About the book

Book cover - Unbreakable by Jelena Dokic and Jessica Halloran.

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 No. 4. 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, and her heart-breaking fall from the top. Her gutsy honesty will leave you in awe. Her fight back from darkness will uplift you. Most of all, Jelena's will to survive will inspire you.
