Damir Dokic says he is seeking to kidnap his estranged daughter Jelena,
and has threatened to kill an Australian as revenge for her returning to
In a sensational rant to a Serbian newspaper, Damir Dokic has vowed
revenge against Australia for conspiring to return the 2000 Wimbledon
semi-finallist to the country.
Damir, renowned for his erratic behaviour, says he wants to drop a nuclear
bomb on Australia and accuses Croatia and the Vatican of influencing her
decision to quit Serbia and return to Australia.
Under her father's guidance, Jelena Dokic quit Australia for Serbia in
2001, and has only just returned to the Australian fold after becoming
estranged from Damir.
"Australia with the help of Croatia and the Vatican have brainwashed my
daughter," Damir told Serbian daily Kurir.
"I have thought about dropping a nuclear bomb on Sydney since Jelena lost
in the first round this week, for which Australia is to blame.
"I have even thought about killing an Australian in revenge, but I
wouldn't gain anything from it."
Damir has sought help from Serbian politicians, including an accused war
criminal, in kidnapping Jelena.
"Only two were ready to help," Damir said.
"One of them however, Vojislav Seselj, is waiting to be tried at the
International War Crimes Tribunal in the Hague."
Damir said it was Australia, rather than him, that was mentally suspect.
"Australia is a spoiled nation," Damir said.
"They can expect my revenge.
"I'm not crazy when I say this, they are the crazy ones who give you hot
sausages before the match when it's 40 degrees celsius outside."
How time flies.
And poor Jelena.
Take a deep breath, take a walk, cool off, plot a bit, and serve again.
