I think it's about time that Mel got her own thread. She's playing her way through the Australian Open Qualifying rounds right now. She is into the final rounds with a 7-5 7-5 win yesterday over Catalina Castano.

:hug: Melanie lost her first round match 1-6 4-6.
It was a good tournament for Mel, even if she didn't win a first round. She a nice bit of ranking points and hopefully good experience for the '09 season.

Good to see that she qualified for the main draw :)
Hope she can play consistently at this level throughout the year and end it in the top 100

rumor is that Fernandez nominated her for FC. Is this true?

Mel pulled out of this tournament so she can play Fed Cup! I think Fed Cup will be a great experience for her. Good luck Mel!

USA! USA!! Melanie won her match today against Betina Jozami! The score was 2-6 6-1 6-2! This was a tremendous under pressure win, seeing as if she would have lost, then the USA would have lost the tie. Congrats Melanie and the Fed Cup team, who ended up winning the Fed Cup tie 3-2!!! :D

I saw her at the USO last year lose to Moore:)help:) She had a good forehand then(and still does), but she sliced her backhand a lot. Today, she showed she improved a lot hitting winners with her backhand and moving to drop shots well after a while. I am a new fan:p

Correction: Melanie got a Main Draw wild card at the Cellular South Cup in Memphis. She is facing Fed Cup teammate Jill Craybas in the first round.
