Professional tennis player Ons Jabeur represents Tunisia in international competitions. When the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) put her at No. 3 on June 20, 2022, she was the highest-ranked female tennis player ever. The top-ranked Tunisian in the ATP and WTA rankings, Jabeur is also the highest-ranked African and Arab tennis player in history. The WTA Tour has seen her win three singles titles, while the ITF Women’s Circuit has seen her win 11 singles and one doubles crown.
Her mother originally introduced Jabeur to tennis when she was three years old. In 2010 and 2011, she made it to the final of the junior major girls’ singles at the French Open, the latter of which she won. In 1964, Ismail El Shafei became the first Arab boy to win the Wimbledon boys’ singles title.

Because of an injury to her partner, Ons Jabeur, Serena Williams will miss Thursday’s quarterfinal match against Aleksandra Krunic and Magda Linette in Eastbourne. Serena Williams, 40, has been granted a wild card to Wimbledon, where she will now focus on her preparations.
As soon as long-time coach Patrick Mouratoglou began working with Simona Halep earlier this year, there were no more retirement rumors when Williams made her shocking announcement on June 14th.
Wimbledon champion Venus Williams was granted a wild card admission into the doubles at Eastbourne to help her warm-up before her next attempt to win a record 24th Grand Slam title. Two competitive matches have been played by the American at the Rothesay International since she was forced to withdraw from Wimbledon with a hamstring injury last year.
A close matchup between Williams and Ons Jabeur in the first round and Shuko Aoyama and Chan Hao-ching in the second put them in the semi-finals.
Injured: Jabeur ranked third in the world in singles, has been confirmed by the LTA in a social media post as having a right knee injury
“I feel fantastic,” Williams said after the victory on Wednesday. “As good as one can feel after having such a long time off. I was telling Ons that this was a great match and that they played exceptionally well in the second set, but that we were able to play under different conditions.
The match play and match practice was precisely what I needed and what I wanted to do while I was here, so I couldn’t have asked for more.”
Sorana Cîrstea, Yulia Putintseva, Maria Sakkari, and Daria Kasatkina were all beaten by her in the quarterfinals of the Italian Open in 2022, but she saved a match point against Kasatkina to win her 11th straight match. She was beaten by Iga Witek in the championship match.
When Jabeur reached the finals of the Italian Open on May 16th, 2022, he rose to No. 6 in the world, a career-high. Later, she competed in the French Open and was upset by Magda Linette in the first round after an impressive clay-court season. Despite holding a set and a breakpoint in the second set, Linette stunned her with a 6–3, 6–7(4–7), and 5–7 victory. However, on June 6, 2022, she reached a career-high position of World No. 4 following the tournament’s conclusion.
After Belinda Bencic retired in the second set of the 2022 WTA German Open in Berlin, she was crowned champion. As a result, on June 20, 2022, she rose to a new career-high of World No. 3. Prior to the 2022 Eastbourne International, Jabeur withdrew from the singles draw after initially entering the tournament as the tournament’s second-seeded player.
In the doubles draw, Jabeur was paired with Serena Williams, who had not competed in a major tournament since Wimbledon in 2021. Both Jabeur and Williams defeated Marie Bouzková and Sara Sorribes Tormo in the first round of the tournament to go to the quarterfinals.
