Melanie Oudin to undergo heart operation

American tennis star Melanie Oudin, who was diagnosed last month with a heart condition, says she will undergo surgery for the problem on Thursday.

The 23-year-old Oudin said she was recently diagnosed with a type of arrhythmia or irregular heartbeat.

"Unfortunately, I have to have a heart procedure done tomorrow morning," Oudin wrote on Twitter. 

"I`m a little nervous since this is my first surgery ever so if you guys could say a quick prayer for me that all goes well. I would really appreciate it. Thanks, love you guys!"

Oudin, who reached the quarter-finals of the 2009 US Open, hopes to be able to continue her tennis career in a few weeks.
