Talking Selima Sfar = Nathalie Tauziat

I'm boring at the moment so, I was looking up in archive articles in Internet and I though you like read this one. This is from February in Dubai after won over No. 22, Barbara Schett <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

--------------------

Selima Sfar, 23, has trained at Tauziat's academy in Biarritz since she was 13 and claims her as a best friend and mentor.

"I've got a lot of respect for her tennis," said Selima Sfar.

"She's my favourite player and I learned a lot from her. On tour she's my best friend, and she's my example and I try to play like her.

"But it's a tennis match and I'll go on court and play the match like I don't know her. I'll try anyway."

--------------------

Anyone seen her in person or on TV? Is she good play? I know her best match is won over Barbara Schett in Dubai <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> The score was 7-6 (7-5) 2-6 7-5 <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

Oh yeah, I'll add her name on my signature soon <img src="wink.gif" border="0">


Inspiration is for amateurs

She's good, warm and a friendly girl.

she's got alot of friends with the GB girls as she used to play alot of challengers here and still does.

She does play like Nathalie , strokes are almost identical, hopefully she can make the same impact.<br /> it took Nathalie some time to become a force.

Good luck in 2016 to my favs*Kuznetsova*Sharapova*Kleybanova*Vesnina*Shvedova*Kulichkova*Kasatkina*

From a few match reports I've read, Sfar plays like Tauziat, but perhaps even more aggressive. It would be great if she could become a top 30 player. A real boost for tennis in her home region.

her game isn't as solid as Nathalie yet , it took her until she was around 29 to make it good.
