Jelena DokicFormer world No.4 and Wimbledon semifinalist Jelena Dokic won a wildcard into the main draw of the 2009 Australian Open beating Monica Wejnert 6-7(3) 7-5 6-3 in a play-off on Sunday.

Wejnert was the only player Dokic fell to during the play-off, it was in the round-robin phase, but the 25-year-old Dokic learned her lesson and didn’t let that happen one more time.

The Serbian-born Australian, ranked 179th in the world, will now attempt to qualify for tune-up tournaments in Brisbane and Hobart before taking her place in the main draw of the Australian Open which starts January 19. (source: International Herlad Tribune, photo: Ralf Reinecke)
