What a comeback story this has been for Jelena Dokic, but she is not the only one smiling. There is no question that her winning performance to date at this year’s Australian Open is certainly helping to keep Channel Seven ahead in the ratings. On Sunday night an average of 1.8 million* viewers tuned into watch her down Russian player Alisa Kleybanova, with just under 2 million* people tuning in at 10:30pm to watch her hit the winning back hand down the line.
Not surprisingly Channel Seven dominated the ratings across that night, and are expected to do so again tonight when she goes up against 3rd seed Dinara Safina.
Good Luck Jelena, Australia will be watching!
