It looks like Jelena was really hampered by the injury :sad:

Jelena Dokic crashes out Hyderabad Open
HYDERABAD, FEB 8 (PTI)

Former world number four Jelena Dokic of Serbia crashed out in the first round while top seed Na Li and last year's finalist Maria Kirilenko advanced to the next round of the WTA Hyderabad Open tennis tournament here today.

Clearly hampered by a thigh injury, Dokic went down to Italy's Mara Santangelo 6-7 (2-7) 3-6 at the Centre Court of the Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh complex.

Chinese girl Li, world number 56, easily defeated Marie-Gayanay Mikalian of Switzerland 6-3 6-3 and Russia's Kirilenko whipped Bahia Mouthassine of Morocco 6-3 6-1 to move into the second round.

Dokic, 21, had pulled out of the recent Volvo Open at Pattaya in Thailand in second round due to this injury.

The winner of five WTA titles and currently ranked 126, Dokic could not do much as her movements on court were limited and that facilitated her Italian opponent to race to a 3-0 lead in the opener. The Serbian clawed her way back to level the score 3-3.

The two then held their serve leading to tie-breaker in which Dokic was again clearly troubled by the injury.

In the second set, Santangelo broke Dokic in the very first serve and then dominated her opponent to claim victory.

Injured or not, Santangelo is ranked #177. That's a disgusting loss, especially the fact Jelena lost in straight sets. This really is her worst loss in about six years (since her rookie year on tour).

If the injury is that bad, hopefully she'll learn from the past and take a fucking week or two off rather than be a globetrotter who crashes out in the first round every tournament
