from index.hr

SRBIJANSKA tenisačica Jelena Dokić mogla bi zaigrati za hrvatsku žensku tenisku reprezentaciju. Naime, izbornica naše Fed Cup reprezentacije, Iva Majoli, najavila je kako će pozvati Jelenu da se pridruži hrvatskoj reprezentaciji.

Majoli je, piše slovenski portal siol.net, nedavno u Zagrebu izjavila kako se uskoro planira naći s Jelenom Dokić, koja već neko vrijeme živi u Hrvatskoj nakon što je pobjegla od svog ludog oca Damira.

"Očekujem razgovor s Jelenom i vjerujem da će zaigrati za hrvatsku reprezentaciju. Ona je iz Osijeka i mora igrati za nas, a ne za Srbiju i Crnu Goru. Budući da je sama izabrala život u Zagrebu, mislim da je sve jasno." - kazala je Majoli.

Some translation:

Serbian tennis player Jelena Dokic might play for Croatian representation. Iva Majoli will invated Jelena to play for Croatian representation.

Majoli have said that she wants to talk to Jelena who lives now in Croatia because she left her crazy father.

I want to talk with Jelena and I believe that she will play for Croatian representation. She is from Osijek ( Croatia ) and she should play for Croatia not for Serbia Montenegro. She have now decided to live in Zagreb, it is all clear, Majoli told.

And as someone said looks like she's at two places at the same time. in Zagreb and Belgrade, again. Maybe she has a teleport with herself :lol: :lol:

perhaps majoli could become her coach. may not be so bad after all!

I don't see how it matters what team Jelena plays for. Even if she decides to play for Croatia, once her Dubai points come off this week she'll be the #8 ranked Croatian. That's not even good enough to be asked to be the benchwarmer.

Even now she's only the #3 ranked Serb. She has to count on Jankovic or Ivanovic not being able to play Fed Cup in order for her to have a chance to play.

If she doesn't win a match between now and Miami, she'll be ranked #360.

she changes country every 5 mins, wish she would pick one and stay with it!
Shouldn't rules apply in this situation about country changes, just it is the 3rd one but hey maybe third time lucky!

i don't think this is thrue.
The only thing where she have to think on is playing tennis again. How low is she now ? 300 ? That's terrible for a former no. 4 in the world.

i just look at the rankings on www.wtatour.com and she's on place 209

Feb 26th, 2005, 04:57 PM
Yeah, right ...

And anyway i think Croatia at the moment has 4 better players than Dokic (if the best decide to play)

I hope that it's just one more rumour. It would be such a disaster to play for Croatia after playing for Serbia.
Does anyone know when Dokic is playing next time?
