Oudin stepped onto the professional tennis stage last year at the age of 17 and made her mark quickly with her strong performance at Wimbledon and the 2009 U.S. Open. At the Open, she defeated Maria Sharapova, Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova to become the youngest American Grand Slam quarterfinalist since Serena Williams won at the 1999 Open. Melanie has adopted “Believe” as her mantra and is reminded by the engraving of the word on her tennis shoes that she wears during every game she plays.
