Pictured above is former US Open champion (in 2006), Maria Sharapova. The 22 year old has a great forehand and is demonstrating where to make contact with the ball. Sharapova will need to continue to play her best tennis to beat the 17 year old conqueror of No.4 seed Elena Dementieva – Melanie Oudin. Oudin proved at Wimbledon that she has the game to contest at the top of the women’s game.
