Biography

Melanie Oudin's grandmother introduced her to tennis, and at the age of seven, she started to play with her twin sister at courts in their hometown of Marietta, Georgia. The 21-year-old's rapid rise through junior level saw her win 27 consecutive matches and four straight titles on the ITF Junior Circuit, before turning professional a year later. The American's key breakthrough on the main tour happened at Wimbledon in 2009. From qualifying, Oudin defeated former world number one, Jelena Jankovic en-route to the fourth round. Later that year, in a repeat of her heroics at The Championships, she reached the quarter-final of her home Grand Slam and defeated a selection of seeds in the process, including Maria Sharapova.

20:24...But boy, it was a barrow-load of fun. I hope you enjoyed it even half as much as we did. Thank you for all your messages throughout, you've been the glue holding us together as the edges frayed amid the madness. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for us Brits to raise a toast to Andy Murray and Fred Perry. British sporting legends both.

20:19It was the wackiest of Wimbledons with the most unlikely of headline-makers: Sergiy Stakhovsky, Steve Darcis, Michelle Larcher de Brito, Kimiko-Date Krumm, Jerzy Janowicz, Sabine Lisicki, Marion Bartoli...
