Out for atleast a fortnight…


She had to retire from Roland Garros and suffered an early exit from Wimbledon, blood tests revealed Jelena Dokic has mononucleosis.  Docs have told her to rest for at least a fortnight. Deeming her out until the end of July or beginning of August.  She said on the matter:

“I am disappointed to have to pull out of a couple of events but I am also relieved to finally know what was wrong,” Dokic said today.

 “It has been so frustrating since the French. My natural work ethic is to get on court and train hard with intensity. I just haven’t been able to do that, and until now, I didn’t know why.

 “This only makes me more determined to get everything right and work even harder as soon as I can get back on court, which will hopefully be in time for a good solid hard court lead up to the US Open,” she said.

I hope she gets back on her feet as soon as possible. 😦
