Jill Craybas
She could play Julie in R2 if they both win

Re: Melanie Oudin

Ooops!! Thanks for spotting that. For some reason I always get these two confused.

Yeah, it kind of bums me out she has to play Jill, since they both had such a good experience together with Fed Cup. I hope Mel beats her though.

Re: Melanie Oudin


Tough loss. I was looking on the stats and her percentages of points won on serves in the second set were atrocious. Third set was close though. She had some chances to break but just couldn't convert.

I am not 100% sure, but I would think that Mel would get a main draw wild card into Miami or Indian Wells. I believe she got a wild card into Miami last year.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Nice tourney, Melanie. Making progress.

ps, I'm pretty sure she got an Indian Wells Main Draw WC last year. She only gets 3 all year so she will want to use them wisely. I'm sure she wants to save one for US Open.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Exactly. Progress is the key thing here. The more progress she makes, the more tournaments she can enter directly. With her 1R win here, she is projected to be in the top 150 for the first time next week. She has been doing much better recently than other junior stars her age, so I'm encouraged.

I checked, and you're right. Last year she got a WC at Indian Wells and Miami. She won her 1R match at Indian Wells, but lost the 1R at Miami. It would predict that she would take a WC at Indian Wells, since she has points to defend there, and play qualifying at Miami. Save the WC for USopen
