My Last Thread On Dokic: What Was Her "Comeback" All About?

After this one I will never post another thread on Dokic, I promise.

Since it's now obvious that she's back into hiding and not playing anytime soon I am interested in some speculation (with Dokic, it's always just that) on what her trip to Australia was all about. Because I don't really get it.

First of all, was she initially serious about wanting to play again full-time?

If yes, when do you think did she get derailed, and at what point did she give up completely, and what were the reasons? What was her real mindset after she lost in the AO qualifying, or when she left Australia? Or do you think it all has to do with mental issues, like depression for example?

If no, what do you think was her real motivation to go through this ordeal? The money, because she's broke? A place to live for a few months? Just a vacation, or a weight-loss program?

Please post your thoughts on this matter.

Unlikely, in my opinion.

Her comeback in January was so promising, with top 100 wins and everything.

Now she is becoming a regular no-show on the ITF circuit again, and not even entering the Aussie 25ks with poor fields where she can get some wins.

I'm sorry everyone. Dokic is done. For the final time.

i think the comeback was all about altruism. she sensed your life was very empty and felt by coming back she would give you something to obsess about and hence a reason to live

I don't know what's up with her... but she doesn't seem serious about putting in the work.

Well if that was true then she was even more altruistic than you realise. After all, you are quite busy being obsessed with myself, so Dokic's comeback gave you more reason to follow me around and by that some meaning to your life.

she lost 15 kilos in 3 months. that would have been easy as has been said she also beat 3 top 100 players during the Australian summer having not played competitive tennis for a very long time.

i'm not a particularly big fan or anything but i'll give her at least until mid year to make some noise. she is very injury prone so it's not all about laziness in my opinion.

Yup, certainly an advisable strategy to sit out another 6 months after playing for just a few weeks.
You are a riot.

You know what I mean, so don't act dumber than you already are.
If she's not playing now, well I think it tells us all we need to know. Only deluded fanboys would have to wait until mid year to have confirmed what is already crystal-clear.
