Friday, 08 July, 2005 - Cuneo
Miss Dokic and partner Tina Pisnik unfortunately lost to the Italian pair of Sara Errani and Giulia Gabba, 3-6, 3-6 in the quarterfinals of the International Country Club 2005 in Cuneo on Thursday evening. The following is the match report, which the tournament official website (internationalcountryclub.com) released last night:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
International Country Club - Tennis Women's Tour 2005
quarti di finale doppio femminile 7-7-2005 18:00 campo Centrale
Errani Sara / Gabba Giulia - Dokic Jelena / Pisnik Tina 6-3 6-3

Jelena Dokic, dopo essere uscita dal singolo, abbandona anche il torneo di doppio in coppia con la compagna Pisnik essendo stata eliminata dal doppio italiano formato da Sara Errani e Giulia Gabba. Le due italiane, seppur inferiori tecnicamente, hanno dimostrato di formare un doppio piu affiatato delle avversarie che hanno giocato solo a sprazzi, un po' come era gia successo nel singolo alla Dokic. Primo set a favore della coppia italiana, che conduce sempre nel punteggio e chiude 6-3. Secondo set quasi analogo al primo, quando dal 3-3 le italiane non sbagliano piu nulla mentre la Dokic e la Pisnik affondano la maggior parte dei loro colpi in rete e lasciano via libera a Gabba-Errani che cosi rimangono le uniche esponenti italiane in corso all'International Country Club.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thursday, 07 July, 2005 - Cuneo
Miss Dokic advanced to the quarterfinals in the doubles competition at the International Country Club 2005. She and partner Tina Pisnik upset the top seeded team of Eva Birnerova and Andreea Vanc, 4-6, 7-6 (6), 6-3 in Wednesday's first-round match, that was played from 7:00 p.m. (local time) on Court No.7 (moved from Center Court). They will next meet the Italian teenagers' team of Sara Errani and Giulia Gabba at today's evening session on Center Court. The match is due to begin at 6:00 p.m. (local time). The following is a short report on Wednesday's match. The tournament official website (internationalcountryclub.com) released it last night:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
International Country Club - Tennis Women's Tour 2005
ottavi di finale doppio femminile 6-7-2005 19:00 campo 7
Dokic Jelena / Pisnik Tina - Birnerova Eva / Vanc Andreea 4-6 7(8)-6(6) 6-3

Grande affluenza di pubblico nell'ultima partita del giorno. Ad aggiudicarsi il match, in tre set combattuti e spettacolari, e stata la coppia Dokic-Pisnik. Dopo un inizio in sordina Jelena ha cominciato a carburare ed grazie alla migliore doppista fino ad ora vista al torneo si e guadagnata un posto nei quarti di finale.

Wednesday, 06 July, 2005 - Cuneo
Miss Dokic could not advance to the 2nd round, falling to Conchita Martinez Granados of Spain in three sets, 4-6, 7-5, 0-6 in Tuesday's evening session at the International Country Club 2005 Banca Regionale Europea. It seems that the 29-year-old Spaniard was too consistent in the decider. The following is the match report in Italian, which the tournament official website (internationalcountryclub.com) announced:
------------------------------------------------------------------------
International Country Club - Tennis Women's Tour 2005
16esimi di finale singolo femminile 5-7-2005 18:00 campo Centrale
Martinez Granados Conchita - Dokic Jelena 6-4 5-7 6-0

Seconda sorpresa della giornata all'International Country Club di Cuneo. La serba Dokic, ex numero 3 del mondo, viene sconfitta in tre set dalla spagnola Conchita Martinez per la delusione del folto pubblico accorso al centrale del Country per assistere al match. La Dokic fa il bello e il cattivo tempo: gioca sempre sulle righe, e quindi quando i colpi rimangono in campo e irresistibile. Pero commette ancora troppi errori gratuiti, e per la Martinez e sufficiente cercare di tenere la palla in campo per quanto possibile ed aspettare che l'avversaria affondi la palla in rete o fuori dal campo. L'unico sussulto della Dokic e nel secondo parziale, quando sotto 5-3 infila quattro giochi consecutivi e si porta a casa il set. Poi pero ricomincia la serie di errori gratuiti, ed il match non ha piu storia.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday, 05 July, 2005 - Cuneo
The official website of the International Country Club 2005 Banca Regionale Europea announced the doubles main draw on Tuesday.

The match is due to start at 6:00 p.m. (local time) on Wednesday on Center Court.
