Tennis: Dokic, Krajicek reach Malaysian Open

Posted: 04 Mar 2011 02:39 AM PST

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Former star Jelena Dokic has reached her first semifinals in seven years by beating Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia 7-6 (4), 6-2 in the Malaysian Open on Friday.

Dokic was a former world No. 4 who drifted away from the tour from 2004 to 2008 then became the first wild card to reach a Grand Slam quarterfinal at the 2009 Australian Open in front of home fans.

The Croatian-born Dokic, ranked 91, hit seven aces against Jovanovski, the Serbian teen seeded eighth.

Michaella Krajicek of the Netherlands made it to her first semis on tour in six years by accounting for Luxembourg qualifier Anne Kremer 6-2, 6-3. It was the first win in three matches against Kremer for Krajicek, who knocked out defending champ Alisa Kleybanova on Thursday.

LONDON (AP) - A giant set of Olympic rings has been unveiled at one of London's busiest train stations with less than 17 months to go before the start of the 2012 Games.

The five multicolored aluminum rings - measuring 20 meters (66 feet) wide and 9 meters (30 feet) high and weighing 2,300 kilograms (5,070 pounds) - were suspended Thursday from the roof of a platform at St. Pancras International station in central London.

Olympic organizers will place more rings at other iconic landmarks across London over the course of the next year.

St. Pancras was selected as the first site because many visitors to the games will pass through the station on their way to the Olympic Park in east London.
