Chakvetadze out of Melbourne

The resurgent Jelena Dokic has taken 17th seed Anna Chakvetadze out of the Australian Open. Dokic won their 2nd round match 6-4, 6-7, 6-3. Chakvetadze double-faulted 16 times, and made 50 unforced errors. However, she did hit 28 winners (Dokic hit 27).

While it is encouraging to see Dokic get to the third round, it is far from encouraging to see the talented Chakvetadze continue to struggle so much.

Dokic's next opponent is Caroline Wozniacki, and that should be a don't-miss match.
