Jelena Dokic seems to be making a habit of supporting the men today. She’s now been spotted watching Aussie Bernard Tomic who has just taken the first set on a tie-break and is now steaming ahead in the second against US youngster Michael Yani. Gold-Coaster Tomic is a colourful character and definitely one to watch. The 17-year-old made it to the third round of qualifying last year and reached the semi-finals of the 2009 Wimbledon Boy’s Singles before bowing out to unseeded Russian Andrey Kuznetsov. He currently holds a singles ranking of 252.

Karanusic was also prone to vocal outbursts in his mother tongue and at one point, the umpire even found himself at the receiving end of one of his tirades. The Croat was watched by Jelena Dokic, the Australian of Croatian origin who made her professional breakthrough as a qualifier here in 1999, where she went on to sweep aside world No. 1 Martina Hingis in the first round of Wimbledon dropping only two games along the way.
