Re: Melanie Oudin

Seems like Melanie always has terrible luck with the draws

Re: Melanie Oudin

Good win. Needs a little confidence boost going into her next match against Ula Radwanska!

Re: Melanie Oudin

Lost 16 62 16

The match was suspended in the worst place for Mel. Her best chance of breaking back was right after she was broken, so bad luck there.
At least she got something going on her first serve during the second set: she was winning 73% of her points, which is a big improvement over recent matches. She started the 3rd set strong, shame they couldn't finish it last night . Even if she lost, I think the scoreline would've been more favorable. Bad luck.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Hate to say it, but since her win at the AEGON Classic, her results have been horrible. COME ON MELANIE!

Re: Melanie Oudin

Her ascendancy from 300+ in the rankings was the easy part. Mel plays her best as an underdog. When she's not in that role she seems to lose the sharp edge to her game, and plays with less purpose. Once she falls behind on the scoreboard, she can make a valiant comeback. But doing that too often gives the other girls too much confidence, lets them get on a roll that's too hard to stop. She has to find a way to bring her 'A' game that doesn't require her to be behind on the scoreboard. I know this problem is the curse of the WTA right now, but Mel can't afford it. She needs the intangibles working to be anywhere near her best.

Re: Melanie Oudin

I just hope this doesn't become another losing spell. But Cincinnati is a new week and a new tournament, so maybe, hopefully, she can get a good draw in qualifying and make the main draw. Let's go Mel! #stillbelieve

Re: Melanie Oudin

Melanie needs to get it together. Since that AEGON win she's done nothing. She has so much talent. I hope she gets it together in time for the Open. I really think she'll benefit from playing more doubles matches.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Mel received a WC into the W&S Open QD. Her ranking is 109. The cut-off is pretty high, going to be a tough field.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Mel was drawn against the 18th seed Melinda Czink. If she wins, she will either play the 9th seed Lucie Hradecka or Casey Dellacqua. LETS GO MELANIE!

Head-2-Heads
*only WTA events(not including ITF)
vs. Czink (1st meeting)
vs. Hradecka (1st meeting)
vs. Dellacqua (1st meeting)

Re: Melanie Oudin

Not a bad draw. All 3 are winnable if she plays to good form. GL, Mel!
