Why is Haidy El Tabakh no longer Egyptian but Canadian?

I was surprised by looking at Haidy El Tabakh's results that she has a CAN behind her name and no longer an EGY!

Why did she change her nationality from Egyptian to Canadian?









Well she looks Egyptian to me.

It's sad to see her changing her nationality because Africa has only a few good players; Dally Randriantefy, Selima Sfar or Nathalie Grandin.

Well Do Canadians have good players....maybe Haidy moved to Canada and relocated alot of people do that....especially when they want to pursue a career that is not very popular in their country....Why do all the russians train in Spain and Florida.....why is almost every good player lives or has a house in Florida, because tennis is popular, good trainers, good weather to practise...etc etc etc....

However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I've never seen her play Lets see if being a canadian can help her a little....or maybe she should train in the states if she can afford it.....or france or spain....one of the countries that are able to produce tennis stars....

Heydi is nowhere close to Mirza. She has a pretty solid game, but don't expect a lot from her in the future. She is a former top 20 juinior player though. Recently, she had few injuuries, especially a tough back one, that prevented her from playing a lot of tourneys.

She moved to Toronto recently to study, and that was the basis of her change of nationality. When she came here she realised that it was easier for her to represent Canada and that it would help her career, though recently it didn't lead to much. She did get a qualy WC in Toronto, where she was leading 6-4 4-0 against Cohen-Aloro, before losing 4-6 6-4 6-0. She became canadian really fast didn't she?
