Amanda Coetzer from S.Africa

Amanda Coetzer from S.Africa

Also Dally Radriantefy from Madagascar (top 100)
Selima Sfar from Tunisia (top 200)
South Africa has several other players too, but not indigenous players as far as I'm aware. Tennis will most likely remain a sport for whites only for a long time yet unfortuantly in S. Africa.

Aug 23rd, 2003, 01:39 PM
You're right Johno, I think all the current South African world ranked players are white. The divide still runs across other sports too. Rugby & cricket are almost all white players (to a lesser extent in rugby) and supporters, whilst in contrast the football team is dominated by black players.

The other African world ranked players

- Algeria:

Feriel Esseghir & Sana Ben Salah

- Egypt
Yomna Farid, Amani Khalifa, Heidi El Tabakh, Noha Mohsen and Magy Aziz

- Madagascar

Dally Randriantefy has also got a world-ranked sister Natacha

- Morocco

Bahia Mouhtassine (top 200), Meryem Haddad, Habiba Ifrakh, Zineb El Ouazzani and Hanane Toumi. Also several top mens players like El Aynaoui

- Nigeria

Femi Odeyemi Musa & Fatima Abinu

- South Africa
As well as Coetzer, Natalie Grandin & Chanelle Scheepers are both top 200. Also, Nicole Rencken, Liezel Huber (formerly top 100, now outside the top 500), Jessica Steck, Kim Grant, Michelle Snyman, Surina De Beer, Joanette Kruger and Anca Anastasiu

I think part of the problem is that there's so few world ranking tournaments (adult or junior) in Africa, and potential players from the poorer parts of Africa will not be able to afford to travel to Europe or the USA.

wasnt there a girl who walked from challengers
to challengers awhile back then,
anyone remembers who that is?

Nov 16th, 2003, 08:22 PM
Kim Grant (S.Africa) has done quite well in doubles over the past couple of years.

Surina De Beer has had injury problems but has been on form of late. She has won two British LTA tournaments within the past month, and seems to enjoy it.

What's happened to Zimbabwe in the Fed Cup? I have a bit of a soft spot for them (because I've got relatives there) and I couldn't see Zimbabwe in any draws for the Fed Cup.

Mar 29th, 2004, 05:50 PM
What happened with two other African players? I know that Feriel Esseghir of Algeria was a top 200 potential, but suddenly she dropped out. Besides that...wat happened to Egyptian player Amani Khalifa? She wasn´t a big potential, but sure a strong Egyptian Fed Cup player.

Apr 11th, 2004, 01:30 PM
Does anyone else think that what's happened with the Zimbabwe cricket team (for those who don't know, cricket is a sport played by countries part of the British Commonwealth, and is kind of like baseball) will happen to tennis. For those who don't know, President Mugabe is tied up with the Zimbabwe Cricket Union, and players have had to retire because of their colour, or standing up to the ZCU over selection process, because coloured players are being picked because of their colour. Also just yesterday, 12 white cricket players were axed from the team, meaning Zimbabwe will field a side with no whites in it. Go to www.cricinfo.com (http://www.cricinfo.com) for more details on that if you're interested. I know the Davis Cup squad has two white players and two coloured. Is there a policy there? If not, do you think that what's happened with the cricket team, will spread to both Davis Cup and Fed Cup teams?

Apr 11th, 2004, 08:09 PM
Liezel Huber (formerly top 100, now outside the top 500)

But she focuses on doubles and does very well doing so ;)

Apr 11th, 2004, 08:11 PM
She wasn´t a big potential, but sure a strong Egyptian Fed Cup player.

I personally expect a lot from Heidi El Tabakh in the future.. She's now ranked #750 or something, but she's got the potential to make it.

Apr 15th, 2004, 03:51 AM
has anyone heard anything about amanda coetzer - she has only played two matches this year and is not in the fed cup team. Her rank is sliding. Is this the end. I dont think she would play if she has to play qualifying?????????

Apr 15th, 2004, 08:34 AM
Hi, 'tennis2003',
my answer in http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=106271 is still up-to-date, no news till today ...
... with greetings to You,

Apr 19th, 2004, 11:09 PM
Anyone knows if Jo Kruger retired ? I know she's been injured and came back in some events in 2003 included RG but since I never heard of her . Please tell me if so knows!!!

Jul 19th, 2004, 10:44 PM
Where is Khady Berthe :sad:

Jul 29th, 2004, 02:39 AM
There are some players from Ghana who always commit to british 10ks or 25ks and then withdraw at the last minute even though they are accepted....

and there is Samia Mehjaadi of Algeria :D
There are also many Nigerians who play in Nigerian 10ks .

In terms of an indigenous player from South Africa, sure the sport is white dominated, but I do recall a player named Tsitsi, but I can't remember if she is from Zimbabwe or South Africa. I think Zimbabwe.

Sep 8th, 2004, 10:25 PM
Heidi El tabakh is one of the players im seing a good futur!! for shure top 100th but she will need some help to go there!!

that was Tsitsi Masviba from Zimbabe was a top 100 junior player, played some Challengers in the States but retired soon

now there are two players Fadzai Masiyazi and Fadzai Mawisire from Zimbabe who do have potential

From Madagascar Seheno Razafindramaso who played some Challengers this year and Aina Rafalomanantsiatosika but had a ranking two years ago and is now on several acceptance lists

from Nigeria Femi Odeyem-Musa has disappeared

maybe Hannah Eke, Fatima Abinu and Osaro Amadin do have a chance to get a ranking
and of course Clara Udofa but she hasnt played in a year but already had a career high of 550 6 years ago

a read a report about two 14 year old girls from Kenia who are very ambitious getting pros

Nov 6th, 2004, 07:59 AM
I have high hopes for Tapiwa Marobela of Botswana. She is in the top 100 in juniors and is the only Fed Cup player to beat other people in singles.

I think she can do quite well on senior tour if she gets a chance, and she is 'indigenous' too.

Nov 6th, 2004, 10:00 AM
would be great to see Marobela in singles once but compared to Masviba for instance she isnt that talented and Masviba couldnt hardly win matches on po tour.

Marobela, Masiyazi, Mawisire and Razafindramaso are at the moment at the same level, but Razafindramaso seems to be the best so far

Dec 12th, 2004, 02:39 AM
Someone know if Heidi El-Tabakh is living in Canada or something like that. I don't know if I'm crazy but she played the Junior Canadian Championshiph under 18 normally reserved to canadian players... that's weird

Jan 20th, 2005, 07:40 AM
Amanda- jy is n' lekker player en die mooist meissie!! Gaan Amanda, gewoonlik jy is die bes Suid Afrikaanse player en speel n'goed round. :kiss:
Chanelle Scheepers- jy sien daar goed uit!
Cara-Gesondheid vir die AO!!

Its a shame African tennis is so under rated and there arnt many if any (Exept Madagaskar) in the t100. South Africa should have many more up there as it has the talent and the facilities, its just tennis there is viewed to much as a social game and not taken seriously enough!

ae wowww
Jan 22nd, 2005, 06:32 AM

Jan 28th, 2005, 06:36 AM
Liezel huber also deserves a good play mention with her recent doubles with Cara. Not as good as last year for Liezel but nonetheless a brilliant close game.

Aanstaande jaar Liezel en jy sal in jy plek hooplik met Cara :D :kiss: :yeah:

May 10th, 2005, 06:34 PM
Has Heidi El Tabakh changed from Egypt to Canada? The ITF Tournements she has entered for May 30/2005 are under Canada? Let's hope so, she would be a great addition to canadian tennis!!

Dec 21st, 2005, 07:17 PM
Did Dally retire? :confused:

Dec 23rd, 2005, 02:09 PM
Samia Medjahdi seems to be the future for African tennis, as is Marinne Giraud who has switched nationalities from French to Mauritius :)

Jan 9th, 2006, 05:52 PM
Did Dally retire? :confused:

Dally will still play some tournaments in 2006 :)
