With Iga Swiatek and Anett Kontaveit out, Jabeur is the highest seeded player left in at Wimbledon and will be hoping for a win to tighten her grip on second in the WTA rankings (recently overtaking Kontaveit). Jabeur is yet to win a grand slam and is in fact in the semi-final of a major for the first time in her career, with her previous best being two quarter-final finishes achieved at Wimbledon last year and in the 2020 Australian Open.

The Tunisian entered Wimbledon at the first round and had a pretty smooth route for a while, beating qualifiers Mirjam Bjorklund and Katarzyna Kawa as well as Diane Parry and Elise Mertens in her first four matches, all in straight sets. That put her in the quarter-final against Marie Bouzkova but Jabeur had a slightly different experience, dropping her first set of the tournament and having to come from behind to eventually cruise 4-6, 6-1, 6-1.

Awaiting Jabeur in the semi-final is German Maria, a close friend and “barbecue buddy”. For Maria, this Wimbledon has already been a special tournament, coming just over a year after she gave birth to her second child – achieving her first ever grand slam semi-final. And she’s been made to work for it.

Unseeded, and ranked 103rd in the world, Maria entered the tournament against qualifier Astra Sharma and had to come from a set down to secure her place in the second round. There was another three-set game in the second round against 26th seed Sorana Cirstea before Maria had a relatively straightforward win over fifth-seed Maria Sakkari. Another three-set victory over Jelena Ostapenko followed and Maria once again had to come from behind in the quarter-final to beat compatriot Jule Niemeier 4-6, 6-2, 7-5.

Prediction: Ons Jabeur to win in three sets
