Melanie Oudin of Roswell, Ga. has received one of four wild cards into the US Open main draw. This year's US Open is set for August 25 – September 7 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.

In recent news about Oudin, she defeated Carly Gullickson of Brentwood, Tn. 6-4, 6-2 in an ITF Women’s Circuit tournament in Lexington, Ky. on Sunday, July 27.

Oudin also teamed up with Lindsay Lee-Waters of Dunwoody, Ga. and had a strong showing. But they lost the doubles final to fourth-seed Chin-Wei Chan/Kimberly Couts 2-6, 6-3 [10-8] in the $50,000 Fifth Third Bank Tennis Championships. Matches were played at Hilary J. Boone Varsity Tennis Complex at the University of Kentucky.

This was the second ITF Women’s Circuit final of 2008 for Oudin. She lost to Borbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic 3-6, 7-5, 6-7(5) in Fort Walton Beach, Fla. in early March.

India’s Somdev Devvarman, the two-time reigning NCAA singles champion, beat American Robert Kendrick 6-3, 6-3 in the men’s final.
