Remember when Oudin crushed Nastya in R1 USO 09? Nastya is so much better now.

Pav tried to choke her 5-3 lead in the second but Oudin wouldn't let her :lol:

Mel :sad: That's three comebacks blown this year. Really close there. I feel like this tight loss might give her some confidence going into the IW, Miami swing. I'm hoping at least.

Not worse. Just less confident. I actually think in terms of all around gameplay, she is a more complete. She actually was hitting solid backhands out there. No slices. The serve just needs an overhaul.

But if you notice, she got really tight in big moments and made easy errors. Also just spun a first serve in on match point. She needs to go back to going for her shots in the big moments.

Does Melanie Oudin still play tennis? :eek: I haven't heard about her in months.

Well done Pavalova! Bad luck M.o(e) hopefully you can inspire your home fans soon!

caught the 2nd set. Neither player was impressive tonight :tape: :o Oudin is still in horrible form, while Pavlyuchenkova is still slow and careless at times with her shot selection.

No she definitely got worse overall. She actually looked like a WTA player back then. In 09 Wimbledon-US Open her serve/forehand was a lot better, her slices were decent. Now it does absolutely nothing against anyone.

Ummm I've never heard of a loss giving someone confidence :unsure: especially against someone you had hammered in the only previous match-up.

I like Oudin. A lot. But there's no point trying to make excuses anymore :o maybe she will find her form, many players have managed to achieve similar feats, but her results have been so shittastic for so long now there's no point waiting for it anymore and I'm looking towards other players now. At this point, even if she does find some form I don't see Melanie being better than someone like Vesnina.

Or Mel has gone somewhat downhill since then? And it was a 5-2 lead ;)

Well I mean, I was thinking it would give her some confidence too. She hasn't had the best results as of late and this tight loss to a top 20 player is good for her IMO.

USO 2009 maybe Nastya's the worst moment in her career.Normal-Nastya will beat Normal-Melanie for sure.

Pav has the potential to become a great player and I sometimes wonder why she can't play as well as it is expected from here.

Oudin has turned out to be a big upset recently. I hope this would the year of her comeback too.

I agree. Oudin's FH was once almost a weapon, now it's both harmless and unreliable.

Looks like Melanie 2009 Wimbledon and United States Open runs may have been a fluke but time will tell.

Well done Nastya, still a bit rusty but better than 1R :) And a nice revenge after the US Open loss. GL in QFs.
