Father of the year voting has opened, and already there is a front-runner. I think I may start paying more attention to the tennis scene. The more I read, the more I like it. There is a lot going on. “Like what?” you might be asking? Like Jelena Dokic’s father threatening the Australian Ambassador of course. Jelena is the Aussie of Serb descent that made more of a splash on the internet than the court, yet still manages to make her way into the news. Hmmmmm….
Her dad is so unhinged that he thought the best way to refute allegations he beat his daughter was to threaten to blow up the ambassador’s car!! Genius! Add “tennis dad” to the list of sports crazies like “hockey dad” and “soccer mom”.
