Re: Melanie Oudin

Mels could definitely make a nice little run in the USO series and maybe even take advantage of the week when almost everyone will be gone for the Olympics. Great to see her win a title. She's really deserved it for the work she's put in and hanging in there.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Amazing week for Mel

Cant believe she won her 1st WTA title after all she's been through!

Serena (22) & Venus (7)

Re: Melanie Oudin

So proud of her! First WTA title after all the ups and downs... I think I might be prouder of her for this than I was of the US Open run.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Re: Melanie Oudin

AMAZING! Never thought she would be the first Non-Williams American to win a WTA in like....forever. Amazing that she's back so soon. I almost wish they would axe Vavara out and let her be in the Olympics instead, but she also will get a nice week to get ranking points when everyone is gone.

Re: Melanie Oudin

She has a great chance to go really far at Wimbledon! Radwanska, Kvitova, and Wozniacki are all sucking as of late! Obviously if she draws Serena or Sharapova in the early rounds that won't be good but I think she can make the second week at Wimbledon again!!

(especially now that she has a week to practice and train with so much confidence)

It's great that she's taking some time off. She's got all the warm-up on grass she needs, I think. Her game requires so much energy. I want her rested, her battery recharged, before she takes the court at Wimby. With the right draw she could go far this year. I want her to have the "juice" for that kind of run. So smart from her team that they are taking that into account this year. Part of the reason she's doing better.

Remember, before the 09 run she was injured and didn't play anywhere for 2 weeks before taking the court in NYC. That gave her the energy to play her best at the big event. Doesn't need to be 2 wks, but they need to keep giving her that little break before the majors. imo

Re: Melanie Oudin

Congrats to Melanie! Did Tennis Channel ever show the AEGON Classic final where she beat Jankovic? 3 times in the past 2 days I've tuned in to see the final, but they've aired something else. They're showing the semifinal against Makarova right now.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Drew Babos in the first round! Very winnable match so I hope she is able to pull it off!

Winner will most likely get Petrova
