Is was a good match. Beti was very unlucky to draw Jelena coz of what I saw they were both hitting the ball way better than anyone else there. Jelena was really, really motivated today and really wanted to win! She hit about 20 winners to about 30 unforced errors. She served alot of doubles but she did go after her second serves. Jelena really stepped up at the end. She played her best tennis in the tiebreak. Beti played great and never gave up. Beti threw everything at Jelena but Jelena handled the pressure well and played two spectacular winners at the end to close it out. She was quite relaxed and very positive!

Gritty … Jelena Dokic shows her determination to win through to the open during yesterday's wildcard first round.

...and quotes after her 1st rnd match:
"I was a little bit nervous, I haven't played matches in a really long time," said Dokic, whose most recent tournament was in Italy in August. "There are some things I need to improve on but I expected not to play so well in the first match. I feel good, I think match play will help.

"I think I got a little bit defensive. I get nervous which is normal, but that comes down to match play. I'm not used to that - I used to play 70 or 80 matches a year so I think that will just take some time. I've lost my feel for playing matches and for being at tournaments but I expect to improve with each match."

Dokic said she now felt more relaxed after easing her way back into Australian tennis.

"It's much better now than the first day - I was a little bit lost the first day and I didn't know anybody. A lot of people have tried to help me to fit in and it's a much better feel now and we all get along a little bit better," she said. "I don't expect everybody to be on my side, but it's been great so far."

Dokic said she appreciated the chance to work again with Bowrey, who has steadfastly been one of her strongest supporters.

"We haven't had much work yet but it's better, I think, someone who can help me and she knows me quite well - and she knows how I get in matches and what I need to work on," Dokic said.
