Yes there is.

There's the getSelectedExtent method for a Layer
<http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/Layer/00s300000008000000/>
:

   - getExtent ({symbolized_extent}) - Returns a layer's geometric or
   symbolized extent
   - getSelectedExtent ({symbolized_extent}) - Returns a layer's geometric
   or symbolized extent for selected features

A getSelectedExtent method
<http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/DataFrame/00s300000003000000/>
Dataframe
<http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/DataFrame/00s300000003000000/>
:

   - panToExtent (extent) - Pans and centers the data frame extent using a
   new Extent object without changing the data frame's scale
   - zoomToSelectedFeatures () - Changes the data frame extent to match the
   extent of the currently selected features for all layers in a data frame

Plus you can try these:

   - df.zoomToSelectedFeatures() - will zoom to the extents of the data
   frame to all selected features in the map frame
   - lyr.getSelectedExtent() - will zoom to to a selection set for a
   specific layer
