Jelena Dokic awarded a wildcard to Sydney’s Medibank Int.

Jelena Dokic will make her long-awaited return to the Medibank International Sydney in January after securing a wildcard. Australian favourite Dokic was announced as the first female wildcard into the January 9 to 15 event and will join seven of the world’s top 10 women, including Caroline Wozniacki, Kim Clijsters and Samantha Stosur. This will be Dokic’s first appearance at the event since January 2000 and only her third visit to Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre. Dokic, currently ranked 138, said she was excited about returning to her hometown event, after a difficult injury-plagued 2010 season.

“I am very grateful to be awarded a wildcard into the Medibank International Sydney,” Dokic said. “I have a lot of great memories from playing there during the 2000 Olympics, so I hope the Sydney crowds will come out and support me. “The tournament organisers have shown a lot of confidence in me and have provided me with a great opportunity to get some tough matches under my belt ahead of the Australian Open. “The women’s draw there is incredible, so I know I am going to have to be at my very best to get some good results but I am very happy with how my form is coming along so far.”
