Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Already one of the biggest names in women's tennis, this fifteen year old from Madagascar is the African junior champion in singles and doubles. Can she now step up to the next level?

Good start to the European adventure, though this may be Zarah's last win for a while...

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Hope she can step up to the big time. Her name will cause umpires and commentators so many problems.

I imagine commentators will just call her Zarah

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Article about the "ITF Team" of which Zarah has been a part: http://www.itftennis.com/development...rticleid=21745

It's been tough going for Zarah in the slams so far. She's safe for AO girls' entry, but if she doesn't get some points on the board there, she'll have to go back to winning weak African G2s if she wants to play RG.

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Zarah has easily defended her AJC warm-up finalist's points, beating old rival Fourouclas in the SF. She faces another old rival, Abbes, in the final.

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

WTA an ITF should do something to support tennis players that don´t have the finnacial support that other countries take for granted. It would help to make tennis more international.

Re: Malagasy Magic: Zarah Razafimahatratra

Zarah impériale face à Nour Abbes

« C’était un bon tournoi dans la mesure où je l’ai gagné bien sûr, mais mon objectif sera de défendre mon titre de championne d’Afrique cette semaine. La Tunisienne Ons Jabeur, numéro 10 mondiale, n’est pas en lice dans les championnats d’Afrique et c’est un peu dommage. J’aurai, bien aimé jouer une finale contre elle, mais j’espère avoir d’autres occasions de jouer contre elle », explique Zarah, jointe par messagerie électronique.
