Where has Dokic's money gone?
By Nikki Tugwell
05jan06

JELENA Dokic has won $5 million in prize money and has had a history of lucrative endorsement deals but the born-again Australian claims she is cash strapped and unable to afford a coach.

Last month 22-year-old Dokic enlisted the services of her former coach Lesley Bowrey who helped guide her to an Australian Open wildcard playoff win.



But she is parting ways with her coach of four years (from the age of 15-19), long-time supporter and mother-figure at a critical time of her career's revival for financial reasons.

"I don't know her financial position, she just said she couldn't really afford a coach and so that's where I have left it at," said Bowrey. "That's fine, she's got issues that I think she has to deal with and that's her business what she does. Maybe she wants to just try and do it on her own ... who knows?"



Tennis Australia offered to subsidise the arrangement, offering to pay for Bowrey's air fares with Dokic covering the cost of coaching fees.

It is estimated that Bowrey could command up to $3000 a week, which is significantly lower than Dokic can expect to pay for most other full-time private coaches.

The comeback tournament for Dokic in Auckland on Tuesday, without the support of a coach, mother or father, was disastrous with the flustered former world No.4 emotionally unsettled and playing predictable and one-dimensional tennis.

Bowrey did not watch the first-round loss to unseeded German Julia Schruff in Auckland and saw just a couple of points replayed on TV.

The world No.349 laughed and cried on her way to the 5-7 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 defeat which included 50 unforced errors and 28 double faults. She capitulated in the third set in just 20 minutes with her frustrations apparent as she exited the court.

"I know her game very well and I know how she reacts on court depending on pressure and there were many things she needed to work on and you pick those things up," Bowrey said.

"It is no big deal to me, I was just trying to help her out, particularly since she is pretty much travelling on her own now without her mum or her dad or any real support family-wise. But as far as I'm concerned now I have made other arrangements because Jelena went off to New Zealand by herself."

Dokic contacted Bowrey on her return to Australia in December and asked her to fly to Melbourne to help her through the wildcard play-offs for the Australian Open.

She was successful, winning the knockout competition and earning herself a grand slam invitation. At that point it is understood the pair made arrangements for Bowrey to coach Dokic through the Australian summer. "I only went [to Melbourne] because she asked me to go, that's where it started and ended," Bowrey said.

It got spent on anti-draw rigging devices....

Then she realised if her ranking was low, she wouldn't be able to get in the draw in the first place, rigged or not, d'oh! Time to grab some cheap help then throw it away!

Theyre always a joke. Crying poverty when theyre down to their last million. Then they declare themselves bankrupt. Skint my hole. Most of them live in homes we couldn’t afford for starters. They'd learn ya!

LOL! Well, she could get a quick $20,000 anyway. I seriously doubt anyone'd fork over anywhere near $500,000 to get a topless pic or two of JD.

I've seen her mug all over posters in France in windows dressed up all sexy (albeit, like 4-5 years ago), so I think at least in Europe she could land some major money for a (tasteful) nude spread.

I've always believed her Dad siphoned off her money to Serbian terrorist organizations, and the reason her game went downhill was a passive aggressive response. She couldn't go against them overtly, but if she played like crap, at least she wasn't giving money to murderers.

Can I back that belief up with facts? Absolutely not. But the question is where I BELIEVE her money has gone, not where I can PROVE her money is gone.

definitely one of the more novel ideas i've read around here. Did you just make that theory up, or you really believe it might hold some water?

My frtiends trust me with their children, yet universally believe I'm a psycho. I HAVE to differentiate between what I prove, and what I believe. If I acted on what I believe, I'd have been locked up long ago. Next time you see some some girl with the 'psycho-chick' T-shirt, please bear in mind that might be me. Be nice.

No murderers!?! Why so pessimistic? Bad Serbs probably using her money to cover Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic hiding costs. I'm surprised you did not figured it out by yourself :lol:

No, they spend "his" part too (about $3.9m).

I've read and listened to a lot of propaganda against Serbia but this is the first time I've ever heard someone accusing Serbia of terrorism. Very insulting considering Serbia's sacred Orthodox Christian province of Kosovo & Metohija is about to be formally annexed by the Albanian Islamists and their Vatican/protestant-English sponsors.
