Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

It already is a fairytale even if it ends in R3.

Tamira and Chaky are no pushovers...especially Chaky tonight, she played great aggressive tennis in the latter second set to win it

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

I think she'll lose to the Woz, but she's still a winner in my eyes.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

I think with this experience and new found confidence, shes genuinely ready to return tot he WTA tour.

Heck, in her current form she will be a contender at smaller WTA tourns

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

I dont know about fairytale, if she can get past R3, maybe.

But even if she loses in R3, it'll still be a successfull AO for her and give her plenty of confidence

Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

No matter what happens now she's put her name back on the radar. i genuinely believe she can beat Wozniacki.

Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

Interesting... she will have to face Dinara in the 4th round, and if she wins, Ana (possibly) awaits in the QF.

Then there's Jelena Jankovic (again, possibly) in the SF...

Wow, a giantkilling act in the making?

Re: Is Dokic the fairy tale of AO 09?

I want Dokic to have a fairytale run, but I want Wozniacki to have a fairytale run even more, so sadly I have to root for her in this next match... especially since Dokic has already taken out my Chaky
