He sounds like Floyd, Floyd was always ranting about how everyone was gay in Hollywood, he was even warning me against Thelma Ritter! Half the reason I moved back to Carrollton with him is so he'd shut the hell up about it.

He is sick indeed!!!

However. He spoke about her work ethic. Interesting! Heinz complained about the same thing.

And it was kind of interesting to hear that she's traveling as Aussie!! ;)

This guy seriously scares me :bolt:. He did mention some true & interesting things, but the man is seriously twisted. He doesn't know how to answer a questions. For example, when he was asked why Jelena is loosing so many matches, he reacted by saying half of the girls on the WTA are lesbians. WHAT?? Where the hell did that come from? All the interviewer asked was, why Jelena is struggling that's it. It just agrevates me cause u can tell (through the interview) that Damir has serious psychological problems. He really shouldn't be bad-mouthing his daughter like that, when he(seems) has more problems, then she does :rolleyes::(

That's quite bizarre how he blames lesbians, as I don't see what they have to do with Jelena's problems. Later he blames her boyfriends -- some racist comments about Brazilians, and denounces her Croatian coach as a fascist! LOL.

He's a complete and utter lunatic. Fun to read though:

Listen to me! I am a very good friend with Mark Philippoussis, as well as with his father, whom is a very good friend of mine. On WTA Tour, girls have no escort. Either lesbians or managers, who steal money from them, surround them. You can see Martina Navratilova back on courts. Why? So she can help make that lobby stronger. I will mention Amelia Island tournament. This is one of my favorite tournaments. Once I was in the garden, drinking, smoking my cigarettes, when around 2am I saw 4-5 tennis players holding their hands. When I told to world that there are 50% of lesbians in tennis, no one believed me!

I have a fealing that no matter where her boyfriends were from he would make some rediculous comment about them:rolleyes:

I could take it, until...

I see she got some Brazilian guy, some jerk from a Brazilian village. Those people are savages!

No way! Enrique Bernoldi is way too cool, I know his career for many years and he's always been too cool. Damir is racist.

Maybe I will try to search for her, and on one nice way, on force, I am not saying to kidnap her, bring her back home.

Err.. take her back on force, yet no kidnapping her? I sense contradiction... or maybe just plain trying to deny the fact :tape:

And how did she see them before? How when they killed her grandfather? How, when they destroyed her grand grandparent’s grave? I have those pictures

Even if this is true, it's way too strong to be said this way. Lunatic.

Helen Lawson

Well, he isn't all bad, he said Jelena can have any boyfriend she wants, even if he had "no eyes and one leg."

He blames everyone but himself. Sure you could question Jelena's work ethic, but her situation is much much deeper than a poor work ethic. Damir has scarred Jelena emotionally and that isn't easy to deal with and quite frankly Jelena isn't dealing wiith it well. If he truly cared, he would keep his mouth shut, get help for his drinking and temper and make a serious effort to change things with his daughter. Instead all he does is blab to the media. The guy is a complete asshole

Definitely not playing with a full deck. I saw him back in 2002 at Amelia Island with Jelena, sitting outside the players' area smoking a cigar and glaring. Not someone I'd like to meet in a dark alley.

In retrospect, you should have tailed him that day, and into the night when he was in that garden. You apparently would have gotten an eyefull!

what is he is basically saying is that jelena was his property and that he did whatever it took to make her top player (make some money). it is very obvious that poor girl was not only mentaly but phisicaly abused by this SOB!

twisted, perverted MF!!

My God, that man is frightening, bordering on disgusting. It's amazing Jelena is playing tennis instead of residing in a mental hospital. Just twisted, twisted, twisted.

OMG Its hilarious how he refers the Brazillian as a savage and Tino and Borna as the devil itself :haha: Great interview.

The article said Jelena was living in Monte Carlo, but the WTA site said she trains in Saddlebrook, Florida. A few weeks ago someone mentioned that they saw her training in Florida. Also I thought she had left Tino and Borna. I'm somewhat confused. Where is she living, and who coaches her?

She lives in both places. She did leave Tino and Borna

OMG That idiot is living in the past. :retard: :cuckoo: Thank goodness he left the country! In the beginning, I was pissed at the family for taking so much from Aus Tennis, but now... I don't care. Jelena seems to be getting herself together, away from her father, and that's the main thing. Kudos to her for dating a "Savage from the village" :lol: I guess not every woman wants to find a man just like her father:yeah:

No, Jelena isn't getting her life together. She is a mess. Looking at her at the US Open just made me want to cry. She looks like she is on the edge of a nervous breakdown. She needs to step away from tennis and get her life in order. She can't accomplish anything on the tennis court when she isn't there mentally and right now she isn't. Her life is far more important than tennis.

No need to make "faces". I'm pretty sure that more than half of this board is to some extent about girls, skirts and looks. :wavey:

I've been on this match, just opposite of Damir. Second round of Wimby... She trashed poor girl in 44 mins!.. I was quite upset i got to see her for only 44 mins!

I've heard people say on this board that Damir physically abused his family, but where is the evidence of this? I've heard nothing about it. Is it just something people make up because they dont like his controversial comments?

I think such allegation is made in 'Venus Envy' book 2 or 3 years ago, when Jelena appeared on training sesion after one of her loses sporting a blue eye, claiming something stupid happened to her...


To bmxbandit, the match was against Jennifer Hopkins, 2 round of Wimbledon 2001. i think jelena won 6-2 6-4 or something like that!

Thanks. People talk about it like it is a fact, but it seems there is no evidence. People do have accidents. It was in the same way that the allegations against Richard Williams came out, but that didnt seem to be true either. Posters on here should stop talking about it like it is a fact that hes been convicted, because they are very serious allegations.

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if hit physically abused Jelena and just because it isn't out in the open doesn't mean that it didn't happened. He could;ve threatened her even more if she said anything. The guy has serious anger, mental and drinking issues. He threatened a cashier in the players cafeteria of the US Open a few years ago. Do I know for a fact that he has physically abused Jelena? No. Still I don't think it is far-fetched. Damir isn't one to have so called accidents. The guy is a raging lunatic

At the 1998 Australian Open juniors, Jelena and her brother were taken into custody for 48 hours after police were called because onlookers said they saw Damir hit Jelena.

i heard here in serbia that damir lives alone near novi sad, and that jelena's mother and brother live in belgrade. they do communicate with damir, but don't live together. i am not sure why they don't live with him.
