Selima Sfar is brilliant!!

What a player - if only she was really consistant! I love her. Her play reminds me a bit of Momo and her personality reminds me of Marcos Bhagdatis!

Oh she's just beat Vera! Great!

Haven't really seen her play much!

What's her ranking and has she won any tournaments? I do like watching her.

What does everyone else think or am I the only one?

I think Selima's great has well. She's not powerful, but her game is so nice to watch because it's a totally different style of attacking nowadays.

I seen her play against Justine in Dubai 2 years ago and her personality was the same, except she knew she wouldn't beat Justine. It was great watching her celebrate at shots she probably hasn't been hitting for a long time in.

I think she's a big match player since she's always played well at Dubai. In 2001 she reached the quarters beating Talaja and Schett and took Tauziat to 3 sets. She took Kournikova to 3 sets in 2002. In 2004 she beat Tanasugarn and gave Henin a nice battle in the second and last year took Likhovtseva to a 3rd set tiebreak. And last year she came form 5-0 down to beat Loit 9-7 at Wimbledon.

Hopefully she'll reach at least the Top 150 again. She definetly shouldn't be #254 at the moment
