It’s about my mental and physical health and my fitness.
It’s about my well-being and feeling good on the inside and out. Dokic made a serious return to tennis in 2008 and spectacularly reached her third Grand Slam quarterfinal at the 2009 Australian Open, rising from No.187 to No.91 in the WTA rankings, but thereafter again struggled with form and injuries, and stopped playing professionally in 2014.
For me it has already been a comeback, a comeback to my health.
I have enjoyed being able to practice again after years of not being able to, and that’s what it’s all about. I have always loved tennis, but this right now is enjoyment on another level and it makes me so happy.
Earlier this year I talked publicly about my health struggles and having a thyroid problem.
Due to that I have struggled with my health and weight for a while.
But I decided to do it and share my story because if this can help just one person and inspire and motivate someone, then it’s worth it. And to the people that want to judge someone for their weight and appearance, please don’t. You never know what battles they are fighting, whether it’s health related or life related.Mr Dokic said he and his daughter had reconciled their differences and he had been in regular contact with his daughter once a month, adding that he was a changed man.Dokic has not played in Australia since losing in the first round of the Australian Open in January.Although another comeback would be a dream come true for the 34-year-old Dokic, the Serbian-Australian is taking things slowly and her expectations are modest.I love how all of you really want to see me compete again on a professional level and even though I really do believe in the saying “never say never”, let’s not rush to things too quickly.There were a lot of tears, hard moments and tough days, but I got through it. I still have work to do, but I am on the right path. A comeback to professional tennis would be a really big bite, but it’s good to see her smile and interact with her fans.
