Do­kic makes it to fi­nal

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

JE­LENA Do­kic reached her first WTA fi­nal since 2003 fol­low­ing a straight-sets vic­tory over Michaella Krajicek at the Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur. The Aus­tralian broke her Dutch op­po­nent twice in both sets to com­plete a com­fort­able 6-2 6-3 semi­fi­nal vic­tory in just over an hour. ‘‘ I tried to re­ally neu­tralise her serve and re­ally move her around the court and dic­tate, be­cause I don’t think she likes that,’’ she said af­ter­wards. ‘‘ I think I did it well.’’ World No. 91 Do­kic will be play­ing her first fi­nal since the 2003 Zurich event. Do­kic was to face Czech num­ber five seed Lu­cie Sa­farova in last night’s fi­nal.
