Re: Melanie Oudin

From Tennis.com:

Oudin on recent struggles: "It's all on me"
Ticker - Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Even though she is on a four-match losing streak and has seen her ranking drop to No. 111, American teenager Melanie Oudin says that she will make no changes to her team or ask anyone else for help. The 2009 U.S. Open quarterfinalist says that she striking the ball well in practice, but is focusing too much on the score in matches. On Tuesday at the Mercury Insurance Open in San Diego, Elena Baltacha walloped her, 6-0 6-1, in less than an hour.

"I feel like it’s about my figuring it out and I can’t get down on myself every time I lose," she told TENNIS.com. "I don’t feel like it’s somebody else’s fault. Some players when they do well, they just blame the coach. But I'm smart enough to realize that it’s not the coach. It’s all on me."

Oudin has been coached by South African Brian de Villiers since she's been a junior. The Fed Cupper says that USTA Player Development has reached out to her, but she's not ready to accept a helping hand.

After Wimbledon, Oudin took a 10-day vacation the Bahamas with her twin sister Katherine and felt like she had cleared her head, but the results have not shown up yet.

"When I practice I’m relaxed and hitting freely," said Oudin, who will try and qualify for Toronto next week. "But in matches I have to forget about winning or losing, but that is way easier said that done. It’s mental.”


I don't think this is good, not good at all!!!

So how many matches in a row does she have to lose before she feels ready to look elsewhere for help?

Re: Melanie Oudin

Whatever I give up. Her talent is wasted and she will never play well again. I was still holding on to a thread of hope that she would find a new coach and regroup but obviously that's not going to happen.

I'm not a fair weather fan. Check out my faces. It's just that if Mel isn't going to do anything differently..

Re: Melanie Oudin

I honestly hope for her own good, she doesn't enter Cincy qualies, as I feel these losses have to affect her to some point! She needs to enter some ITF's, get some wins, and figure some stuff out. If she has no plans to switch coaches or change the direction of her career, she is going to keep falling, and getting blown out in WTA events is no boost to ones confidence.
