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 tennis prodigy

A tennis player who came across on tv as a spoilt brat. This statement couldn't be further from the truth. This is the compelling story of a talented tennis player and her struggle as a refugee, emotional and physical abuse, and the tennis world. A great read.

incredible life story

The story of Jelena Dokic rings a deep resounding bell in a reader's mind. Her story is a story of ferociousness, winning, abuse and family. Unbreakable is an open story of what success driven by grit, abuse and passion looks like. I am indebted to Jelena for such an honest, complete and balanced view on her life. What was going on in people's mind when Jelena was abused but winning?

Great Book! Touching and sad

I could relate as a ex professional tennis player and not having a normal childhood . Traveling alone at a young age and the pressure I felt from my Dad. The abuse physical and mentally and the toll on your body training from a young age hour's per day causing injuries. Living out of a suit case and eat drink sleep tennis day after day

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.
