I see her in the draw. Did they give her a wildcard ?

She qualified for it. Won all her matches in qualifying!

After your post I double checked the Australian Open web site and she was not in the qualifying tournament. So I googled around.

She was given direct entry in the 2009 tournament with a wildcard after winning some Australian wild card playoff mini-tourney:

Watch out ! Dokic is giving quietly staging a shocking come back.

Very impressed with her all court play against higher seed playa- dispatching Anna C and Caroline Wozniacki
