Re: Melanie Oudin: Best of all of the young guns?

I thought Pavlyuchenkova was the best '91 girl until i saw Oudin beat the shit out of her the other day. I'm quite impressed with the way she plays against Dementieva. Solid serve of a "short" girl.

I presume you're taking some of the more established teenagers out of the equation.

Re: Melanie Oudin: Best of all of the young guns?

It's actually a shame she has to face elena almost right away. She could have gotten far with a different draw for sure, she's playing great. (i'm saying this because i DEMAND elena to get through this one)

And for elena, i think this is actually good. She has to face a reasonably tough opponent with big groundies before she's facing maria. Hopefully she uses this to her advantage.

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.
Intelligence Officer of the SS Dementieva

You know, I was just thinking about this very topic.

I actually think she might be. She is going to be a superb player.

I underestimated her; she is playing great!

Re: Melanie Oudin: Best of all of the young guns?

Very good game, and she's a lot prettier than what I'd thought from the pictures I'd seen. Still no prize pony, but quite pretty.

Re: Melanie Oudin: Best of all of the young guns?

She is really good! At Wimby I thought she'd just be another one with potential but unlikely to fulfill it, now I think she could be great!

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Re: Melanie Oudin: Best of all of the young guns?

When I first saw her play (a few years ago) I liked her attitude. She has the game and the mindset to be a solid top 30 player in a few years. Unfortunately, there are things she will need to fix dramatically if she ever wants to be Top 10/a slam winner.

Still, so much potential to change that and accomplish great things!
