Former world number four Jelena Dokic has been given a wildcard to enter the Generali Ladies Linz tournament in Austria.
The organizers of the Generali Ladies Linz decided to hand Dokic a wildcard because they wanted to give their share in returning the Serbian-born Australian player to the major tennis scene.
The 25-year-old Dokic played in the final of the Tier II tournament in Linz in 2001 when she lost to American Lindsay Davenport.
Dokic played only one match in 2007, but managed to climb to No.181 in the rankings. This season Dokic won three ITF titles: Florence, Caserta and Darmstadt.
The $600,000 Generali Ladies Linz starts October 20th. (source in Serbian: Mondo)
