Question Who is Fatma Al-Nabhani from Oman ?

I noticed her last week in Doha qualifying,where she gave a real test to Ayumi Morita in the first set.

And this week in Dubai again she so pushed Anabel and lost the first set by only 4 points!

The only thing I know about her is that she's 16,and currently outside of #900.

Any info on this girl?

Melbourne.

She reached semis in a weak $10K a few weeks ago in Syria...she's still trying it seems

No great results yet, but I doubt she's had a good opportunity to develop her talent.

It cant be hard to pursue tennis in that cultural background. So good luck to her.

The only player from an Arab Muslim background I can think of off the top of my head is that Tunisian girl Salima Sfar.

Good luck to her in her quest. Based on what Sania has gone through it can't be easy for her coming from Oman.

Re: Who is Fatma Al-Nabhani from Oman ?

Is she actually living in Oman, and playing there? Or is that her passport but she lives in, say, the States or Australia, where tennis in general and women playing sports are more common?

Interesting video. We only get to see two forehands and that's it. She dresses in sports clothes, but conservatively.

One question: did you get the impression that her mother is an active player for Oman? I got that impression.
