There are rumors floating around that her new coach could be Goran Prpic (Davis Cup coach of former Yugoslavia). So no more Borna Bikic. Good decision me thinks! :cool:

Also she will push back her season start. So no Thailand for this year.

Good for no Bikic, he needs to leave young tennis players alone. :tape:
Hopefully Jelena can find her game again.

15.01.2005.16:50Poslednja informacija iz Hrvatske: Jelena se na teren vraća krajem februara...

Prenosimo informaciju koju nam je dostavila saradnica Iris, a pravi izvor je Serbian Cafe:

Istina je (iz pouzdanih izvora, prijateljska veza sa Bikićima) da je Jelena Dokić zaručena za Tina Bikića i venčanje se planira za jesen u Zagrebu. Takodje je istina da Tin Bikić nije trener Jelene Dokić već joj je sparing partner i zaručnik s kojim živi u njegovom stanu na zagrebackoj Trešnjevci, a Jelena trenutno trenira na teniskim terenima "Ravnice". Takođe, Jelena Dokić je u pregovorima da za trenera uzme Gorana Prpića (nekada Davis Cup reprezentativca bivše Jugoslavije, kasnije Hrvatske). Inače Goran Prpić je saradjivao s Varaždinkom Karolinom Šprem godinu i po dana i doveo ju je sa 238. pozicije na WTA listi na 17. poziciju. Inače, Jelena je uspešno operisala krajnike u zagrebačkoj bolnici "Merkur" i na teniske terene se vraća krajem februara.



Can anyone translate the whole thing? :angel: I know it probably doesn't say much and vutt has already mentioned the important info but I'd still like to know. ;)

Thanks. :) :tape: I wonder what Damir has to say about the engagement.

:confused: She want to play in Antwerp? Isn't she playing in Hyderabad the week before? :o Bad scheduling me thinks.

Me ;) thinks she won't play there. probably will start current season in Europe.

Well that is more likely. ;) I just hope she sorts out her family problems and just have some fun out there on court. And hopefully she has got a nice clothing sponsor, because even if she doesn't do well at least she'll look hot. :drool:

Well it apears that pice of information was little bit incorrect. She's going to play in Thailand after all. Now I wonder if new coach talks are not accurate as well? :confused:

King Aaron

Is anything ever accurate with Jelena? :confused: :sad: Well all the best to her, hopefully she's in great form both mentally and physically.

K. Is she playing? Because she is on the latest entry lists for Pattaya City and Hyderabad... :confused:

...and as it turns out that new coach talk was also BS. She's still with Borna. At least he seems to be with her in Hyderabad.

next time I will think twice before posting news from that web page :mad:

It says Jelena is supposed to marry Tino Bikic this autumn, and that he is not her coach, only her hitting partner and that she is negotiating with Goran Prpic, ex-Sprem's coach.

However, this info was originally published on one of the Serbian message boards, through "reliable" sources. :tape:

Thanks Joana. Yes I did know that. I read translation from other board.

And still I was hoping for nice clean start after break this year. That she will try something new in order to overcome her problems.

OK I admit "BS" was little bit strong word maybe, because it might turn out that Borna is just her hitting partner indeed. However I kind of feel that he have always been just hitting partner and have very little contributed to her game, so in that sense I do not see rapid changes I was secretly hoping for this year... :(

My sentiments exactly. Borna doesn't seem to be more than a hitting partner. :(
