Dokic gets Australian Open wild card

Though she lost to Olivia Rogowska in the wild card playoffs, Jelena Dokic will not have to go through qualifying in Melbourne. Tennis Australia has awarded Dokic a wild card into the main draw.

In 2009, Dokic was awarded a wild card, and she made it all the way to the quarterfinals in an especially dramatic and emotional run.

Finally a little sanity from TA.

(But I'm sure the usual eyebrow-raising looniness is just around the corner.)

Indeed--it always is.

Love Dokic - really hope she does well again
