JJ shocked by Melanie, complains of "woman problems" in loss

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.

  1. Well done, Oudin! (It rhymes!). Maybe we'll have another Alexandra Stevenson. Can't see it happening, though. I love Isia and she should win and make it to QF. :)

  2. Oh, JJ. If she really was suffering from women's problems, I feel bad for her. But still, TMI. That is so not what I want to be thinking about when I'm watching matches...

    Anyway, the Serb slide really needs to stop sometime soon. Before I go crazy.

  3. JJ should have just said "It's hard running around in heat while your on your period." LOL!

    Very happy to see an American coming up. We need more Americans out there. I love the William sisters but I'm tired of seeing them carrying the sport by themselves.
