She was in QF last year in Charleston. And she played very competitive match on clay against Dementieva in Fed Cup.

Congrats Tamira!!!!

But Oudin, omg, after last years Charleston pts fall off, she could be out of top 100, or very close!!
She needs to find an answer, and fast!

She will stay in top 100, since she loses "only" 120 points.

Umm... that was an indoor hardcourt in Birmingham, Alabama. Don't ask why I remember that (the match is indelibly imprinted in memory, with that godawful 1st set with 10 or so breaks and the second set, a bagel for Elena :tape: ).

Tamira :cheer:

Oudin's game really should excel on clay but the last time I saw her play she was trying to be super aggressive which isn't what gave her that USO run. She really should just embrace her inner pusher.

I also wonder why Clay has become her worst surface. Seems like she wouldn't be bad at it since she has the footspeed/endurance to chase a lot of shots down and hang in rallies for a while.

In that case they have a mistake on her official WTA page, since they state there that it was played on clay (indoors). http://www.wtatennis.com/page/Player/Activity/0,,12781~13174,00.html

That's right, they did. There's no way, NO WAY, we would ever choose to play a home Fed Cup or Davis Cup tie on clay.

I don't think people realize that running is different on clay and hard. You can be the quickest runner around, but if you can't slide, you won't do good on clay.
Safina's mastered movement on clay. She plays great defensive tennis there, while Wozniacki, a great mover on hardcourts, isn't really the best mover on clay. I don't think she slides all that well.

Her head is a mess. If she can sort that out she has a chance, but until then (if it ever happens) she's going nowhere.

This message board has openly cheered against Mel for losses, only scary to think how many have actually heckled her in person.

Not a Melanie fan by any stretch, but the level of ridicule she receives on this board is downright cruel.

I disagree. She deserves much more ridicule than she currently gets.

Why every time Oudin losses theres a LOL fest? It´s not like she´s a fluke. She´s not solid, that´s all.
