“The most common comment being ‘what happened to her, she is so big’?” she composed.
“I will tell you what happened, I am finding a way and surviving and fighting. And it really doesn’t matter what I am doing and what happened because size shouldn’t matter.

Dokic sprang to prominence at Wimbledon in 1999 when she stunned world number one Martina Hingis in the first round.
She won six WTA singles titles during her career and reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon in 2000, but struggled for years to escape the influence of her volatile father Damir.
