Among other things, the 24-year-old Dokic revealed why she stopped playing tennis, and why she wants to revive her tennis career. Here’s what she said:
“I just haven’t played because I didn’t feel within myself that I was ready to play…You always have ups and downs in a career and, of course, I have had a bit of a down period. I felt like I just wasn’t ready to play, until now. I think if you are not ready it is counterproductive to try and comeback. It is better to leave it and get yourself together. That is what I have done… It has taken some time, but right now I feel like I am in a place mentally and physically that I am ready and able to compete. Now I feel in mind and body I am back and ready to give 100 per cent to train hard and try and play again.”
I hope we’ll see Jelena Dokic in full form again.
