Lucic's dad has got to be included in this poll :tape:

Honestly I couldnt really answer the question who was worse of these, I dont truly know (in detail) any of the specific situations so any opinion would just be based on speculation. I'm gonna say Damir since I hate him the most. At least Jim and Mary have a decent relationship now.

Damir Dokic was worse, because at least Pierce got results! :devil:

But Samantha Stevenson was worse than either, for instilling in her daughter a false sense of greatness!

Now we're talking... I love this thread. Jim Pierce reportedly use to attack Mary, and had been seen throwing a racket bag at her.

Damir was accused of attacking Jelena and this was the reason to her having to get nose surgery.

Please do correct me if Im wrong, I've just read all this in papers over the years.

trust me, that's complete BS!
However I would not rule out old school parenting by Damir when she was yonger.

Well, commentators have said what I wrote about Mary before. And the Jelena thing was written all over the papers back in Feb 04.

First of all she denied it and second of all I remember reading somewhere that the problem which forced her to have nose surgery could not be caused by physical abuse.

Jim Pierce, hands down. He used to physically and verbally attack Mary. At least Damir didnt shout "Kill that bitch!" to Jelena, unlike Jim...

I'll go with Mr. Dokic.

He really did bully Jelena and terrify her I think. There were reports that after she lost at the Wimbledon SF in 2000 she was afraid to leave the tournament site, as she didn't know what he would say or do.

Also, her allegations of Australia rigging draws against her and stuff all came from him, and she was too afraid to contradict him. Even now he continues to make stuff up about her and threaten her through the press. This is not good parenting.

I think Mary has now made some kind of peace with her father, so well done to her for taking control and managing to re-establish a relationship with him after a few years of no contact.

I have also heard terrible things about Mr. Lucic...

Whoever mentioned Samantha Stevenson was right on the money, that woman is a nightmare who created all sorts of problems for her daughter in the locker room over her unsubstantiated outbursts (racism, predatory lesbians, that she was going to win Wimbledon on her first try etc), but I don't think she abused her daughter, just loved her too much and projected all her hopes and ambitions on to her.

Who else? Richard Williams certainly has embarrassed his daughters at times, but I don't think anyone doubts that he is a good father and loves his daughters deeply, only wanting what is best for them.

Melanie Molitor has been accused of isolating her daughter Martina Hingis from the rest of the tour, as did Peter Graf with Steffi. These things probably helped their daughters gain a mental edge, but did not help them be happy people.

How about that guy who drugged his children's opponents in French junior tournaments, and went to jail earlier this year??

What was the deal with Mr. Linetskaya? What happened?

Jelena had a nose job? Is that why her career went down the pan, they screwed up her aerodynamics and now she can't move fast?

The Jelena nose thing had nothing to do with Damir. It just goes to show how ridiculous some of the stories they come up with concerning Jelena are. :o She had a deviated septum which made breathing through her nose more complicated than it should have been, so she had it fixed. I had the same thing.
