Former world No.4 Jelena Dokic, now unranked after missing two years with injuries, on Tuesday made her first WTA Tour main draw appearance since January and lost in straight sets in the first round.
Dokic had to go through qualifying to reach the main draw of the Grand Prix de SAR La Princesse Lalla Meryem, but she didn’t go further than the first round when she lost 6-4 6-2 to Hungary’s Greta Arn. Dokic had won both her previous meetings with Arn, the last six years ago. On Tuesday, she double-faulted 11 times and converted only one of four break chances.
Before this Tier IV event, Dokic played only once this year in the main draw of a WTA tournament, when she qualified at Hobart, Australia (her first main draw in two years).
Dokic has won five WTA Tour titles in her career, and was a Wimbledon semifinalist in 2000.
