Aryna Sabalenka vs. Ons Jabeur preview
Mair has enjoyed seeing the rise of both players, who have now moved to an elite level and have become mainstays at Grand Slam events. Although Jabeur turned pro in 2010, it wasn't until 2017 she made her top 100 debut. Since that time, she has become a force, winning one WTA title and moving into the top 25 in the rankings. As of June 28, she was at No. 24.
Jabeur, 26, has been nearly unbeatable on grass this season. She is 33-11 overall, but has compiled a 10-1 mark on grass. She posted her first WTA win at Birmingham in June, and reached the finals at Charleston in April. Jabeur defeated five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams 7-5, 6-0 to become the first Tunisian tennis player to reach the third round at Wimbledon.
Sabalenka has also had a solid season, compiling a 33-10 record, including a 6-2 mark on grass. In the warm-up tournament to Wimbledon at Eastbourne last month, she reached the quarterfinals where she lost a hard-fought 7-6, 0-6, 6-4 decision to Camila Giorgi of Italy. Sabalenka has had a lot of success this year with wins at Abu Dhabi and Madrid and a runner-up finish at Stuttgart.
The 23-year-old has played exclusively in the WTA Tour since 2018, when she was named Newcomer of the Year. By 2019, she debuted in the top 10 in rankings, but finished the season ranked No. 11. Last year, she earned three WTA titles and entered 2021 on a nine-match winning streak.
