Jelena out of French Open

23 May 2011

Jelena Dokic has been knocked out of the French Open following a three-set loss to Vera Dushevina on Sunday.

The Russian won 4-6 6-3 6-2 in one hour and 47 minutes with Dokic exiting in the opening round for the second straight year at Roland Garros.

Dokic paid the price for a poor serving display on Court 2, landing only 56 per cent of her first serves and delivering six double faults.

The Australian was troubled by a hand injury during the contest.

During the warm-up, the world No.65 appeared to hurt the palm of her hand and needed treatment on it for a few minutes.

She looked in pain, shaking her head and wincing in pain, and there were fears she might pull out of the match.

However, she stepped on court and won the opening four points of the match on the way to an early break.

Despite regularly icing her hand at her chair in between games, Dokic managed to win the first set before world No.63 Dushevina rallied and won the final two sets.
