Publisher's Summary

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 number four. But, most importantly, how she survived her father, Damir Dokic, the tennis dad from hell.

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, the abuse she endured at the hands of her father and her heartbreaking fall from the top. Jelena never told anyone the full truth of what she went through until now, and her unbreakable spirit will inspire you.

Awful!

I was so interested in hearing from Jelena herself about her life. Firstly, the abuse from her father and then how her life has been once she extricated herself from him.
Ugh! What a disappointing book this is. The first two thirds is a never ending list of match after match interspersed with verbal and physical abuse from her revolting father. On and on and on. Over and over.
When she runs off with her then partner, the book improves a little, as they do a few things other than tennis, but he is a control freak and they break up.
From then to the end, she is complaining about having a lack of money, her tennis going downhill and injuries.
I cannot understand how this has gotten so many great reviews!

Tough listen.

This is a tough listen. I’m not going to lie. But Jelena deserves to have her story listened to as she has been a silent victim for so long.

Bringing this story to light connects so many confusing dots over her time in the spotlight. I understand her now and deeply hope her healing continues.

Jelena is a true champion on and off the court.

What a Life

Terribly sad what Jelena had to endure not only from her father and mother but also from those that turned a blind eye and those that bullied and deliberately behaved badly towards her. Her determination to keep going and to be where she is now is just amazing.

Brave Woman

This is a well written story of horrific times a child endured. I am pleased Jelena has told her story. I hope this opens people's eyes, and alerts us all to act if we suspect abuse is occurring to our neighbours!

A life exposed

The fact that Jelena is self reflective, positive and doesn’t want the readers sympathy goes a long way to me admiring her resilience. At times it felt like the narrative of tournaments could be a bit shortened but the sense of the hard, busy and ever travelling life of a tennis player shone through by hearing about so many and where they were. An interesting life story and a good expose for understanding the drama that often surrounded Jelena.

Inspirational yet gut wrenching.

An amazing story of courage beyond that which most of us can imagine. I am sad that no one helped and I feel shame that my country showed such foul racism. Thought provoking to say the least.

Heartbreaking story

Very honest account of Jelena’s hardship and how she managed to survive. It helps to have a better understanding of her and her struggles.
