Very comfortable scoreline (although looks like Mel did get broken once in this match).

I really like Memphis a lot. I've played here since I was 14, starting with the U18 National Clay Courts. I think I have a lot of fans here - I saw some tonight when I played my first match. Even a few ladies told me they came through snow and sleet to see me from Mississippi... it's very exciting knowing I have support!
My trip from France was pretty good. The airplane was a bit rough for me because I was getting over a cold, but I'm learning how to deal with all of the travelling and real life on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour... it's different for me but I'm looking forward to it. I got a lot of confidence in France, too. I won five matches there, more than I've won in a while, so I feel like my game is getting better and better. I'm playing some good tennis and hope to do well here.
Today is just the first day of the blog so there's more to come! Keep reading every day - I'll keep writing and letting you know what's going on in Memphis!
