Injured Dokic will make open

Injured Dokic will make Open

Australian tennis draw card Jelena Dokic says the Achilles injury that has forced her out of the Hobart international should not stop her competing at the Australian Open.

Dokic was in Hobart to continue her preparations for this month's Melbourne Park grand slam after being granted a wildcard into qualifying.

Dokic, 25 said she strained her Achilles tendon training on Thursday afternoon and the precautionary decision to withdraw from the Hobart tournament was made on Friday.

The former world No.4 said the injury should not disrupt her Open preparations "too much".

"The Australian open is still 10 days away so I still have some time, which is good, and I should be all right," Dokic told reporters.

Re: Injured Dokic will make open

So she was actually training over in Hobart when she sustained the injury. I think this goes to show that Jelena is still serious about her comeback and just wants to give herself the best possible chance for Melbourne.

Re: Injured Dokic will make open

good to hear she'll be OK for the Open. Hope she can get a kind draw and win a match to make up for her lost Hobart points!

She has mor egame in her pinkie than Chaky does in her whole game, a fit and fired up Jelena has much more potential in terms of beating big names IMO just wait and see what 2009 will bring..

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
