Description

This is a story of Jelena Dokic's survival. How she survived as a refugee, twice. How she survived on the tennis court to become world No. 4. But, most importantly, how she survived her father, Damir Dokic, the tennis dad from hell.

Jelena was a prodigious talent, heralded as Australia's greatest tennis hope since Evonne Goolagong. She had exceptional skills, a steely nerve and an extraordinary ability to fight on the court. Off it she endured huge challenges; being an 'outsider' in her new country, poverty and racism. Still she starred on the tennis court. By 18, she was in the world's top 10. By 19, she was No. 4. The world was charmed by her and her story - a refugee whose family had made Australia home when she was eleven years old.

Jelena has not told a soul her incredible, explosive story in full - until now.

From war-torn Yugoslavia to Sydney to Wimbledon, she narrates her hellish ascent to becoming one of the best tennis players in the women's game, and her heart-breaking fall from the top. Her gutsy honesty will leave you in awe. Her fight back from darkness will uplift you. Most of all, Jelena's will to survive will inspire you.

    What a book a very very sad story what a brave and compassionate girl how she can forgive her father is beyond me. It is so true we just shouldn’t judge if you don’t know the full story. I wish Jelena a wonderful life with Tin and only hope she can be happy and healthy now.

    Wow - what a read! Loved every minute of reading this book! My heart was broken at times (a lot of times) and at other times i was proud as punch at what Jelena has achieved and overcome! You are truly a strong independent woman! Well done for escaping the torture and for what you went through along the way I’m sorry! No child or adult should ever have to endure what you went through! Keep your head held high! X

    Amazing but sad book depicting the life of Jelena. If you’re a tennis fan you need to read this. Covers all of her career and you really get a good understanding of the pressure and violence she suffered.

    I could not put this book down. The hair stood up on my neck when I read of the comeback and win at the Aust Open. What a strong girl and what a sad upbringing. How sad for the father and mother too, to miss so much of what happiness and success could bring .
