If you get Tennis Channel...

Then you have been watching some old Fed Cup matches for the last few days. What a bittersweet sight it was tonight to see a 2000 match between Anna Kournikova and Jelena Dokic. I still have trouble wrapping my mind around Dokic's struggle to get a decent ranking and to get wild cards. It doesn't seem like that long ago when she was in the top five.

I couldn't believe when they didn't give dokic a WC into the aus open this year, after she had just qualified in hobart and got injured, they made her play qualifying where she lost second round. I hope because she has been consistent on the challenger circuit she gets one next year!

I was upset about it, too, David. I thought that if anyone deserved a wild card, it was Dokic.
