Petkovic demolishes Dokic's dream.

Jelena Dokic has crashed out of the Brisbane International 6-0 6-1 to German Andrea Petkovic in a severe blow to her confidence ahead of the Australian Open.

To her credit Dokic was injured, and obviously srtuggling on court to find rythm.

This match was hard too watch as Petkovic and Dokic are both amoung my favourite players, it was great to see Petkovic so dominate but hard to watch Dokic struggling! We were lucky enough to see some classic Petko

Dokic had promised much better after she progressed through the first round of the tournament with a straight-sets victory over Russian Anastasia Pivovarova on Monday night.

Helped by a string of unforced errors from the crowd favourite, Petkovic took the first set in just 17 minutes, icing the 6-0 scoreline with an ace.

Dokic lost 10 straight games to be 4-0 down in the second set before breaking the German, who was previously guided by Dokic’s new coach Glenn Schaap.

But the world No.138 gave the break straight back as she conceded the last of her six double faults in the sixth game.

Petkovic easily closed out the match to set up a quarterfinal clash against Melbourne’s Jarmila Groth who upset top seed Samantha Stosur 6-2 6-4 on Tuesday night.

Fellow Australian Sally Peers lost to Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-4 6-1 the match right before Jelena's.

In Auckland Shuai Peng uspet Kuznetsova 2-6 6-4 6-4. Top seed Masha survived a 3-5 second set deficit to beat Renata Voracova 6-3 7-5 while second seeded Yanina Wickmayer is tied at set all against Sabine Lisicki 6-2 3-6.

Just because its worthy of being featured twice!
