Dokic Withdraws From ASB Classic

A major blow for Auckland's ASB Tennis Classic with tournament draw card Jelena Dokic pulling out of the tournament, citing personal reasons.
The world number 15 was seeded second for the Classic, and was due to make her first appearance down under for two years, since her much publicised split with Tennis Australia.
Dokic has been ranked as high as number four in the world and her decision not to come leaves a massive hole in the field.
Her place in the main draw will now go to world number 71 Anabel Medina Carrigues of Spain.
