A great first for Ons Jabeur. This Thursday, the Tunisian, 2nd player in the world and seeded n°3, qualified for the final of the 2022 edition of Wimbledon in Great Britain, on grass, her first Grand Slam final, after her victory, in the semi-finals, against the German Tatjana Maria, 103rd player in the world, in three sets (6-2, 3-6, 6-1) and 1h45 of play. In the first round, the Tunisian got two entry break points, before arriving, in stride, at a break, after a total of four balls. At the best of times, at 4-2, Ons Jabeur again took the service of his opponent, before pocketing this first set, on a final shutout, in stride (6-2).
A final one-sided set
In the second set, this time at 1-1, the better ranked of the two again had two break points. But this time, in the process, it was she who then lost her service. At 5-2, the German thought she took a new serve, which would then have allowed her to conclude this second set. But it was only a postponement, because it was on her own service that Tatjana Maria managed to equalize at one set everywhere, after a total of three set points (6-3). Finally, in the third and last set, the 2nd player in the world broke from the start before trying twice, in stride, to achieve a double-break and then lead fairly quickly 5-0. With this double advantage in hand, the seeded No. 3 put an end to this meeting, on his second match point (6-1).
