Writers Live - Jelena Dokic discusses Unbreakable with Jessica Halloran
14th Nov @ Berkelouw Mona Vale
You are invited to meet Jelena Dokic when she discusses her memoir Unbreakable with Jessica Halloran.
Jelena Dokic's story is one of survival. She survived as a refugee twice. She survived on the tennis court to become world number 4. Most importantly she survived her father, Damir Dokic, the tennis dad from hell.
Jelena was a prodigious talent, heralded as Australia's greatest tennis hope since Evonne Goolagong. She had exceptional skills, a steely nerve and an extraordinary ability to fight on the court. Off it she endured huge challenges - being an 'outsider' in her new country, as well as poverty and racism.
She still starred on the tennis court. By 18, she was in the world's top 10. By 19 she was number 4. The world was charmed by her and her story - a refugee whose family had made Australia home when she was eleven years old.
Jelena has not told a soul her incredible, explosive story in full - until now.'
