Re: Melanie Oudin

The iPad app schedule shows Oudin / Stephens on stadium court after Scheepers / Vanderwegh.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Mel wins 1 6, 7 6(6), 6 0

Huge hurtle for Mel to get over. Thought it was going to be another 2 set blow out loss to a friend, again. But nope, she actually found her game and played the match. Won it on the 2nd serve again, 50% or better from the 2nd set on. Kept her in it. Sloane

Now GL against U-Rad

This kid's a fighter! Didn't even realise she'd played until I saw scores this morning.

Wow. Oudin comes from a break down and saves 2MPs to win the tiebreak and force a 3rd. If Sloane had just a little of Melanie's scrap...
That's how to take advantage of an LL spot.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Lost 62 61

Lot more deuce points than the score would let on, but Mel's first serve and return game let her down. What I saw of the stats, showed her 2nd serve was good, but the first needs to be worked on. The first serve seems to be weaker now than I've ever seen it, match in and match out. Don't know what more she could do, but then, I didn't think the 2nd serve would improve as much as it has. So, maybe some hope, but it's mighty weak at the moment.
Tough loss

Re: Melanie Oudin

Weird tournament. Loses qualies, in as lucky loser. Saves match points in R1, then squished in R2.

I was so impressed with how she fought to get the win in the first match so this is a bit of a disappointment.

Also seen some talk on twitter about Mel missing direct entry for the US Open but says often the USTA gives a WC to the next American in, which would be her.

Yeah, I know. Mel defies expectations, good and bad. She was often described as "consistent" when she came on the scene in 09. There is nothing consistent about Melanie Oudin. She's the very definition of a loose cannon, an oxymoronic "aggressive counterpuncher", that's as likely to shoot from the hip as run down balls. She can beat someone in the top 10 one week and lose to someone ranked 150 the next. That's what makes her so fun. She doesn't have a bandwagon, she has a roller coaster, there are plenty of seats, but you have to hang on tight!

They'll give her entry into the USO, I don't see how they couldn't. The potential for drama is just to high . . .
