Re: Melanie Oudin
They seem to be trying to make her into the retriever she never was. Every time these announcers describe Mel's game, she's a "consistent player" who "waits for her opponents' errors". Have they never seen her play? She often hits more errors and winners than the people she plays. But, she's been playing this god-awful "ball machine" game since she returned from England, setting her opponents up to blast winners, then trying run down a perfectly struck ball. I don't see the point in any of this. It's not how she got back into the top 100. It's not how she won Birmingham. She needed help getting her head together, changing her forehand, changing her game, I don't see how they're making things better.
