Melanie Oudin has returned to tournament play for the first time since last year, losing to Petra Cetkovska, 3-6, 6-3, 7-5, in Osprey, a $50,000 ITF Pro Circuit event.

It was her first event since November, shortly after which she was diagnosed with rhabdomyolysis, which can cause muscle damage. "My arms are so weak," she told the Associated Press last year. "I can barely carry anything."

Oudin, 22, is now ranked No. 132.
