Jelena Dokic loses in Australian Open wildcard play-off

Jelena Dokic

Former world number four Jelena Dokic, who is working hard on her comeback, got upset on the second day of the round-robin Australian Open wildcard play-off.

The 25-year-old Dokic, who previously defeated Gold Coast teenager Sophie Letcher 6-3 6-0, fell to an emerging Australian talent Monica Wejnert 4-6 6-3 6-4 on day two, and so Dokic’s hopes of obtaining a wildcard into Australian Open 2009 took a step back.

The field is divided into four groups, with the top two in each group progressing to the quarterfinals on Friday. Dokic’s next opponent is Marija Mirkovic. (via Tennis Australia, photo: Ralf Reinecke)
