Dokic gets Wimbledon qualifying WC

Advertisment

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Mark Philippoussis, the 2003 Wimbledon runner-up, was one of eight men who received wild-card invitations Friday to play in the grass-court Grand Slam tournament.

Philippoussis has been plagued by injuries and he's currently ranked 176th.

Others getting wild cards were Romania's Andrei Pavel and six British men: Jamie Baker, Richard Bloomfield, Alex Bogdanovic, Jamie Delgado, Martin Lee, and Alan Mackin.

Women's wild cards went to: Australia's Alicia Molik, Belarus' Victoria Azarenka, Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska and five British players: Sarah Borwell, Naomi Cavaday, Anne Keothavong, Katie O'Brien and Melanie South.

Jelena Dokic, a semifinalist at Wimbledon in 2000, was given a wild-card entry into the women's qualifying event.

Thumbs up

Do you think she'll pull out of that one??

Still a surprise though

Maybe Jelena is going to do a Djokovic and play for Britain We need them both.

Wonder if there are any grass tournies she can prep on?

If she has no WC for Eastbourne, the only other grass tournie I can find is the Ordina, Netherlands, I dont know if she is allowed to play that though.

it will be hard considering the fact that she doesn't play on grass at all thsi season but I hope she'll do great anyway...she must be training yet so she sure can do something good + she is great on grass! go jeca! do something great in the qualifying and then kick some ass in the main draw! best of luck!

super jenny...thank you for everything
