Dokic has been pretty outspoken about all the problems she had in her life, particularly the abusive relationship with her father that she detailed in her book. She also spoke about her suicidal ideas while also discussing the abuse online she got after gaining weight. Judy Murray took the social media to defend Dokic after learning some of the things that have been said about her:
"Jelena Dokic was one of the world’s best tennis players and is an outstanding and entertaining pundit/presenter. Why are women judged so much on how they look instead of how good they are at their jobs? U don’t see this type of criticism aimed at male presenters."
