jelena dokic

Jelena Dokic (Serbian: Jelena Dokić,, pronounced [jɛ̌lɛna dokit͡ɕ]; born 12 April 1983) is a Yugoslavian born -Australian tennis coach, columnist and former player. Her highest ranking was world No. 4 in August 2002. She has won WTA tour events on all surfaces: hard, clay, grass and carpet. In the 1999 Wimbledon Championships the 16-year-old Dokic achieved one of the biggest upsets in tennis history, beating Martina Hingis 6-2, 6-0. This remains the only time the women's world No. 1 has ever lost to a qualifier at Wimbledon. Dokic would go on to reach the quarterfinals of that competition, only her second Grand Slam. Dokic rapidly ascended through the world rankings after her Wimbledon breakthrough, but her time in the world elite was beset by off-court problems. She had a famously turbulent relationship with her father and coach Damir, on whose advice she switched allegiance to the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (later Serbia and Montenegro) in 2000, and back to Australia in 2005. She made a serious return to tennis in 2008 and finished 2009 back in the world top 100, but thereafter struggled badly with form and injuries, and ceased playing professionally in 2014. Wikipedia
