Publisher's Summary

This is a story of Jelena Dokic's survival. How she survived as a refugee twice. How she survived on the tennis court to become world number four. But, most importantly, how she survived her father, Damir Dokic, the tennis dad from hell.

From war-torn Yugoslavia to Sydney to Wimbledon, she narrates her hellish ascent to becoming one of the best tennis players in the women’s game, the abuse she endured at the hands of her father and her heartbreaking fall from the top. Jelena never told anyone the full truth of what she went through until now, and her unbreakable spirit will inspire you.

A tale of true grit

Loved her story and how she is strong after an upbringing like that. In a better environment she would have become a number 1, multi-slam winner. But even more admirable is how she handled herself and truly become bigger than many winners in the traditional sense. Real bravery.

A sad yet compelling story

This was genuinely heart breaking hearing about the abuse of such a talented player. However, as a book, it does meander along and is at times repetitive and frustrating.

An Amazing Woman

This is an emotional & riveting story of an incredibly strong, mentally tough woman. I have always been fascinated with Jelena. Not the controversy but the athlete & person. I am so glad that she had the strength to write this book. She asks not for sympathy but for understanding. My emotion was admiration & inspiration. If I was ever to be able to meet Jelena Dokic in person ... it would truly be one of the great moments in life.

unbreakable is unbelievable

the inside story needs to be heard before you hold any begrudging judgements against Jelena during her ordeal as her father's puppet
