This year’s Wimbledon has seen Jabeur reach the semi-final of a grand slam for the first time, with her previous best being two quarter-final finishes achieved at Wimbledon in 2021 and the 2020 Australian Open. But she won’t be happy to settle for that, especially as she is now so close to her first ever major – and the first for an African and Arab player.
The Tunisian entered Wimbledon at the first round and has had a pretty smooth route, dropping just two sets. Her first four wins all came through straight-set victories, beating qualifiers Mirjam Bjorklund and Katarzyna Kawa as well as Diane Parry and Elise Mertens to reach the quarter-finals. Jabeur had her first real test against Marie Bouzkova in the quarter-final, having to come from a set down, and then she dropped another in the semi-final against close friend Tatjana Maria – though her two set wins were comfortable, coming through 6-2, 3-6, 6-1.
But 17th-seed Rybakina will want a different end to Jabeur’s story, one that sees the 23-year-old become the first Kazakh player to win a grand slam having smashed her previous best finish of the fourth round at Wimbledon achieved last year. Like Jabeur, Rybakina’s road to the final was a smooth one, but that should take away from her achievement.
Rybakina started Wimbledon against lucky loser CoCo Vandeweghe and also beat Bianca Andreescu, Qinwen Zhang, Petra Martic and Ajla Tomljanovic (all unseeded) to set up a semi-final against favourite Simona Halep. No one expected Rybakina to get past that test, but in the end it was a straightforward victory, with the Kazakh star winning 6-3, 6-3. As she prepares for the final, only Tomljanovic has taken a set off of Rybakina, so Jabeur will have to work hard for her victory.
