NEW YORK (AP) - The father of American tennis sensation Melanie
Oudin is seeking a divorce from her mother, alleging Leslie Oudin had an affair with the teenager's coach, according to a report by SI.com.
The Web site reported Wednesday night that Oudin's father, John, filed for divorce in July 2008 on grounds of adultery. According to the report, John Oudin said in a sworn statement last month that his wife had an affair with the 17-year-old's coach, Brian de Villiers.
Melanie Oudin's parents were married in 1989 and have three daughters.
John Oudin was not in his daughter's guest box Wednesday night for her U.S. Open quarterfinal loss to No. 9-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark.
