Georgia's Oudin Upsets Jankovic at Wimbledon

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Teenage qualifier Melanie Oudin
(Oo-dan') of Marietta, Ga., has advanced to the fourth round in her
first Wimbledon by upsetting former No. 1 Jelena Jankovic, 6-7 (8),
7-5, 6-2.

The No. 6-seeded Jankovic struggled with the heat on a sunny,
82-degree Saturday. When the 66-minute first set ended, a trainer
and doctor came on court to check Jankovic's pulse and blood
pressure.

She rested on a towel while being treated, and after several
minutes sat up while ice was applied to her neck and midsection.
Play resumed after a 12-minute delay, and Oudin was the steadier
player from the baseline the rest of the way.

The 17-year-old Oudin had an 0-2 record in Grand Slam matches
before making her Wimbledon debut this week.
