Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Now maybe she can get the match play she needs in Eastbourne qualifying still opportunities to pick-up the points she needs.

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Oh no Mels to plunge out of Top 100 now. Ajla won through quals so was ready but Mel was not at all. Still I thought she would bring more than this to title defense. Maybe good draw at Wimbledon be just the things for her. Poor Mel all this hard work on clay now shadowed a bit over by one bad performance in the wrong tournament. I thought she had good chance against even flipkens on this grass. Oh well. On to next one.

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Ouch :-/. Hopefully she gets a good draw at Wimby so she can get some much needed big points. If not, then I guess she'll be high on the list for a USO WC

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Good tournament at Eastbourne can easily get her back in top 100. A win at Wimbledon WILL get her back into top 100.

Her ranking didn't drop off as much as I though her ranking would...

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Yeah, with a little luck, she'll be back in the top 100 before she leaves Europe. The opportunities are there.

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Not a bad draw up until the last Q rd where either Marina or Lucie would be very tough.

GL Mel!

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Puig could be tough, too. I don't know how Puig or Knapp play on grass. Hopefully Mel can build some confidence this week.

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Mel beat Knapp in Wimbledon qualies in 2009 I believe 1 & 2 so hopefully this can be another blowout

Plus I feel Knapp's game is perfect for Mel But I could be entirely wrong

Re: Mel on grass 2013!

Knapp in slump but licks balls very hard. Mel has better grass record I know she can win knapp who bashes the balls but can be dangerious if having a good day. Mel u can do this just to take you time and focus on each the matches this draw can open for you and be top 100 again for sure gL mel BELIEVE
