Is there actually an American non-Williams lady baller still in the draw? Pinch me...I must be dreaming.
Melanie Oudin, a qualifier playing her first Wimbledon, pulled a huge upset today in the third round knocking out former top lady baller and sixth seed Jelena Jankovic 6-7 (10), 7-5, 6-2 who called the trainer out a couple of times mid-match after struggling with a myriad of issues including supposed "woman problems" according to a Wimby tweet:
Does she mean her makeup got runny?
Anyway, GREAT win for the American teen who at only 17-years old showed a lot of courage and fight to close out the win against a struggling and experienced opponent. She'll face either Na Li or Agnieszka Radwanska for a spot in the quarterfinals.
As for JJ, I hope everything is fine with her health because her game is teetering. She's at a definitive crossroads and with her confidence shaken she could take a major tumble. The move to the hardcourts could turn things around - and she'll need it since she has a runner-up appearance at Flushing Meadow to defend.
Tough times indeed.
