CONFIRMED: Dado Majoli coaches Jelena Dokic!
21.05.2006. (Jelena Dokic LiVE, Jutarnji list)

Serbian tennis player Jelena Dokic, after an ineffectual professional cooperation with Borna Bikic from Zagreb, will try to return on WTA list by Dado Majoli, brother of former world number 4, Iva Majoli. It's good news for young Jelena, who had serious private problems after starting successes in her professional tennis career.

Dado Majoli coaches Jelena two months already, and results of its cooperation we will see at the beginning of June, when she starts with new tennis' battles again.

"Jelena has trained at Iva Majoli's tennis centre, our meeting was suddenly. We was scheduled a probationary cooperation that last two months already. When we be sure that it will be productive we'll conclude an agreement," told Dado Majoli for Croatian Jutarnji list and added that next for Jelena is a small tournament, most likely on clay.

We find that organizers of Croatian Ladies Open plans to give Jelena a wild card. This tournament starts on 12th June 2006. There is chance if she begins with wins again to get a wild card for Wimbledon, too.

We observed how Jelena is "dangerously" near by form of her best career days, she follows advices of Dado 100% and uses last atoms of herself to hit fantastic strokes after few hours of strenuous training.

Andrew's reaction: This is exciting news for me as a fan of both Iva and Jelena! Dado was one of Iva's main coaches when she was playing (1990-2004).

BTW, the "Croatian Ladies Open" of 12th June 2006 is ITF Zagreb. The tournament-director is none other than Iva herself! :hearts:
