Mel probably scored one of the most surprising upsets ever when she beat Dani Hantuchova in 2004 in Quebec City.She also beat Els Callens and Stephanie Foretz in this tournament,before losing to Salerni.Well she had a very bad 2005 apart from a final in a 25k in Vancouver she just won 4 more matches two against WCs in a 25k Qualifying and decided not to turn pro but go to an American university and layed only two events lat year winningone match.But she was back three weeks ago to play 3 10k's in Portugal in the first one se got through qualifying beating Indian top seed Iyer in semis,before losing to Balsamo in the final.The week before she got a SE but lost to Balsamo again,in semis this time.But this week she could take the title beating Swiss player Stefania Boffa in straight sets to win her first ever ITF title she also won the Doubles tites partnering American Kady Pooler.She'll be back in Top700,she's been in Top300 before in 2005.I hope she can do great in her "comeback" :D
