‘I feel sick, I threw up and I am heartbroken after watching this,’ admitted the 39-year-old.

‘You think this is brutal? It is but it’s a normal day for a lot of us that have been or are abused especially as children.

‘Hitting, ear pulling, spitting in our faces, throwing us on the ground, punching and kicking us. Just another day for us and that includes this 14 year old girl.

‘Imagine what happens behind closed doors. It’s even worse. This is exactly why I spoke up about this and wrote about it.

‘I always said I am not the first or the last to go through this but my question now is have things changed in the way our sport and society deals with this?

The former world No.4 went on to say that the media needs to focus more upon stories like the sickening attack and less on the romantic lives of athletes. 

The Ministry of Internal Affairs in Belgrade has confirmed overnight that officers from Palilula police station have arrested the man believed to be in the graphic video for alleged domestic violence.

Croatian actor Igor Juric, who posted the video to social media, told Channel Nine that he hopes the disturbing clip can help drive change in the sport.

 ‘It was important to me that institutions and citizens in Serbia understand how much this girl is suffering and that we have to do something serious to stop it,’ he said.

‘I hope this will trigger certain changes in our country and people will understand the scale of this problem.

‘In Serbia I call on everyone to be accountable for this. It’s not right to remain silent.’ 

The wider tennis world has reacted with shock to the abusive video, with players condemning the act.

The video prompted former doubles world No.1 Pam Shriver to ask Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic to intervene.

‘OMG we all need to report, and press charges against this kind of horrible abuse,’ she tweeted.

‘Let’s ask for @DjokerNole to help behind the scenes. We all need to work together to stop abuse. Igor thanks for doing your part,’ she wrote.

Australian player Daria Saville posted: ‘This girl is going to be broken forever. If you think someone is getting physically or mentally abused please support them and encourage them to talk to someone who can help. Offer to help them find a local domestic violence agency or offer to go the police.’ 

Former Aussie star Rennae Stubbs posted: ‘Wow disgusting!!! Sadly this happens ALL THE TIME but we sadly don’t have it on film. Anyone who abuses their kids is just a POS.’
