Dokic: My return would be a 'great thing for Australian tennis'
May 28 2003 - From www.smh.com.au
Jelena Dokic, the 10th seed from Serbia and Montenegro, made a winning start to her French Open campaign yesterday and admitted that she was tempted by an offer to return to play again for Australia.
Tennis Australia had said that it would welcome the 20-year-old back to play for it in next year's Athens Olympics, and she revealed that she was seriously considering it.
Dokic had vowed never to represent Australia again after she severed ties with her adopted country more than two years ago over media clashes with her notorious father Damir.
But she could change her mind after being told she was ineligible to represent Serbia and Montenegro, formerly Yugoslavia, in Athens next year.
"I'm sure they (Tennis Australia) would love me to go back. I think it would be a great thing for Australian tennis too. I'm thinking about it," said Dokic after she advanced to the second round here with a 6-4 6-4 win over German newcomer Angelika Roesch.
"It's in my mind and a thing that I would consider.
"The Olympics is still a year away, but within six months it would have to be decided whether to play Fed Cup and Olympics.
"I'd love to play the Olympics again. It only happens every four years.
"It's not a huge thing in tennis. You're going more for the Grand Slams, but it's just a great event just to mix with other athletes, other people."
Dokic was a semi-finalist in the Sydney Olympics and lost the bronze medal match to Monica Seles of the United States.
"It's something that I'm keeping to myself. If I decide to do it I will do it myself, no one else will push me into it. I would have to feel comfortable first of all," said Dokic, who next meets Slovenia's Tina Pisnik.

Dokic Flags Aussie Return
By Patrick Miles
May 28, 2003
JELENA DOKIC, the erstwhile Australian, last night declared she is considering a return to the country that nurtured her as a young player.
"It's in my mind," she said in Paris last night after her 6-4 6-4 first-round win over Germany's Angelika Roesch. "It's something that I will definitely consider."
Dokic is playing at Roland Garros as a representative of Yugoslavia, which the International Tennis Federation has failed to recognise so far as Serbia-Montenegro.
It must be confusing even for the player who was born, it is claimed, in Belgrade then played the Fed Cup and the 2000 Olympics for Australia, to where her family had emigrated in 1994. After the 2001 Australian Open, when Dokic lost to Lindsay Davenport in the first round, her father, Damir, insisted that the draw had been fixed and decided to take his family back to Europe via their residence in Saddlebrook, Florida.
Dokic has yet to return to Australia but now that she has removed herself from the influence of her father, whose hall of shame at tournaments around the world is well documented, it appears that she is warming to the idea of reverting to her Australian passport, which she still holds.
Not one to underestimate her talents, Dokic, the world No.10, said: "I'm sure they would love me to go back. I think it would be a great thing for Australian tennis, also."
A recent report suggested that Dokic wanted to play at next year's Olympic Games in Athens and the only way she could enter would be as an Australian.
Tennis Australia said it was monitoring her situation and that she would be welcome should she choose to return.
Dokic said last night she was surprised to learn of the report because "I made no comments" but that she was "considering it".
She said she would have to make a decision within six months to qualify for the Olympics "but not now".
"I'd love to play the Olympics," she said. "I played it once already and I was young. It was a good experience for me."
Dokic is being accompanied in Paris by her Brazilian boyfriend Enrique Bernoldi, who races in the Formula Nissan series in Japan and is on the verge of a drive in Formula One, where he has competed before.
It has been widely reported that Dokic's relationship with Bernoldi has greatly upset her father, who announced recently that he had severed ties with his daughter.
It is safe to assume that Dokic began to feel, especially since she turned 18, that her father was becoming a liability. He was expelled from Wimbledon and the US Open for disruptive and abusive behaviour and was prone to ranting in public.
In the past two years the player has matured, physically and mentally, and observers believe strongly that her friendship with Bernoldi has been a positive and steadying influence.
Asked if she had been in contact with TA about the Fed Cup, Dokic said: "They just made some comments that I might be playing. Like I said, it's something that I'm thinking about myself. No-one else is going to influence my decision."
