Tennis Sensation Out of Hotel -- Still in for U.S. Open

ABC's Erin Keohane reports:

Melanie Oudin, the 17-year-old tennis sensation playing in the quarterfinal at the US Open, wasn’t planning on moving hotels during the Grand-Slam tournament.

The rising superstar who has stunned opponents and spectators alike received a surprise of her own on Sunday when she was forced to switch hotels. Oudin, who was staying at the Manhattan Marriott in Times Square, was informed that she was only booked there until Sunday.

Raising the question -- did her team not think she would make as far as she did? The Hotel claims they were already booked and could not extend the athlete’s stay. Oudin moved to the Intercontinental Hotel in New York, but will the new hotel threaten her routine? Will the Marriott Marquis ever recover from the embarrassment of kicking out the young tennis phenom?
