Still checking on blogs like I have been doing this whole week. I found some interesting articles that I will link to.
FoxNews.com wonders where the young women contenders are. We got Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin, Serena & Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova.

Greg Couch is attending Indian Wells and blogs. One of his blogs is an interesting read. It deals with America’s tennis sweetheart Melanie “Miracle Melanie” Oudin. She got ousted in the first round of the Indian Wells tournament losing to Roberta Vinci, 3-6, 6-3, 6-0. But that’s not the worst part according to Greg. Mel’s playing as if she no self confidence at all and it’s a not a fun sight. http://tennis.fanhouse.com/2010/03/12/miracle-melanies-missing-confidence/
