Description

Meet Jelena Dokic

Unbreakable is the 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, discover 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.

Jelena will be in conversation with co-author Jessica Halloran.

Jessica Halloran is an award-winning senior sports writer with News Corp. She started her journalism career as a cadet at the Sydney Morning Herald and now covers sport for the Sunday Telegraph. Jessica has forged a reputation for in-depth interviews and emotive profile stories. She covered Jelena Dokic’s incredible comeback at the 2009 Australian Open. Her first profile of Jelena saw Jessica win an Australian Sports Commission award for best sports feature writing. Jessica has also been a Walkley Award and a Kennedy Award finalist.

Jelena will be signing books after her talk. Buy a book at the event, or bring your own copy along to be signed.

This event is presented in partnership with Penguin Random House Australia and Dymocks North Lakes
