Episode #292: Jelena Dokic is fighting to become the best version of herself

Jelena Dokic is an Australian tennis legend. She reached world number 4  and won 6 singles titles before retiring in 2014 and transitioning to a career in media. Alongside her commentating career, Jelena has written two books ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Fearless,’ in which she opens up about her story of survival.

In this long awaited conversation, Jelena shares with Steph and Laura about learning she had an eating disorder, having her life and diet controlled by coaches and her father, dealing with body shaming comments online, how she built herself up from rock bottom and is now striving to become the best version of herself.
