Oudin moves through Charleston qualifying
Melanie Oudin serves for the match
After her big win against Heather Watson last night, Melanie Oudin was ready for Petra Rampre, whom she defeated 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of qualifying. Watson is joined in the main draw by top qualifying seed Iveta Benesova (who had to overcome a breakdown of her serve in today's second set against Krystina Pliskova) and Yaroslava Shvedova (who served superbly against Andrea Hlavackova).
Camila Giorgi, who was so impressive yesterday against Grace Min, had to go over two hours and 44 minutes today against Chan Yung-Jan. Giorgi prevailed, 6-7, 7-5, 6-3.
