Star African tennis player to watch: Ons Jabeur

LONDON, UK, January 15 – DStv viewers can expect to see African tennis star Ons Jabeur in Grand Slam action when the Australian Open kicks off from Monday January 17, 2022

SuperSport is the ultimate destination for tennis fans, with an unrivaled selection of action from around the world.

Tunisian Ons Jabeur has had a stellar 2021, reaching the peak of his career as world No. 7 – a record for the highest-ranked Arab tennis player in the history of the ATP or WTA rankings.

It was at the 2020 Australian Open that she became the first Arab woman to reach the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam tournament, which she reached again at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.

Jabeur then won her first WTA title at the 2021 Birmingham Classic by defeating Daria Kasatkina, becoming the first-ever Amazigh/Arab and Tunisian tennis player to win a WTA title.

The 27-year-old, from Monastir in Tunisia, will look to continue her success in 2022 and come to the Australian Open in good standing, having shrugged off injury issues that plagued her at the end from last year. She also won the Mubadala World Tennis Championship last month, beating Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic.

“It was a crazy trip to come here, but as I said before, it has always been a dream for me to come and play here at Mubadala,” Jabeur said. “It’s amazing to be here in Abu Dhabi; to be here in an Arab country, to represent Tunisia, to represent the Arab world. I’m so glad I got this opportunity, so I’m really grateful for it.

“I hadn’t played since Moscow and it’s been forever, so it was good to play some points and it felt like a real game. Belinda plays very well, so it was difficult at times.

Regarding his ambitions for the new year, Jabeur explained: “I like challenges and saying goals out loud. I want to keep breaking records and keep making history; give more than one example for the athletes out there. I want to continue my path and win more titles, prove to myself that I deserve a place in the top 10. I am very ambitious to [2022].”
