I was just watching Melanie Oudin, age 20. I hadn't seen her since her big run at the US Open in 2009. I was shocked. She looks like she has picked up 20 pounds, much of it around her mid-section. She has been playing the whole time, and it has only been three years. In fact, she is performing well and the commentators were going on and on about what a hard worker she is. So it can't be a situation where she is slacking off or skipping practice. I do not understand how a professional tennis player gets so visibly overweight. I have women on my team who are in their 50's who have had multiple children and have desk jobs but who are slimmer than Oudin. Need I mention that none of us can hire a fitness trainer or be active all day every day like a tennis pro. I don't mean to pick on Oudin, but she is so young and clearly does not have fat genes in the family. It's not like she retired and is coming back. I have seen other pros chunk up (Nalbandian, Baghdatis, Almagro), so it is not just Oudin or women. What's going on with that?
