Melanie Oudin’s Shoes: 2010 Edition

You may remember Tennis Darling Melanie and her pink “Believe” shoes from last year’s US Open. She is back! With new inspirational footwear!

  • In action:

    Melanie defeated Ukrainian Olga Savchuk 6-3, 6-0 in her first match Monday. Her next match will be Wednesday, against Alona Bondarenko (also Ukranian).

  • Melanie explains her word choice: "Well, I just decided to put the word "courage" this year as something different, and I really think I need to play with courage this year after I had a great run last year." (She is 18, cut her some slack.)

  • Last year's shoes:

    Melanie picked the colors, and her 15-year-old boyfriend added the word "believe." Awwww.

  • The face of courage:
