Marina Erakovic will look to get over her Olympic blues when she plays Britain's Anne Keothavong in the first round of the WTA US$220,000 Texas Open in Dallas.

Erakovic was crushed 6-2 6-1 by Canadian Aleksandra Wozniak in the opening round of the Olympics last month and will look to find some form before the US Open commences in New York next week.

The last time Erakovic played Keothavong was in Carlsbad in July where the 24-year-old won in straight sets.

In doubles Erakovic will team up with Brit Heather Watson. The last time they combined they won the title at Stanford.

They play the American combination of Elizabeth Lumpking and Yasmin Schnack.

Erakovic has a current WTA singles ranking of 53 and doubles ranking of 52.

Erakovic is expected to play both of her first rounds tomorrow (New Zealand time).
