Crazy Damir Dokic is at it again. The father of tennis star Jelena Dokic has managed to lower the bar for tennis parents with embarrassing displays that would make Mary Pierce’s dad cringe. His past antics have included getting ejected from a tournament for calling an official a “Nazi”, and getting kicked out of the U.S. Open after pitching a fit about the price of a meal at the players’ cafe. Which makes is pretty clear why his daughter ditched him in 2002 and has rarely talked to him since.
As you can imagine, Damir has not taken this with grace and class, and he’s made Jelena’s new home of Australia a target. A few years ago, he threatened to kidnap his daughter and nuke Sydney, which is entertaining but kind of vague. Now the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD says he’s gotten more specific, threatening to launch a rocket attack on the Australian ambassador to Serbia, which has been taken seriously enough that he’s been arrested by Serbian police.
