Dokic plays wild card right into the round of 16

She took out talented teenager Tamira Paszek. Then she took out former world number 6 Anna Chakvetadze. Now Jelena Dokic, who is artfully defining the word "comeback" in Melbourne, has taken out 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki. She had to go another three sets--3-6, 6-1, 6-2--but she took care of business.

I never thought we would see Dokic return to form. That she has is now the story of the 2009 Australian Open, as far as I'm concerned, and someone else would have to do something really spectacular to keep Dokic from becoming the comeback player of the year.
