Dokic switches coach, again

Dokic switches coach, again

From correspondents in Zagreb
December 07, 2006
THE soap opera that is Jelena Dokic's tennis career has taken another twist with the former world No.4 fleeing the Munich-based academy of coach Nikola Pilic for the second time in a month.
The troubled Australian and Serbian tennis star, now ranked in the 500s, says she is back training with her former coach Borna Bikic, and eyeing a "return to the ... top 100".
"I'm returning to (coach) Borna Bikic, my former coach ... I'll try to return to the world's best," Dokic told daily newspaper 24Sata.
"I'm facing hard times and will have to be terribly strong."
The 23-year-old fled coach Pilic's Munich-based camp last month – prompting her estranged and incident-prone father Damir to claim she was abducted – only to return soon after.
Dokic, however, now claims she is simply not satisfied with the contract Pilic's academy offered her.
"We simply could not agree. That's the whole truth – the offer was anything but fair," she said.
Both Damir Dokic and Pilic blamed Borna Bikic and his brother, Jelena's boyfriend Tin Bikic, for her volatility.
"He (Pilic) should stay out of my private life. His statements disappointed me and what does he care, anyway," Dokic asked.
Asked whether she was considering making peace with her father to whom she does not speak at all, she tersely said: "That topic I will not touch."
Ranked fourth in the world in 2002, Dokic said that her goal for 2007 was to return and stay in the top 100.

Re: Dokic switches coach, again

this is getting a bit much. if only she had have taken that match point against Razzano at the Aus Open things may be quite different right now.

She really needs a coach like Tony Roache right now but i knowing him as i do i'm sure he'd have zero interest in the drama associated with her.

still hope for a good outcome though.

Re: Dokic switches coach, again

soap-opera is the right word for her life

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Dokic switches coach, again

I wish Jelena would change her name or something, I just hate her name now. It's all I ever hear on these boards. Perhaps Delena Jokic.

Re: Dokic switches coach, again

I have to admit to being a huge Dokic fan. But all of this just gets you wondering. What is the point anymore? Get your head straight Jelena. Then give me a call. I've had enough.

Re: Dokic switches coach, again

Apparently Jelena is looking to ditch Borna Bikic as her coach and get a new coach early next year but she has Bikic for now because she doesn't have enough time because next season is only a month away.

I really hope that you are right.....

Anyhow, dumb decision by Jelena in my eyes. But as I said before, I will never give up on her, until she herself gives up.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

She herself has stated that her season will not start in Australia, so I presume, that means we're talking several months before she competes competitvely again. Ahh get it together Jelena!

Re: Dokic switches coach, again

Bikic is the worst coach in the world. He has no brains, he just tells his players to hit as hard as they can. This was the worst thing Jelena could've done. I still stand by her though

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske
