Re: Melanie Oudin

0-6, 1-6 loss to Ivanovic. Expected. Out of Top 100. Absolutely horrible.
Maybe now, with absolutely no expectations on her, and nobody expecting her to do anything, she can figure something out and how to win a tennis match.
I feel bad about the attitude towards USA players right now, but geez, this is pathetic....

Re: Melanie Oudin

Well, I am not her fan, but i wonder: WTF happened to Oudin´s forehand? It used to be a decent shot and she was able to hit quite a few winners from that side. Now she has absolutely no power at all on her forehand? How on earth can someone´s forehand (and serve and backhand and ... well, everything) regress so much in such a short time (one year and half)?

Re: Melanie Oudin

Absolutely pathetic. Hopefully this will be the wakeup call she needs to get some new direction for her career.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Mel I can't help but wonder if she's still suffering from the injury she had in May? In any case, hopefully this is the wake up call she needs. Sort of like when an alcoholic hits rock bottom

Re: Melanie Oudin

By the way, out of her seven sets that she played at grandslam tournaments this year, she lost 1:6 three times, 0:6 two times and 2:6 one time. Pretty bad record.

Re: Melanie Oudin

I think most people here don't realize Ana played a very good match and Mel is not the player she was 2 years ago due to many reasons. I wish people in GM who criticize her so harshly would submit themselves to WTA/ATP and try to live the live of a tennis player, and see how good they can get.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Of course I was cheering for Ana the whole time but I wanted to be a little bit closer... Melanie what the fuck? You played like a recreational player. A pusher who hits a bunch errors. Come on Mel get a coach and pick up your career.

Still riding that Ivanovic coaster

Yes, but lets not delude ourselves, we're not just talking about one match. It's a string of bad results and this just caps it off. I was looking forward to the grass season after the clay as I thought that would be where Mel's season got going again.

I don't know what the root cause of the problem is but she needs to have a long, hard think about whether to make changes.

I was there on Tuesday and really hoping to get on that court to see the match. As it happened, because the match went on so late it was one of the only courts with play still going so there was a huge queue to get on. So I ended up just watching a couple of games from the top of Court 3. Tried to take some photos too but it was very far away! From what I saw, Ana was absolutely destroying Mel's second serve. Didn't look pretty.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Lost first set 6-0 on third set point!

Under 20 minutes...I do not like their double pairing as the total games won in the first for both of them was 4
