Seventeen-Year-Old Melanie Oudin Stuns Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open!

Seventeen-Year-Old Melanie Oudin Stuns Maria Sharapova at the U.S. Open!

It has been an amazing summer for seventeen-year-old Melanie Oudin, who hasn’t quite finished growing up but who’s in the midst of a life-changing season of big emotions and pulling off very big upsets.  Melanie is still very much a teenager from Marietta, Ga., enjoying the trip of her life in the Big Apple, playing foosball in the players’ lounge and using words like “amazing” and “cool” as she works her dizzying way through the draw at the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows.

Now, despite standing just 5 feet 6 inches, she’s standing tall at her country’s most important tennis tournament.  Oudin’s latest win was the biggest so far: She knocked off three-time Grand Slam Champion and former No. 1 Maria Sharapova 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 Saturday to reach the U.S. Open’s fourth round.  “I just had a blast,” said Oudin, who buried her face in a towel and sobbed on the sideline when the match ended.
