Description

Unbreakable 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.

    After finishing this book, I was overwhelmed by a feeling that Australia owes Jelena an apology. This country failed her. Nobody bothered to ask the hard questions and help Jelena, instead we used her father for our own amusement. Then we turned our backs on her. But what is so amazing is Jelena's strength and positive spirit. She has overcome more obstacles than anyone should ever face, but still counts herself as lucky. Jelena is truly inspirational. Despite the fact that she has been in the public eye for 20 years, this book feels like an introduction to the real Jelena (and she seems like the type of person you'd love to have a coffee with!). This book is an honest and raw account of triumph in the most adverse of circumstances. Jelena really is "unbreakable".
