Croatian-Australian tennis player who won the junior US Open in 1998, age 16. A year later, still virtually unknown, she beat Martina Hingis at Wimbledon and created quite a sensation on the tennis circuit. She played in the 2000 Olympics but failed to win a medal.
The oldest of two children, she was coached by her dad at an early age and by age 7 was receiving help from professional coaches at the local tennis club. The family moved to Australia in 1994.
Her driving and somewhat controlling dad has caused some problems for her in her profession as he angered Australian tennis officials, claiming bias against her. He reportedly solicited sex from a female reporter in exchange for an interview and then caused his daughter some pain by trying to interfere in her romantic relationships. She has banned her parents from the players' section at tournaments.
