So Dokic is without a coach...

Recent reports claim she's on her own now, and that she isn't looking for a permanent coach right now. And even if she did find one, it would take a while to establish a permanent arrangement.

Now, as much as I hate the guy, I think she should get together with Gilbert (who was dumped himself recently). Yes, he is an obnoxious prick, but I truly believe he can put her game back on track.

What do you guys think? Whom should she seek out?

I cant give a specific name, but she needs someone to help her, she isnt going work her way back up on her own. I just hope she gets someone with a good reputaton, knows tennis, and someone who Jelena is comfortable with and can confide in.

I agree. I think Brad would be great for Jelena.

I don't think Brad would be good for Jelena. But my idea probably wouldn't work either...Monica Seles

Jelena Dokic, Daniela Hantuchova, Marion Bartoli, Elena Dementieva

that explains while Jelena is now winning matches.

She is better off away from those brothers, really they must be the worst coaches in wta history.

I don't know if the rumours are true, but it seems that Karolina got in a slump when she was related to them.

Not precisely a great coaching record if you ask me.

i think jelena really does need a coach. Someone she is comfortable with and someone that understands "her situation"

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

I thik Borna Bikic still travels with her. She just does not call him coach any more.

Damir Dokic brought her to the top, so he's the best coach for jelena.

I think she better getting a coach soon. Otherwise it will be a greater free fall than this one.

Smells like Kvitova spirit
