playing well but her money is still on Serena Williams to win this year's tournament.
Speaking as she arrived at the All England Club, the Dutch former professional said: "She could win, but maybe not this year. I think she has the makings of a champion, she is still young, she did well in the doubles, and she is playing well now."
Asked if the 19-year-old's nerves would affect her performances, she said: "The nerves always get to you, especially when you hear that 'whoosh' around the court from the British fans if she misses a shot.
"But she has been handling them well."
She added: "I still think Serena is the best woman out there, my money is on her."
