Why does Dokic plays if she doesn't care?

What the hell is forcing her to play? She looks bored and like she doesn't want to be on the court? Seing her like that is

money. I think her father puts a lot of pressure on her to support the family.

But she doesn't even speak to her father. He said last week that they speak maybe for 1 -2 minutes every week.

That's the problem. Jelena has no support base in her life. She has little or no contact with any of her family and the closest thing she has to a friend is Borna and he is paid to stick around.

She's clearly undergoing depression issues off the court and unless she sorts her life off the court then I doubt we'll ever see her achieve her potential.

does she really need to have indepth conversations with him to feel pressure to support her mother and brother?

Not saying that's the reason.

but really if she was serious about getting her game back she would take a break and actually work on her game as opposed to flying here for 2-3 days, losing and then flying to the next city.

She really needs to sort out her personal life, cause it seems it's a real mess Either she makes up with her family (dad) or she breaks with them permanently without looking back. Just my opinion

Jelena, take a long break and don't come back before everything's sorted cause watching you play like that is too painful

You know today her attitude sucked so much I DIDNT CARE if she won or lost I just wanted to see a diffrent match. It was either a fucking uncredible winner or a howler. I just hope she can find some encouragement, some belief and snap out of this style of play, nobody can hit winners that soon in a rally, not even the Williams sisters. She can at least try for herself, and her fans.

What else is she going to do?Shes' played tennis most of her life,I can't imagine she has that many marketable skills for employers.

It would be nice to see her reach her tennis potential though.

Seriously, I don't understand why Jelly keeps playing while she doesn't give a shit... and it's really obvious when she feels like that.

She cares sometimes, so maybe she should just play less. I don't know.

Not traveling every week, just to play one pathetic match might help.

But, I really don't know.

Lord knows what goes on in that poor girl's head.

Well, I know she's picking up a paycheck everyweek for about an hour's worth of work, and that'd be motivation enough for me to do something, even if I didn't enjoy it!

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
