Jelena in race attack

JELENA Dokic has been racially abused by a group of Croatian men in an ugly confrontation allegedly linked to inflammatory remarks made by her estranged father, Damir.

Former world No.4 Dokic, boyfriend Tin Bikic and coach Borna Bikic were surrounded by an angry gang in Zagreb, Croatia, after a training session.
The group allegedly jostled the Australian Olympian and made a string of anti-Serbian comments before throwing fruit juice at the former star, Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List reported yesterday.

The taunts were reportedly made in reprisal for one of several Damir Dokic rants against Croatia and his recent unfounded claim his daughter had been kidnapped by the Bikic brothers, who are Croatian.

Dokic was said to have been uninjured in the incident, but traumatised.
The former Sydneysider now lives in Zagreb.

Born in Belgrade, Serbia, Dokic returned to Australian colours in January after representing Serbia and Montenegro for five years.

Dokic, now wallowing at 586th in the world, has moved to sever ties with her buffoon father.

Dokic senior emigrated with his family to Sydney in 1994 as Jelena's stellar junior career peaked with a ranking of world No.1 and acclaim as the International Tennis Federation's world junior champion.

Nurtured by Sydney coaches and former grand slam greats Lesley Bowrey and Tony Roche, as well as Kim Warwick, Dokic's game blossomed before her father dragged her down."
