Ons Jabeur v Tatjana Maria Head-to-head
Jabeur leads 2-1; they last met in WTA Beijing 2018 where the Tunisian won 6-4, 6-1.
Maria in her Maiden Grand Slam semifinal
Tatjana Maria has proven over the last two weeks that if you decide on something, it is more than possible to achieve your dreams.
At the age of 34, the German will now compete in the first Grand Slam semi-final of his career. Until now, she had never gotten past round three in majors – which she has competed in since 2007.
Not only that, but she has achieved this feat after giving birth to her second daughter in April last year. Tatjana returned to the tour after maternity leave in July 2021 and has spent time building her form – alternating between ITF and WTA tours.
As of Wednesday, Maria is 36-16 so far this season – ranked as No. 103 in the world. Her highlights include a challenger title in the ITF Rome, USA, and her second WTA title which she won in the Copa Colsanitas.
At SW19, she has taken this enormous experience and speed and used it well.
In the opening, she survived the Astra Sharma in three sets and followed it with a similar victory over the 25th seed Sorana Cirstea. It is worth noting that Tatjana made a comeback in the last set after going under 0-3. She took the match 6-3, 1-6, 7-5.
It was followed by a victory in straight-set over seed number five Maria Sakkari.
Then Maria received Jelena Ostapenko – the shapely Latvian who enjoyed a sensational turn of the grass. The German saved two match points and cut the rebellion 5-7, 7-5, 7-5.
Her last opponent was Jule Niemeier who she again beat in three sets (4-6, 6-2, 7-5).
Jabeur, all ready for the final
A moment like this has been a long time coming for world No. 2 Ons Jabeur.
The 27-year-old, now 35-9 this year with a career as the best ranking, has been given a chance to add a Grand Slam to her CV. By reaching the semi-finals this week at Wimbledon, she has also become the first North African or Arab woman to have come this far in a major.
A race like this is not entirely surprising – Jabeur has four singles finals behind him in 2022. All are WTA 500 level or higher; she won the title in Madrid and Berlin and came second in Charleston and Rome.
Wed has played with exceptional consistency on all grass pitches and has really inspired the next generation of players to stand up for the occasion. In addition, she has spent some time dealing with the elite players on the tour and giving them losses – time and time again. Some of her victims include Sakkari, Coco Gauff, Belinda Bencic, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova.
In London, Jabeur has been phenomenal as she only dropped one set in five games – a surprise against Marie Bouzkova in the quarterfinals, but she managed to win 3-6, 6-1, 6-1. In the previous rounds, the Tunisian Mirjam Bjorklund, Katarzyna Kawa, Diane Parry and Elise Mertens sent.
Jabeur v Maria Prediction and tips
At this stage, anything can happen. Maria is experienced and has got a touch of fate towards her game, but Jabeur has momentum, form and an exceptional level of mastery on grass that has led her so far.
It’s a battle for skills vs. grit – one where Wed starts as the favorite, but Tatjana makes an underdog bet worth supporting. After all, she beat Sakkari and Ostapenko last week.
All in all, expect a great tennis match.
