She needs the matches and confidence Maybe $25k is a bit low, but she definitely needs to hit the ITFs.

Re: Melanie Oudin takes wild card into this week's $25K Pelham Pro Circuit Challenger

I saw the thread for this ITF in the challenger forum, and the thought of this happening actually crossed my mind. Didn't think she'd actually do it for singles though.

But probably the best decision she's made in a while.

25K? That's a bit low even for Shoudin!

She needs confidence & if she's been there before, maybe knows people she's going to spend the week with, its not a bad move

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Good on her for wanting to get some match play on green clay before Charleston

If anything, wouldn't it hamper her confidence even more when she doesn't win?

Re: Melanie Oudin takes wild card into this week's $25K Pelham Pro Circuit Challenger

She needs as much practice on the dirt as she can get, because her form on the red clay last year was BAD. Not to mention that first round losses in Ponte Vedra Beach and Charleston would mean there's a small chance of her falling out of the top 100.

25K is definitely low for her, but it should mean that she's guaranteed some matches.

Re: Melanie Oudin takes wild card into this week's $25K Pelham Pro Circuit Challenger

It seems a bit ridiculous, but honestly with her record I think it's a good move - Players like Amy Frazier played 25k challengers through the years because they were close to home and meant extra match play so I don't see any harm.

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin

Groth played 25ks while she was in the top 30/40.
But no one is making fun of her Grow up people.

#2 seed is the world #76. It's not that bad.
