Dokic out of Memphis in first round

Jelena Dokic said during Fed Cup play that she was expecting a post-Melbourne letdown, and she got one tonight in Memphis, when top seed Caroline Wozniacki defeated her 6-2, 6-1 in the first round of the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships.

Wozniacki looks very strong in the Memphis field; playing Dokic was probably one of the biggest challenges in front of her, and she handled that extremely well. Waiting for her, possibly, will be Victoria Azarenka, who is seeded second. 3rd seed Lucie Safarova lurks in Azarenka's side of the draw, however.

Other players who could possibly fight their way to the last days of play are Anne Keothavong, Sabine Lisicki, and even Michaella Krajicek, though she will be facing Wozniacki very soon.
