Quotes from Melanie after losing to Fran:
"I pretty much got a clay-court lesson. I haven't played anyone that hits the ball that heavy. She's serving well, she's moving well, she pretty much doesn't have a weakness on the clay. I can see how she won the French Open last year. She's so confident here. You could see the shots she was going for and making them. I thought she played really, really well. There really wasn't much I could do."

If she loses to Lertcheewakarn, it will just show how bad/low in confidence Mel is. The same year that Mel reached R4 at Wimbledon, Nok was still slumming around in juniors as an 18 year old trying to win a slam. She had better win... either way it will be a very telling match.
