The Australian "blue clay" isn't a great surface for her. I would rather she skip going down-under, save her cash, and focus on training for clay season. Clay is probably her best chance for wins, points and cash.

She has to improve her footwork and timing, it's gotten sloppy, and it's killing her. Sometime, she has great footwork, other times she hardly moves. So, actually... I would like to see her spend some of the off-season training with her old coach, working on footwork and speed. She improves that, and it will improve everything, but perhaps the serve. Also, I think she's looking fitter than I've seen her in awhile, but losing a little more would help with her movement. Look what it's done for Woz.

It's been a tough year for Mel, on the other hand, she's got nothing to defend at the beginning of the year, and little after that. She has a lot of room to improve her ranking
Are you referring to the old coach who slept with Melanie's mom? THAT old coach?

At this point, it's really not relevant as it looks like most of her off-season will be spent in recovery, again. But, yeah, I was suggesting that she work with him some during the off-season on footwork. She had great footwork when she was working with him, for the most part, but the last few matches I've seen of Mel's, her footwork has been more bad than good. It affects the rest of her game. So, spending some time in off-season, focused on regaining her great footwork, would be time well spent. I wasn't suggesting that she start working with him full-time.

Even if he offered to work for free, I don't see that happening.

Re: Melanie Oudin

Mel tweeted today that her recovery from the eye surgery is going well, but she seems to have torn a muscle in her back. She just can't catch a break.
