Former world number four Jelena Dokic wants to play for Australia again after a four-year self-imposed exile.
Dokic has had a major fall from grace over the last four years
Belgrade-born Dokic has represented Serbia and Montenegro since 2001, in which time her world ranking has slipped to 349.
"I am Australian, I feel like one and I want to play for Australia again," she told the Sydney Daily Telegraph.
Dokic has been given a wild card for next week's Canberra Classic and is no longer coached by her father Damir.
Dokic represented Australia until 2001 when she stormed out of the country, claiming the Australian Open draw had been rigged against her and vowing never to play in the country again.
She said her father's disruptive behaviour had affected her earlier career and she felt it was time to put things right.
"My father and I have completely different ideas, we aren't on the same wavelength. I am not able to live with him or to work with him," she said.
"Whatever happened before I had no control over, the decisions weren't made by me.
"I wanted to go back before but I was a little afraid of what reception I'd receive.
"Everyone will have their opinion and I cannot know how much will be positive or negative, but I owe a lot to so many people in Australia. It is where I belong."
