Ons Jabeur, the Tunisian tennis sensation, continues her impressive run at Wimbledon as she secures a spot in the quarter-finals with a commanding victory over two-time champion Petra Kvitova. Jabeur’s 6-0, 6-3 triumph on Centre Court sets up a highly-anticipated rematch against defending champion Elena Rybakina, with Jabeur seeking revenge for her loss in last year’s final.
The sixth-seeded Jabeur displayed her exceptional skills during the match, thrilling fans with her drop shots, passing winners on the run, and powerful shots from the baseline. Kvitova, a former Wimbledon champion in 2011 and 2014, struggled to cope with Jabeur’s variety of shots and committed 22 unforced errors.
Reflecting on her victory, Jabeur expressed her admiration for Kvitova and acknowledged the significance of defeating such an accomplished player. She stated, “I respect what she has done for women’s tennis, for me to be able to win against her is huge.”
