Damir dumps Jelena

THE volatile father of tennis star Jelena Dokic has severed all ties with her, a newspaper said.

"I never want to see (Jelena) again," Damir Dokic told The Sydney Morning Herald from Belgrade.

"She left us. We don't need her."

The paper said Mr Dokic blamed the feud on his 20-year-old daughter's relationship with Brazilian racing car driver Enrique Bernoldi, describing him as "that idiot".

"Everybody says he's a Formula One driver, but he is no-one, nothing. (Jelena) supports him," he told the paper.

Mr Dokic also described his decision to relocate his family from Australia to Serbia and Montenegro in 2001 as his "biggest mistake".

JELENA Dokic admitted she wasn't quite used to being without her father.

Good Riddence.

Maybe Jelena will become a better woman because of this.

Damir Dokic is a toad and Jelena is better off without him. I hope this won't affect her as a tennis player cause he really isn't worth the fuss!

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I wonder what Father's Day gift Damir will get from Jelena? Honestly, Jelena is much better off. Her father is a complete loser who has done nothing, but sponge off of his daughter's talent. Ironically, Damir has accused Jelena's boyfriend of doing the same. Perhaps Damir is a little peeved that he no longer has a daughter to use and abuse.

I've been in Jelena's situation. She may feel awkward now, but in time, she will be much happier without her father.

oh, but that is sad to hear a father say about his daughter.
I agree that Jelena is better off without her abusive father in the mix. but it must sadden her too, to not have a good relationship with him.

I hope that in the future they are able to have some sort of rapprochement. mainly for Jelena's sake.

I guess the clown has finally realized that the circus has closed and the clown is bitter. I feel for all of them, any family that goes through this kinda drama is always hurting in more ways than one. I think he should have tried to improve her relations with her peers and instead she missed australian open twice cos of him.

I think she should have just played tennis instead of the drama. Now it makes sense as to why she plays so much, it's better than being in that damm house with him for any length of time, huh?

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

I think that having her father out of her life will be very benificial for Jelena, although I am sure that this has to be very hard for her. However, Damir was more of a liability than a father, because he put so much attention on himself that Jelena had to constantly defend his actions instead of concentrating on her tennis. Now with him out of her life Jelena will hopefully be able to put the focus back on her game and finally perform to her potential. Good luck to her!
