Melanie Oudin hasn’t let the pressure of expectations bother her so far in her first match of the 2010 U.S. Open.
After making the quarterfinals last year, she is looking for another big run in this year’s tournament. She got off to a good start, taking the opening set from Olga Savchuk in her first round match.
Oudin saved two break points at 3-all, and then broke Savchuk at 4-3. She served out the set with ease, winning it 6-3 in 38 minutes.
The second set is now underway.
