Former world No. 4 Jelena Dokic tells The Australian that she will attempt to rejoin the tour next month. The 30-year-old Dokic hasn’t played a match since April 2012 and underwent wrist surgery last year. A former Wimbledon semifinalist, she doubts that her comeback will include a visit to the All England Club.

"I don't think so. I have been out for too long," Dokic said. "I am starting with smaller events to get some more matches. Then I will see where I am at. At this stage, it is all about being healthy.”
