Expected. But I am 100% sure those 2 mugs will bomb out in early rounds.

Bit pessimistic there, eh? Dokic had a magical run just recently, and Luczak is a fighter who was only 30 spots away from a direct entry as is (and 2 games away from the WC spot), so it certainly wouldn't come as a surprise for either to win a couple of rounds. I'd give Dokic the better chance of a run, but in any event both of these selections were absolute no brainers...

Don't take anything underspin apprentice says seriously.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Dokic made semis 2 years ago, and with the WTA in its current state of disgrace, would be no surprise to see Dokic repeat that.

Re: Playoff finalists Dokic, Luzcak given Oz wildcards

Hell froze for Luczak getting a card Glad to see TA appreciated his fight against Marinko! I hope he gets a good draw.

I like Dokic, but I don't like WTA, so I guess no comment on that one.

Pretty sure Dokic never made AO semi.

Good news for them both. With a bit of luck as far as the draw goes, Luczak could well win his first match and Dokic her first couple of matches as well.

Re: Playoff finalists Dokic, Luzcak given Oz wildcards

Luczak did draw Nadal at the Aus Open and Fed at RG in the 1st round. Hopefully he draws Berlocq or Riba this time around.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

According to Wikipedia, which is not a good tennis source, Dokic best run was Quarters in AO 2009.

Luczak is really a big loser. Can't even win this match before his homecrowd. what a pathetic clown. Dokic is done.

Dokic won her first round match at the 2009 Australian Open against Tamira Paszek of Austria, 6–2, 3–6, 6–4. It was her first Grand Slam match win since 2003. She then defeated World No. 17 Anna Chakvetadze in the second round, 6–4, 6–7, 6–3 and 11th-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark in the third round 3–6, 6–1, 6–2. This was the first time she had reached the fourth round of the Australian Open. Dokic then advanced to the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time since 2002 after defeating 29th-seeded Alisa Kleybanova 7–5, 5–7, 8–6. Dokic's run ended when she was defeated by Dinara Safina in the semi-finals 6–4, 4–6, 6–4. Because of this tournament, her ranking improved to World No. 91.

Re: Playoff finalists Dokic, Luzcak given Oz wildcards

I watched some of the final vs Matosevic -- it was a long match so I dropped in and out but watched the whole fifth set. Both guys just refused to give up. Luczak certainly deserves one more than that kid who didn't want to play at the playoff. I know Tomic is younger and has more potential, while Luczak is probably looking at his last season, but character should still count for something & Luczak played like someone who doesn't feel he's owed anything.
