Join Australian tennis great Jelena Dokic as she talks about her new book, Unbreakable, with co-author and award-winning journalist, Jessica Halloran.

From war-torn Yugoslavia to Sydney to Wimbledon, she narrates her hellish ascent to becoming one of the best tennis players in the women’s game, and her heart-breaking fall from the top. Unbreakable is the story of Jelena Dokic's survival.

Not only how she survived on court, but also off court. A refugee to Australia at the age of 11, Dokic overcame the challenges of being an 'outsider' in her new country, poverty and racism, and the tennis dad from hell, Damir Dokic.

Copies of Unbreakable will be available to buy for signing at the event from 'Love That Book'.
