Melanie Oudin 14:59

Her 15 minutes of fame is up. She has not done anything since US Open.

I am afraid she is now joining: Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Karolina Sprem, Agnes Szavay, Sesil Karatantcheva, Tamira Paszek, and on and on, in the category of "another false rising star bites the dust".

She played 3 events afterwards and has had the flu.

But she certainly didn't have the flu all indoor season? Carolina Wozniacki had injuries since USO but played all the way to the end of YEC. What I saw in Oudin was that she was basking in the glory of her US Open publicity and has not steped up her effort to actually live up to the hype.

She could easily be ranked in the top 32 by the time Wimbledon comes around, so she could see some pretty nice looking draws.

I think people are way too quick to write her off. Oudin has a different mentality than any of the players the original poster mentioned, which sets her apart from them. Also, some of those players had pretty significant events factoring in their failures to live up to their potential.

Do you happen to realize its been at least two years since the named player have had their one great result, while for Mel it's been like less than 2 months?

Re: Melanie Oudin 14:59

She has things to work on, but what young player does not? Es un poco temprano... I don't think she is a top winner though.
