Dokic doesn't make the cut, no Australian Open comeback

Jelena Dokic

Thirty-year-old Jelena Dokic has been trying to make a comeback, not having played since retiring at Charleston 2012 with right wrist injury and a subsequent surgery, but her ambitions crumbled at the first hurdle, as her first opponent at the Australian Open wildcard play-offs was hard-hitting Jarmila Gajdosova who took her out 6-2 6-4.

Regarding fashion, while Dokic was wearing tracksuit pants during the match, Gajdosova worked Venus Williams' EleVen clothing line, in particular the white EleVen Women's Autumn Grand Slam Dress with print insets at the shoulders and skirt. Australian Gajdosova and Australian-born Brit Johanna Konta are, besides Venus, EleVen's signature athletes. (source: Fox Sports, photos: Ralf Reinecke, Getty Images)

    Should have played some ITF leading in as Gajdosova did . Could get a WC into Aus Open qualifying.
    A bigger question- does she really want to play?

    JE, I suppose she does still want to play. She's been trying for years to make a real comeback.

    "A bigger question- does she really want to play?" Well, the answer is, obviously: No, she doesn't – and that's the very reason why she plays. P.S. If there be an even bigger, let alone the biggest question, I'll be all too glad to provide the appropriate answer.
