Lexington, 50K: FINAL: Melanie OUDIN (USA) def Carly GULLICKSON (USA)... 6/4 6/2

Nicely done MEL She seems to be about ready to put the jrs aside and turn pro sometime in the near future.

Carly << She has been playing some pretty solid ball since coming back from injury earlier in the year. Hopefully she'll play in some of the lower tier asian tourneys this fall along with Mel

Melanie is my sure pick for the US Open juniors.

I really hope she can win it and become #1, she'll have home field advantage. Her only two losses all season have been at Roland Garros and Wimbledon.

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

Pretty much.

But she's still flying a bit under the radar when compared to some of the other current top juniors.

In one of the interviews that I read, she said that since she's still 16, she doesn't get to play a lot of tournaments so she'd play junior matches to have more matches under her belt.
