Interview with Zarah: http://www.lexpressmada.com/zarah-ra...c-l-etat-.html

Money still a problem. Playing RG and USO, would like to play Wimbledon and AO but that's not certain.

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

two more articles about zarah:

http://www.lexpressmada.com/4891/ten...oye-zarah.html

says that she received money from a minister because she won the african junior champoinships again...and that her parents can't support her because they have no money and poor living conditions....

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Zarah's story: http://www.lexpressmada.com/portrait...hampionne.html

Hopefully between my rather limited French and Google's sometimes eccentric translations, I got the gist.

She's the eldest of six siblings. Dad Julien used to play but misfortune prevented him from progressing far, so he promised himself that at least one of his children would become a great champion.

...

Quote:
Karl Davies, l'expert de la Fédération internationale de tennis qui l'a repérée par un bel après-midi de 2007, a confié à L'Hebdo de Madagascar (numéro du vendredi 15 au jeudi 251 avril) que c'était sa
« volonté plutôt que sa technique de frappe ou son jeu de jambe » qui l'a fasciné.
« Quand j'ai vu Zarah sur le terrain se dépenser à 200%, je me suis dit, cette joueuse-là, elle a de l'avenir », raconte-t-il encore à L'Hebdo de Madagascar.

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Bad day at the office, it seems: onto Belgium.
http://www.courrierdemada.com/mg/ind...port&Itemid=64
Quote:
Zarah Razafimahatratra n'a pas cherché d'excuse pour expliquer son élimination hier au second tour du 52e trophée Bonfiglio. D'autant plus que son vis-à-vis à ce stade de compétition, la Brésilienne Beatriz Haddad Maia, est loin d'être une foudre de guerre. "Je ne sais pas ce qui m'est arrivé aujourd'hui (ndlr : hier) mais j'ai vraiment mal joué", avoue la championne d'Afrique junior en titre, jointe au téléphone. Sa narration sur le déroulement de ce match qu' elle a perdu en deux sets à un, 7-5, 4-6, 6-1, confirme ses dires. "J'ai déjà mené 4 à 1 à la première manche mais comme j'ai commis beaucoup de fautes directes, mon adversaire a fini par la remporter". Même physionomie au second set où Zarah a eu du mal pour conclure malgré une avance de quatre jeux, 5-1.

"Je pense avoir déjà retourné la page de ce circuit italien. Je vais me concentrer sur les deux prochains tournois, celui de Belgique et de Roland Garros", relativise Zarah Razafimahatratra. Bien que battue au premier tour à l'édition 2010 de Roland Garros, la Malgache se dit aguerrie pour mieux l'affronter cette année. Croisons les doigts.
