The Diva in Italy

Madonika Diva Jahfson will be the #1 seed on Monday when the ladies tournament in Palermo, Italy kicks off. Jahfson debuted on tour a year ago and in that time she has become one of the tour's most elite players. She's become famous for her sense of style, outrageous behavior, sex-appeal, and level of play.

Recently the Diva got her own exhibition, something that very few players on tour can attain.

"The fact that she isn't a grand slam champion, or a top 10 player and she already has her own event...that just speaks very highly of how valued she is to the tour. This woman is amazing, she attracts absolutely everyone," remarks a critic.

Still known for numerous controversies on and off the court, Jahfson has toned down her behavior.

"She's incredibly intelligent. She knows that sooner or later people will get tired of her antics. So what does she do? She occupies her time with bigger and better things. She's going to be managing her own exhibition, she's been offered to do her own collumn for FWTT magazine, I mean the list is never ending."

"I want to leave a legacy. I want people to remember me...as a trail-blazer, a revolutionary...a strong human being," says Jahfson, as she gently looks up at the camera.

Times have changed for the tour's Diva. Love her or hate her, it's clear she is here to stay.

I played well today but I had a hard time making the transition from grass to clay. I'm happy because I had to fight in both sets because I was down 2-4 in both so thats positive. Against Candela next, it will be difficult because like most Spaniards and South American, she is very good on clay. I'll have to bring my best game.

Debuting African wins first match in Palermo



Talisa TULULPE-RAJE/Daniela TURUNDZHOV 1-6 6-2 6-3

Q: Talisa, congratulations. Seems you enjoyed well your late entry.
A: I'm very happy. It's my first match on FWTT, and I could keep my focus and win. I'm very happy.

Q: How did you entered Palermo on Miele's place?
A: Barbara announced her retirement, and the tournament director accepted, when I asked to enter her place. After a lot of things, I finally could play here. I also had to ask permission for the Juniors tour director for my entrance on tour. Everything's fine now.

Q: So you will have to play Juniors?
A: Yeah, I just enjoyed my opportunity here. I could show everyone what I'm able to. (smiles). Yeah, I'll have to start my career on Juniors.

Q: So this is your debut, tell me things about you Talisa.
A: I'm 16 years old, I'm from Meru, Kenya. And I have been playing tennis since I'm 5 years old. As in Kenya, tennis courts are really rare, I had to go to Zimbabwe to improve my game. My dad and my mom came with me.

Q: So seems tennis in Africa is growing.
A: Yes, I guess so.

Q: It was your choice to play tennis?
A: My dad wanted me to make track and field. I didn't wanted cause I think is not my type, so I started to read some magazine on my city about tennis. I loved and I told my mom, and she said that was pratically impossible to play on Kenya. That's why we traveled to Zimbabwe, cause it's a more developed country.

Q: Talisa, you're playing with Natalya Dhopolcova. Have you met some girls on tour?
A: I didn't had a chance yet. I only met Natalya incidentially before tournament starts, and Daniela, cause I just played her.
They are being really nice with me. I hope we can be good friends.

Q: Ok Talisa, so good luck in Palermo, and we wish to see you more on tour.
A: Thanks guys! I hope too
