Has there ever been an African player in the top 200 (Caucasian doesn't count)

anybody know??

Sorry to offend you people, but I didn't mean to star a racist thread, its just i already know that Coetzer, Cara Black, Kruger, De Swaardt etc are in the top 200, and they all caucasian. that's why i put caucasian do not count. Sorry about that. Thank you

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

I don't think Sfar is Caucasian, she definately has some kind of Arab blood in her, as she is Tunisian, but she does speak French

Selima Sfar is of Arab origin.
as is Bahia Mouhtassine

Some Arabs are lighter than others but they're still Arabs.

That picture is very deceiving.
I have seen Selima in the flesh. Her hair was died blonde and her skin was not so tanned. She would have passed for a full-blooded european any day.
Obviously she has arab bloody in her.

that topic is so racist, i cant believe that nobody complained!

i am from namibia, i am proud about my country, proud about my continent and i am white!!!!!!!!!!!!!

how can you start a topic about only black players from africa count?

what if i start a topic, who is the best american player - blacks dont count!?!?!?!

that would be exactly the same!!!!!!!!!!
