Selima Valentine return to professional tennis with surprise exhibition

Selima Valentine return to professional tennis with surprise exhibition in Warsaw

Selima Valentine, 3 times singles Grand Slams winner who has been suffering from long term injury, return to FWTT tour with a surprise appearance in an exhibition against good friend Jane Wong after the singles final. The crowd was in shock but gave Selima a standing ovation.

Ruflina: I was told by Jane that she will be playing an exhibition with someone after the singles final and she did not tell me who she is but she ask me to tell all the girls to come and support. I was in total shock, it bring tears to my eyes to see Selima playing again.

Eva: I am so happy for Selima, no one knew that she will be playing an exhibition, I knew she came and support for the singles final, but I have no idea that she can come on court so quick, she is a strong girl and I am so happy for her.

In the exhibition itself, Selima appear rusty in the first set as Jane Wong win in 6-4. In the second set, trailing 0-3, Selima fights back with many nice winners and volleys which delighted the crowd. But in the end Jane Wong wins in a tiebreak.

Jane, ‘It was a fun match, obviously Selima is a little bit rusty, but she is definitely ready for the tour, I am happy for her.’

After the match Selima says, ‘It has been a long battle, I have started practicing two weeks ago, and I think and hope that I will be ready for Berlin.’

Ask what she missed most about the tour. ‘Definitely seeing my friends and all those girls playing, and I can’t even move hurts me so much, I am glad that I am fortunate enough to play again and I forever thankful for that.’

Asked about her new bulkier body, ‘It is a price I have to paid after taking the medicine, my old sponsors is just irresponsible for dropping me and pressurizing me, and I have no regret in terminating their contract

Selima is looking great, even with her new look

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin
