Q. And the most strange, most odd thing that’s happened during this whole run that was a little surprising to you?
MELANIE OUDIN: Well, I never thought that I’d play Maria Sharapova on Arthur Ashe Stadium at the US Open this year. Definitely did not see that coming. So that whole match, just getting to play her and beating her, I’ve never met her before, so shaking her hand after the match was the first time I met her. It was crazy. The whole thing, though, I loved it.
Q. We heard Roger Federer introduced himself to you. What was that like?
MELANIE OUDIN: It was really nice. His agent actually introduced us, and he told me congratulations. I was going to tell him congratulations too, and I totally forgot about that he just had, you know, twin girls and all that stuff. My mind just kind of froze getting to meet him.
He told me good job at Fed Cup and everything. He knew how I did here and everything. It was pretty cool getting to meet him.
