Madagascar Tennis
These women from madagascar deserve their own thread. they're just starting to play a little more on the itf tour, but their results show that they seem to be promising talents. madagascar is not known for having many tennis players, except dally randriantefy (former top 50 player) who retired a few years ago, and so i thought it would be nice to start a platform to discuss their progress and their results and to draw a bit more attention onto them.

First, we have Zarah Razafimahatratra, here's another thread with some information about her:

And second, we have Nantenaina Ramalalaharivololona, here's a thread with information about her:

so, everybody who's interested, feel free to post your thoughts and news about these two lovely ladies, follow their results and of course cheer for them!

so here we go......

Ramalalaharivololona plays the 10k in Le Havre this week. she won her two qualifying matches 60 62 and 61 60. gl to her in her first round match!
