I do respect her, but she's challenger level.

Melanie was always a streaky player..the streak of disastrous losses is over, now it's winning Melanie, it just shows how much of her disastrous form has been in the mind. Her last 16 Wimbledon performance where she first really burst on the scene followed an embarrassing performance in Roland Garros qualifying where she won one game from Ondraskova.....

Well not that surprising. Oudin had gotten incredibly overweight and with her body measurements you cannot play professional tennis out of shape. She is finally getting fitter again (I assume), receiving professional training with the US team and has probably gotten over that mofo mentally. She is simply better than #300 in the world, when fully fit and committed. Even Falconi is better than that, and Oudin is much better than her.

With better mentality and more solid game,
she can be easily Top 100.
She has such a good counterpunch-game.
It would be nice to see her back in Top 80 again.

All of this.

I suppose she played a lot on green clay during her formative years - maybe that's playing a part, too?

More of a aggressive grinder. Prime Oudin was something of a poor man's Scrubulkova - one must remember though that this was all before Krajan made Scrubulkova into an all-out basher.

Yes, she played a bit like early Cibulkova of 2008-2010 (before Krajan) but she was also able to turn around a point against aggressive players like Sharapova, Dementieva, Petrova - the 3 russians she was able to beat at USO 2009.

I wouldn't compare Mixed Doubles to Singles but give 20-years old Melanie credit for her 2009 and 2010 season: At 17, Melanie Oudin was the youngest women since Serena Williams in 1999 to reach a QF (L to Caroline Wozniacki at US Open 2009 in straight sets) at a major.

Both Heather Watson & Petra Rampre have a long way to go to achieve Melanie's credentials!

Uhh... last 17 year old to make it to the QF at a major yes... but certainly not the youngest.

Infact Melanie was 17, a few weeks shy of turning 18.

If were talking since 2000, Maria reached a QF at RG when she just turned 17 in 2004. Nicole Vaidisova reached two SF at 17, the first at RG 2006 as well when she was 16 just the month before. But the title belongs to Sesil Karantacheva who reached a QF at 15 at the French Open in 2005. :)

I stand corrected (Nicole Vaidišová (http://www.wtatennis.com/player/nicole-vaidisova_2257889_11206) who is born on 4/23/89 reached SF at RG 2006, she turned 17 and not 16 as you wrote).

[...] But the title belongs to Sesil Karantacheva who reached a QF at 15 at the French Open in 2005. :)
IMO no.

As Sesil Karatantcheva[/url]had failed a drug test at Roland Garros she explained the high levels of nandrolone in her system with pregnancy. Early 2006 the ITF issued a two-year ban and CAS denied her appeal to overturn the ban with the argument that said nandrolone was found in concentrations which were inconsistent with the normal levels for that stage of pregnancy. Sesil did not play any matches in 2006 or 2007 following her drug ban.

Yes she turned 17. I said she was 16 the month before to emphasize that she was barely 17 when she reached her first SF (and therefore QF), where as Melanie was 17 about to turn 18 when she reached her QF.

Sesil did not play any matches in 2006 or 2007 following her drug ban.

As for Sesil, I actually agree with you. She tested positive for a drug and so her QF at Roland Garros should be counted as void given the advantage she had over the rest of the field. I guess we can attribute the record of youngest WTA player to reach a SF (and therefore QF) since Martina Hingis to Nicole Vaidisova then. :)

Regardles, she gets very little respect for what she has accomplished. Many will never even make the 3rd round of a slam let alone a 1/4 final. Or make the top 100, let alone the top 50. She also has a mixed dbls slam title, which is pretty cool. It's easy for some of the losers (not aimed at you) to talk crap about her hiding behind their computer screen, but none of them have achieved the success that she has at age 20.

[...] I guess we can attribute the record of youngest WTA player to reach a SF (and therefore QF) since Martina Hingis to Nicole Vaidisova then. :)
Yes, we can!

Independently, I never had the intention to search for the youngest GS Quarterfinalist in the last decade. I contributed only to this and similar threads dedicated to Melanie Odin to remind about her previous success. And the nearly 18 years old became the media darling after she advanced to Quarters in Flushing Meadows as youngest player after Serena Williams in 1999;); with impressive court coverage and solid groundstrokes, Melanie knocked off four older, taller and higher-ranked players including Elena Dementieva, Nadia Petrova & Maria Sharapova – all after dropping the opening set. Melanie lost in the sport's largest arena under the bright lights in the big city but got the honor for an on-court interview afterwards.

But Melanie shined not only one time: She was three months younger as she sidelined – as a Qualifyer – Jelena Jankovic in Wimbledon for a R4 bid and a little bit older as she advanced to SF in P700 Paris [Indoors] 2010 and QF in P700 Charleston 2010.

It goes without saying that Melanie didn’t meet hers and others’ expectations since 2nd half 2010 season. But she doesn’t quit and works very hard for a comeback.

All the best and believe, Melanie!
