Re: Melanie Oudin

I feel that Mel, right now, is better on clay and grass than she is on hard courts. We'll find out on Wednesday as Cabeza-Candela has had decent clay court results.

Come on Mel!

Re: Melanie Oudin

I do too! Hope that it is sooner than later. Cabeza Candela is a better clay-courter than Mel, so I guess it's not a horrible loss.

GL in Charleston.

Re: Melanie Oudin

I don't know what it is... her game is just so up and down. Highlights from Birmingham last year showed her striking the ball/hitting through it much more cleanly like she used to. The only match I've seen her play in 2013 though practically every shot she hit was so loopy it was set right up for her opponent to kill. Her forehand has regressed so much since 2010 it's insane. I hope she can figure it out. She is still so incredibly young and this is an era in which a lot of players break through late. The potential for at the very least a solid top 50 career is there. I believe that 100%, people can call me delusional if they want.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Well, I think I'll chalk the the bagel up to adjusting to the surface. I think Mel played a good match against Hlavackova; the last match I watched. Her game was ragged, with far too many mistakes, but she played an attacking style rather than lobbing sitters into the center of the court, then getting killed. While the errors drive me crazy, I would rather she do that, then spin forehands to the service line.

It was strange the way she collapsed after Birmingham. Part of it might have just been the let down after a breakthrough, which is pretty common in tennis. But I wonder if she hasn't been hiding from the journalist spotlight that was turned onto her again after Birmingham. I can't say, but the US summer run was quite a regression from her spring '12 form.
