Jelena Dokic – she’s baaaaaack!January 23, 2009 at 9:03 pm | Posted in All, Australia, Melbourne, Sports/Outdoor Activities, tennis | 1 Comment
Australian Tennis Open at Melbourne Park is currently on its 3rd round. I’ve just watched (on tv) the match between Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki, the 11th seed and Australia’s Jelena Dokic where Dokic won 3-6, 6-1, 6-2.
Yes! Australia’s prodigal daughter is back. After a falling out with tennis Australia and leaving the country in 2001, Dokic is back and the whole nation is embracing her. She may have been branded a persona non-grata back then but all is forgiven now. The crowd at Rod Laver Arena in her last two matches were very supportive of her.
Full match report can be read here.
Hopefully she will go on to win more matches and improve her world ranking. Good luck to her.
