Ligaosport.com –

Tennis News: One season after becoming the first Arab woman to reach the quarter-finals of Wimbledon, Ons Jabeur made history again by moving one step further in the 2022 season.

The third seed came back from a set down to beat Czech Marie Bouzkova 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 and reach the semifinals of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career at Wimbledon.

In both men’s and women’s events, Arab and North African players have not previously won a Grand Slam in the Open Era, including when Ons Jabeur lost to Sofia Kenin at the 2020 Australian Open and Aryna Sabalenka at Wimbledon 12 months ago. But now, he will face Tatjana Maria, who has made it to the semifinals of a Grand Slam for the first time. They will be playing against each other for the first time in four seasons.

“I hope I can get past this round for a long time. I struggled quite a few times in the quarter-finals,” said Jabeur.

“I spoke a little bit with Hicham Arazi (a former Moroccan tennis player who was ranked 22 in the world and reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam four times) and he said to me, ‘Arabs always lose in the quarter-finals and we are tired of that. Please, break that record!’. I was like, ‘I’ll try, man’. We texted and he was really happy. He was like, ‘Thanks for finally making it to the semifinals. Now you can really step up and win the title’.”

After losing her previous two Grand Slam quarter-finals in straight sets, the Tunisian had a slow start to the Wimbledon quarter-finals against Bouzkova who is trying to beat the seed for a third time this week. After dropping the first set, the Tunisian broke Bouzkova six times in the second and third sets in a match that lasted 1 hour 47 minutes.

“I think I played really well from the start of the second set, especially getting a break early helped me gain confidence,” added Jabeur.

“I know it’s not easy to play against Marie. He got all the balls and didn’t give me easy points. I’m glad I leveled up my game. I played more aggressively in the second set and especially strategically, I played with some angles that he didn’t like.”

Ahead of the Wimbledon semifinals, Jabeur and Maria had previously met three times. The Germans won their meetings at Linz in 2017 and the Tunisians won their meetings in the qualifying rounds for the US Open in 2014 and Beijing in 2018.
