Question Is Anja Dokic related to Jelena?

Quick question for Aussies fans?

Re: Is Anja Dokic related to Jelena?

Why do people always when see two players with the same last name think that they are related?

Ikr

Now it will get interesting when (arguably) one of the world's best 12 year olds, Ekaterina Makarova, makes the top 100.

Re: Is Anja Dokic related to Jelena?

Question actually have sense, because Dokic is not so often surname for Serbs, and there is also bizarre coincidence that like Jelena, this girl Anja also belong to Serbian diaspora in Australia.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Funnily enough, I knew of a few Dokic's around Oz. The Serb population here is reaalllyyy big.

She is definitely not her sister but it is possible they are related, especially becuase Anja also lives in Australia.

becuase Jelena Dokic moved to Australia a few yrs before that
sometimes people moving to another country are joined by relatives (as they are leaving a country in turmoil)
same last name
both play tennis

but Dokic may be a popular name?

That's true, but in most cases the family would move to the same city at least. Jelena's family moved to Sydney whereas Anja's family is on the other side of the country in WA.

Still it does not mean anything, there is a lot of Serbs In Australia and if someone of them have the same last name like I, that does not mean he is my relative.

Also, if I'm a surgeon it does not mean that my cousin (son of my uncle) should be a surgeon.

I love my hater he makes me feel greater
