The five round NT Pro Barra Series has been heralded the richest fishing tournament in Australia, with a cash prize pool of $50,000. With 50 teams of six, forking out $6000 to enter, the event will also be the biggest in the land. The prize money up for grabs outdoes traditional big money sports like golf, surpassing the Garden Park Pro-am which puts up $45,000. Speedways biggest drawcard, the Chariots of Thunder Series, falls outside the Top 10 with prize money of $28,000. RELIEF: Ana Ivanovic pumps her fist on her way to victory over Jelena Dokic yesterday. Picture: MARK CALLEJA Dokic sees bright side of Aussie Ana defeat ContinuedPage 39 By LAINECLARK in Brisbane HER bad luck with tournament draws may have continued, but Jelena Dokic could only see good fortune ahead after being knocked out of the Brisbane International yesterday by Ana Ivanovic. It was not Australias day at the WTA event, with Dokics Fed Cup teammate Casey Dellacqua also losing in the first round 6-2 0-6 7-6 (7-1) to Kazakhstani qualifier Sesil Karatantcheva. But comeback queen Justine Henin was all smiles after disposing of Russian second seed Nadia Petrova 7-5 7-5 at Pat Rafter Arena. Dokic the player who once famously claimed the Australian Open draw was rigged bowed out to a big-name player in the first round of the Brisbane WTA event for the second time in as many years. But Dokic, 26, was hardly blowing up after the 7-5 1-6 6-3 loss to the Serbian third seed, even drawing comparisons with the lead-up to her golden run at the 2009 Australian Open. Late News BRISBANE: Top seedAndy Roddick started 2010 in style with a straight sets 7-6 (7-5) 6-2win over Australian Peter Luczak in the Brisbane International last night.
