Dokic out with an ankle injury? Dokic says she didn't tank please read

Australian Jelena Dokic has pulled out of her second round match at the Hobart International with an ankle injury.

Dokic was trailing five games to love in the first set at the time and says she sprained her ankle in her final qualifying match on Sunday.

The game was handed to her opponent, Italian Flavia Pennetta.

There was speculation Dokic would withdraw from the Hobart tournament in a bid to qualify for the Australian Open.

This was a tanked match TA is to blame

Good Luck - JELENA, ANA, SERENA & IVANA

Bring it home Alex, Nina, Angie and Andrea

Monica Seles a true legend
Good luck to all the Aussie girls Oi Oi Oi

Meh, I doubt it's a serious issue. Just an excuse to get to Melbourne. I hope so, anyway.

Re: Dokic out with an ankle injury?

January 08, 2008 JELENA Dokic's winning run at the Hobart International came to an abrupt halt when she sensationally retired after just five games of her second round match.

Dokic was down 0-5 against Italy's Flavia Pennetta when she called the trainer onto the court.

After having her right ankle assessed, she told the umpire and Pennetta she could not go on, gifting Pennetta a quarter-final berth.

Dokic told media after the match that she had sprained her ankle during her qualifying match against Russian Yaroslava Shevdova and played through the pain since.

"I sprained it two days ago but it is getting worse," Dokic said.

"It was in pain in practice this morning but I wanted to give it a go."

Dokic said she was disappointed with the outcome of match but added five matches in five days had taken their toll on her physically after two-and-a-half years off the tour.

She will assess her ankle and decide on her next move after being given a wildcard into the Australian Open qualifying tournament beginning on Thursday morning.

"It is too soon to tell," she said when asked if she would be fit to take the court in two days' time.

"It may be doubtful now but I shall see tomorrow."

Dokic dismissed suggestions she retired from the match to give herself time to get back to Melbourne for qualifying.

"If I had won tonight I would have stayed (in Hobart)," she said."

The Australian Open is not my biggest goal and if I don't play there it is not a big deal.

"You don't leave a tournament, it's not fair to the tournament or the people or the crowd or myself."

Good Luck - JELENA, ANA, SERENA & IVANA

Did she kill your dog and ate your homework or something? Why do you hate her so much? She is just another tennis player that tries to make a living, after all that she's been through. She deserves support. Yes, she has a bad history in tennis commitments, but she seems to be quite genuine this time in her effort through qualifying. If you really want to hate someone, why don't you go try Stevenson?

I am a supporter of Serenus Justinpovanovic.

Yeah, seriously GoDom, your Dokic hate is so ridiculous LOL. You haven't posted in a little while and the second you have something to pounce on, you come on and start shitting on her.

You may not believe that she's gonna do anything beyond the Australian season, but to this point she's been extremely humble and realistic about her goals and expectations and declined direct main draw entry in favor of playing qualifying. To me, that suggests that she's serious right now and is working with a good head on her shoulders.

Hopefully the ankle doesn't affect her ability to qualify for the Aussie open if that is the option she does follow.

This thread is not about her expectations or humbleness, this is about her claiming the retirement was legit. Which no one believes for a second, not even you.

Therefore, I pointed out that she is obviously lying the whole time. What's wrong with that?

You didn't "just point out that she was obviously lying" You made a thread essentially calling her a piece of shit spoiled bitch who doesn't deserve anything, and that's simply not fair.

While I don't believe Jelena's ankle was the main reason for her retiring in this match, I can still see where she's coming from. She was playing against an in form player who was likely going to defeat her in any scenario, and she's played like 5 days in succession without break and is probably exhausted. On top of that, she wants to give herself the best opportunity to play in her home slam. Is that such a crime?

Give her a break. At the very least wait til she deserves criticism before you come on here and start attacking her.

She is lying though. Of course she retired to play AO qualifying. She will be fine again once qualifying starts.
