thx :)

yes. apparently, this thread is an extention of that ... that thread started out with jelena's interview to the magazine about her father's physical abuse of her ... this thread could be appended to that ... it's about her father's reaction to that interview, for instance ...

... "I've been hunted like a wild beast in Australia for all these years and this has to stop," he said. "They have ruined my family, my life, everything. Let the ambassador halt the witch-hunt against me and I will apologise publicly. If not, I will kill her."

the last paragraph mystified me, namely, "Jelena Dokic, who switched her nationality from Australian to Serbian before splitting from her father and returning to Australia, has won five WTA Tour titles and reached a career-high ranking of No4 in 2002. She has struggled with form and injuries since, but reached the quarter-finals of this year's Australian Open and is currently ranked 74th."

FROM australian TO serbian? I thought she was listed as australian at Indian Wells?

She is back playing for Australia now. That article is referring to when her and her family went back to Serbia in 2001.
