It is understood she will formalize plans for a Melbourne Park preparation for the January 19 - February 1 Australian Open.

TA player development director Craig Tilley said Dokic would soon discuss her schedule with Australia Institute of Sport head coach Brent Larkham.

He said she might contest the Open wildcard playoff.



If she plays in Brisbane I am soooo going!

She amuses me soo much.
Her goal was top 50, and yet all she played mostly 25Ks
I would love if she actually played a full season for the first time in years next year

Yeah not a surprise but still good news. Hopefully she can play a full Australian summer schedule and then play on the main tour next season.

Re: JELENA DOKIC NEWS! Herald Sun article, coming back for Australian Summer!

She has played this year--actually in 12 tournaments, which is a LOT more than the last few years.

She played in 3 WTA main draws--qualifying for 2 (Hobart and Fes) and getting a WC into Strasbourg.

She played 7 25K events, winning 3 and made the SF of a $75K.

She went from unranked to #180 in the world and was 34-9 overall.

Good luck to her next year--I hope she really breaks through in australia.

(I'm still not sure why she didn't play USO qualies)

Good to see she is talking to TA now. I think she needs a good team behind her in order to make the next step. Just look at what she did with being a tad more dedicated to her comeback and a coach who can easily be replaced with a better one.

Still showing signs that she cares, which I like to see! A proper schedule and a good team surrounding her might just be the thing she needs to crack the top 100 and really take this comeback to the next level.

thats the point though, 12 tournaments isn't a lot when you're trying to make it back, and doing things like not playing US open qualies just makes me think she wants to be back at the top again but dosen't want to put the hard work in.
