So Sad as Former tennis star suffers eye injury in Fernando Alonso Australian GP incident

Former world number four tennis star Jelena Dokic suffered an eye injury after Fernando Alonso’s Aston Martin sent the gravel flying at Albert Park.

As drivers looked to get to grips with the track during Friday practice, Alonso found himself getting all out of shape through Turn 10, kicking the gravel up into the air as he powered through and returned to the tarmac. And that stray gravel left Dokic requiring treatment on her right eye

“When you go to the Formula One weekend at the Australian Grand Prix and a car going off track happens right in front of you, literally and all the rock debris flies right into your eye,” Dokic posted.

“Fernando Alonso ran off the track and the rock debris that you see flying off the back wheels went straight into my right eye.

“Had to get treated for it but all good. Just a bloodshot and scratched eye. I will survive.

“Amazing and quick work by the paramedic at Mercedes-AMG Lounge. Thank you all that took care of me. I am all good. Ready to watch some more F1.
