Experienced Russian player Nadia Petrova will play American prodigy Melanie Oudin in the fourth round. Petrova is former World No 3 and even if she is not playing her best tennis at present, she shouldn’t be the underdog against Oudin. Petrova is a baseline counterpuncher with good offensive capabilities. Her groundstrokes are powerful and are usually hit very flat, with minimal topspin, though she herself admits that she can adjust her style of play to the court conditions when needed. At 2009 US Open, Petrova is the thirteenth seed and defeated Katarina Srebotnik and Julie Coin in the first and second round in straight sets. Petrova then got past World No. 22 Zheng Jie, 6-4, 6-1. Her opponent in the fourth round will be Melanie Oudin who defeated fourth seed Elena Dementieva in the second round and 2006 champion Maria Sharapova in the third round. We have already said that Oudin is an extremely talented player and we think the big results will come sooner or later. Despite her small size, she has a relatively powerful serve. Her footwork, balance, and court coverage are exceptional and she is adept at changing from a defensive style to an aggressive one. She likes the fast surfaces and played well in previous rounds. On the other hand, she is still inexperienced and we don’t think she deserves to be a favourite here. Bearing in mind she was around 10 against Dementieva and around 6 against Sharapova, she cannot be 1.8 against Petrova. American should also be very tired and we recommend choosing Pinnacle (two sets played rule) or the bookie with first set played rule (Betfair) as she could retire.
