Jelena Dokic upsets Safarova in Paris.

Jelena Dokic scored another notable victory in her bid to break back into the world’s elite with a 4-6 6-3 6-4 win over world number 30 Lucie Safarova at the GDF Suez Open in Paris. Dokic, currently ranked 120, came through qualifying to reach the main draw and seized her chance by fighting back against her Czech opponent and winning a marathon contest in two hours and two minutes.

Third seed Kaia Kanepi beat Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia 7-6 (7-5) 6-2, while fourth seed and Wimbledon semi-finalist Petra Kvitova was a 7-5 6-4 winner over Russia’s Vesna Manasieva. On a busy first full day for the main draw, there were also wins for American pair Melanie Oudin and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, plus eighth seed Dominika Cibulkova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova.
