Melanie Oudin - New 17 Yr Old Tennis Sensation


There is a new teenage sensation at the U.S. Open 2009 today in the name of Melanie Oudin (pronounce as oo-dan). She is a 17 (turning 18 this month), girl from Marietta, Georgia. Last year, she ranked 221st but last June 2009, she got a big break when she won a grand slam match against Jelena Jankovic (No.1) at the Wimbledon.

Now at the 2009 U.S. Open, she is described as a bulldog from Georgia because she is unstoppable and never gives up. Wearing a pink and yellow sneakers with the word BELIEVE stamped on the side of her shoe, she is on her way to the quarter finals beating bigger and more experienced opponents like Elena Dementieva (No.4) Maria Sharapova (No. 29) and Nadia Petrova (No. 13). She is the youngest American to reach the semi finals at the U.S. Open since Serena William’s time a decade ago. After she wins a match, you hear the beatle song “Just 17” playing in the background. Her next match will be tomorrow against Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark (No. 9) also a first time grand slam quarter finalist like Oudin.
So have a blast Melanie and best of luck to you!
