Ons Jabeur has become the first Arab woman to advance to the final of a Grand Slam. On Thursday, July 7, she defeated Germany’s Tatjana Maria 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 on Court 2 and made her way through to the final of the Wimbledon 2022.

In the first set, Jabeur looked at her very best as she broke her opponent’s serve two times. But in the second set, Maria, who played her maiden Grand Slam semi-final, made a stupendous comeback. She gave Jabeur a run of money and took the match into the third and final set.

However, Jabeur brought forth all her experience and took a 5-0 lead, making it extremely tough for her opponent to stage a comeback. Thereafter, Maria, somehow, managed to hold her serve and keep Jabeur waiting for a little longer.
