Dokić's career highpoints include beating #1 ranked Kim Clijsters at the 2003 Zurich Open (October) as well as Serena Williams in 1999. She was ranked #4 in 2002 (a career high), #14 in 2003, and #25 in 2004.
Dokić was born in Osijek (former Yugoslavia, now Croatia) but her family emigrated to Sombor, Serbia in 1991 due to the Yugoslav wars. They moved to Australia in 1994, and Jelena played for Australia from 1999 to 2002, when she began playing for her native Serbia and Montenegro.
In 2003, she was trained by one Borna Bikić from Croatia (also dating his brother Tino), contrary to the wishes of her father Damir Dokić. In mid-2004, Jelena returned to Serbia to her family. She is going to start training again soon.
Up to date, Jelena has amassed over $3,6M in prize money.
