Exclamation Breaking News!

Dokic free to re-emerge in Australia

JELENA Dokic is finally free.

Having spent virtually all of her childhood and early adulthood living in fear, Dokic has at last managed to cut ties.

By relocating to Australia -- and putting even more distance between herself and her menacing father Damir -- Dokic has taken control of her life for the first time.

This is going to please a lot of people, me included!

This is a great result for Dokic and Tennis Australia as both have gone down hill quick since the split.

They should give Peng a citizenship instead of Dokic

Good article this one.

Under International Tennis Federation regulations, Australian citizen Dokic is free to play under the Australian flag at grand slams and other tournaments. "I am an Australian, I feel like an Australian and I want to play for Australia again," she said yesterday.

"Australia is such a great country, the people are amazing. I had tremendous support from a lot of people, I loved playing Fed Cup, it was a great experience for me, I got along with everyone.

I couldn't be happier about the news. I sincerely hope she gets welcomed back.

Wow great for Jelena! Hopefully she does manage to get a WC and stage a satisfying comeback at the AO...I wish her all the luck! I never knew the extent to which she must have suffered under her dad...very disturbing and sad...

Hopefully this is indeed a turning point in her life. Can't wait to see her back on the courts, we've had to miss her long enough.

Thank you, Elena
