Melanie Oudin Outlasts Jelena Jankovic

Wimbledon 2009 27 Jun 2009

Ms. Jankovic, I warned you. If you come to play Ms. Melanie Oudin, pack your bags. Miss Oudin does not go away. She makes you run, across the court, then forward, then backward, then forward again. One set with Melanie felt like a lifetime for Ms. Jankovic, once the top player in the world and […]

Ana Ivanovic Needs a Toss!

Ana Ivanovic 24 Jun 2009

I never thought it would be hard to watch Ana Ivanovic play tennis. I was wrong. Not only is it hard to watch the Serbian beauty queen play, but it is painful. Painful to watch, filled with angst and it must be distracting to play against. This woman has the competitive heart of a lion […]
