Family Circle Cup: Jelena Jankovic Vs Melanie Oudin Match Preview
Former World No.1 Jelena Jankovic faces American Melanie Oudin in the Opening Round of the Family Circle Cup.

Former World No.1 last week’s Sony Open semi-finalist Jelena Jankovic takes on local girl Melanie Oudin in the First Round of the Family Circle Cup, a WTA International Event taking place in Charleston, USA. Jankovic comes into this match ranked No.18 in the World as compared to No.86 for Oudin.

Jankovic comes into this match having lifted a WTA Title this year in Columbia. With a 12-5 win-loss record this year the Serb displayed some fantastic tennis last week in Miami, losing to Maria Sharapova. A clean striker of the ball, Jankovic’s down the line backhand is devastating and not only helps her open up the court, but also hit some winners. She would be looking to continue her good form here as she looks to win her 14th WTA Tour Title.

On the other hand, Oudin lifted the 2011 US Open Mixed Doubles Title but has failed to live up to expectations surrounding her. Yet to crack the Top-30 in the World, the former World No.31 would be gunning to cause an upset here in front of her home crowd. With just 1 victory this year, Oudin has struggled a lot this year and would look to change this at this event.

The two have faced each other 2 times with Oudin surprisingly winning both the matches. Both those matches were on grass with Jankovic coming in to this match as a favorite for this one.
