Dokic cruises, Sheed upsets Moore

Jelena Dokic powered past Sophie Letcher 6-3 6-0 on the opening day's play of the Australian Open Play-off.

VIDEO: Post-match interviews with Jelena Dokic, Brittany Sheed, Olivia Rogowska and Monika Wejnert

Jelena Dokic has kicked off her Australian Open Play-off with a resounding 6-3 6-0 win over Queenslander Sophie Letcher on the first day of play.
After the match, Dokic told tennis.com.au that she was happy with the way she had played.
The former world No.4 said she felt confident of winning the play-off and the wildcard into Australian Open 2009.
“I think I did well last year … and I wasn't feeling as good as I do now and I didn't have as many matches, so I have a lot better shot this year.”
Dokic said she will continue to work on her fitness and footwork in her quest to break back into the world's top 100.
While Dokic was delivering a tennis lesson to Letcher, West Australian Brittany Sheed was busy showing spectators that she was more than comfortable punching above her weight.
Sheed faced Jessica Moore, who is ranked over 400 places higher than her, and defeated her in straight sets 6-2 6-3.
The 17 year old said she was confident going into her match with Moore and it showed. Sheed used her solid ground strokes to great effect against the Australian Open 2008 girls' finalist.
Sheed said she was happy with her form but would be taking the week one match at a time.
Meanwhile, Australian Open 2008 Play-off finalist Olivia Rogowska got off to a good start in the blue group with an impressive 6-3 6-1 win over close friend Tyra Calderwood.
Rogowska withdrew from the Optus 18s Australian Championships last week with a leg injury, but said that is all behind her now thanks to the expertise of the AIS physios.
While Rogowska was a finalist last year, she has been drawn in a tough group. She will have to face both Jessica Moore, who is ranked 138 in the world, and Brittany Sheed who are also in the blue group.
“They're both really tough girls,” said Rogowska. “It's a really tough group, but I'm looking forward to it.
“I got to the final last year, but it would be good to go one better this year.”
In other matches, Queensland's Monika Wejnert defeated Optus 18s Australian Championships winner Marija Mirkovic 6-4 6-4 and Sophie Ferguson raced to a 6-2 6-1 win over Alison Bai.

Wejnert upsets Dokic in play-off

Quote:
Melbourne, 16 December 2008
Rob O'Gorman
Monika Wejnert
Tennis Australia
Jelena Dokic's hopes of obtaining a wildcard into Australian Open 2009 took a step back today when she lost to 18-year-old Queenslander Monica Wejnert at the wildcard play-off.

Dokic, who yesterday defeated Gold Coast teenager Sophie Letcher 6-3 6-0, was slowly ground down by the composed Wejnert 4-6 6-3 6-4.

While many observers considered her a a favourite to win the wildcard, the former world No.4 Dokic made an error-riddled showing on the second day of the round robin play-off.

The field is divided into four groups for the men and four for the women, with the top two in each group progressing to the quarterfinals on Friday. Dokic's next opponent is Marija Mirkovic, who was also beaten by Wejnert yesterday and today fell to Letcher.

Mirkovic was the recent winner of the Optus 18s Australian Championships - an event Wejnert withdrew from because of a wrist injury.

Wejnert, from Brisbane, won her first Pro Circuit title in Perth a few weeks ago and is an emerging talent on the Australian tennis landscape.

"She's probably the highest ranked I've beaten so far in my career so it's great," a delighted Wejnert said after the match.

"I was a bit nervous coming in and [early in the game] she just kind of hit me off court but then I stabilised and it was good.
"She definitely has a great forehand and I knew if I stayed in a cross court rally, she would always come on top of me so I was trying to avoid that as much as possible."
