Re: Melanie Oudin

MDWCs have helped her get to a certain ranking level again. But I think she needs the matchplay that qualies will give her to really cement herself there. I don't see it as a bad thing.

I agree. The ranking jump in 2009 pushed her out of qualifying too soon. She needed those matches to be ready for the main draw. I think her resurgence this year bares that out. Losing in the first round of Wimby might have been for the best. Let her work her way up the rankings a little slower this time.

I think ITF's and WTA tourneys have separate WC's limits. I'm pretty sure she should have 1 more WC left, maybe for the USO ? If not, then maybe she should try and play the ITF in Washington so she has a shot at the USO MD. Well, unless she's out of ITF WC's Where's Meelis when you need him

Re: Melanie Oudin

Melanie is not in the QD at the Bank of the West Classic. So did she get a MDWC or did she withdraw? Anyone know?

According to Meelis this is the main draw:
Quote:
(1)Serena Williams (USA) v BYE
(wc)Nicole Gibbs (USA) v Q
(wc)Michelle Larcher De Brito (POR) v Jarmila Gajdosova (AUS)
Q v (6)Chanelle Scheepers (RSA)

(3)Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) v BYE
Q v Q
Ayumi Morita (JPN) v Stephanie Dubois (CAN)
Vania King (USA) v (7)Petra Martic (CRO)

(8)Marina Erakovic (NZL) v Sorana Cirstea (ROU)
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) v Urszula Radwanska (POL)
Melinda Czink (HUN) v Bojana Jovanovski (SRB)
(4)Jelena Jankovic (SRB) v BYE

(5)Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) v Kai-Chen Chang (TPE)
Sloane Stephens (USA) v Heather Watson (GBR)
(wc)Mallory Burdette (USA) v Anne Keothavong (GBR)
(2)Marion Bartoli (FRA) v BYE
So, looks like she's not playing. Was she ever in the QD or was that just a guess? Could she be playing ITFs instead?

Re: Melanie Oudin

I guess she's taking another week off to rest. Hopefully we'll see her next week

My hope is that she's in NYC sharping that first serve into a razor. My fear is that she's such a genuinely nice girl that she's serving as hitting partner to help get her friend x-tina ready for the olympics. I don't know what she's doing, but Stanford was a good chance to pick up points for the USO, can't believe she didn't take it.

Update: Via twitter, Mel accepted a WC to the Citi Open 2012 WTA Singles Field So now we know

Re: Melanie Oudin

She could possibly get a Lucky Loser spot, and she also has doubles with Alexa Glatch.

Re: Melanie Oudin

I think she got the lucky loser spot because it says she plays Sloane Stephens but the draw is not showing up correctly. It is actually showing an itf draw?? Weird
