Qualifier Melanie Oudin is through to the third round of Wimbledon

Melanie OudinGood win for Hewitt, knocking out Del Potro to give himself a clear run to the quarters. Is there a bit of hope for Hewitt or more of a case of Del Potro’s aversion to grass? Stosur came back to end qualifier Malek’s nice run but Oudin’s still going. Otherwise all seeds won and Ferrero took care of Santoro’s wizardry. Cibulkova and Zvonareva both pulled from doubles, either because they have injury concerns or they just hate their partners.

The Guardian has noticed that lots of tennis players are from Eastern Europe. Starts well though: “There was a lovely moment at a tournament in the United States a few years ago when Vera Zvonareva of Russia was fretting over the thought that she might be overwhelmed by reporters who wanted to speak to her. In stepped the Australian Jelena Dokic, never one to mince her words. "I don't think you need to worry about that, Vera," she said.”
