Craziest tennis dad?

Looks like we have a new contender recently with the emergence of Dadday Wozniacki. Dokic and Pierce seemed atright down psychotic, while Yuri and Piotr seem to want success a bit too much. Walter is a bit mad but hes generally harmless.

Re: Craziest tennis dad?

I don't know why everybody say that Piotr is crazy. He looks really composed and not nervous at all.

Re: Craziest tennis dad?

If Wozniacki and Bartoli are in the poll, Radwanski should be.


I voted Damir, but Evgenia Linetskaya's dad was a **** too.

Damir Dokic & Jim Pierce hands down.

The other 3, as crazy as they can be at times, are nowhere near as bad as those 2

Damir Dokic. He is the only one who ruined her daughter career.

you need to read up on jim pierce

from wiki;

During her first few years on the tour, Pierce was known for the behavior of her father, more so than her performances on court. Jim Pierce, who also coached Mary, often shouted abuse at her opponents during matches. On one occasion when he was sitting in the stands, he notoriously screamed, "Mary, kill the --inapropriate word--" He was also reportedly often verbally and physically abusive to Mary during practice sessions and after defeats. Jim was ejected from the French Open in 1993 after he punched a spectator, following which he was banned from all Women's Tennis Association (WTA) Tour events until 1998. The incident also prompted the WTA to pass a new rule (commonly referred to as the "Jim Pierce Rule") which prohibits abusive conduct on the part of players, coaches, and relatives. Mary dropped her father as her coach in 1993 and took out a restraining order against him. A few weeks later, he got into a fight with her bodyguard at a hotel where she was staying. He then sued her claiming that he had been promised 25% of her earnings as a tennis player, and she paid him US$500,000 to drop the suit and to leave her alone. She withdrew from the Wimbledon tournament in 1994 after a British tabloid newspaper threatened to smuggle her father into the grounds.

Re: Craziest tennis dad?

Piotr Wozniacki is making some real inroads into the rankings but nevertheless, Dokic, Lucic, Pierce and Linetskaya's fathers are a class apart from the cases I'm aware of.

Walter Bartoli is just a bit crazy - but in more of a strange and eccentric way.

Yeah, but nobody came close to what Damir did to Jelena's career I think.

There is nothing wrong with Walter Bartoli, Yuri Sharapov, and Piotr Wozniacki. They don't belong in this company.
