Not all tears for fears

Melanie longs to be an underdog again.

WIMBLEDON – For a sport where mental toughness is frequently emphasized, tennis sure produces a drought busting amount of tears on an annual basis. Take Tuesday, when the sometimes stoic Serena Williams wept tears of joy after her 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory over Aravane Rezai, and the mostly contained Melanie Oudin dropped tears of sadness after another extremely disappointing performance, this one a 6-1, 6-0 defeat at the hands of Ana Ivanovic.
