Dokic out of Canberra

Injured Dokic out of Canberra tournament

January 5, Canberra - Jelena Dokic has been forced to withdraw from the 2006 Richard Luton Properties Canberra International due to a recurrence of an injury to her left abductor which was aggravated after her first round match at the ASB Classic in Auckland.

Dokic rang Tournament Director Gerard Corradini today to inform him of her withdrawal when it was clear that she would not be suficiently recovered in time to play the Canberra tournament.

"When we spoke today Jelena was clearly disappointed that she wouldn’t be able to play in Canberra," said Corradini.

"She told me that she had been over the moon when she first heard she had a wildcard to this event which made having to pull out today all the harder for her.

"She’s now planning to get further treatment for the injury and is still optimistic of being fit to play in the Australian Open which starts in 11 days time."

The Richard Luton Properties Canberra International takes place at the National Sports Club, Canberra from 8-13 January 2006. This international event is a joint initiative between Tennis Australia and Tennis ACT, and forms part of the ‘Road to the Australian Open’ which helps the world’s top players prepare for the first Grand Slam of the new season.

Replacing Dokic in the maindraw will be rising Australian talent Sophie Ferguson from Sydney. 19-year-old Ferguson, who is coached by Tony Roche, defeated Nicole Pratt last week in a playoff for a maindraw wildcard for the Mondial Australian Women’s Hardcourts on the Gold Coast.

That sucks for Dokic and her bad luck continues.....

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

It does suck. Well I hope she gets better and gets a good draw at the aus open. I can only hope for future luck for her, as it's about time she starts receiving it.

oh well
looks like the definite (of course the psychological saga will continue for a while) end of Dokic.
The end is not because of an injury in my opinion.
But many players these days use that as an excuse.
Many other things have gone wrong.
