Ons Jabeur v Anastasia Potapova Head to Head
This is the first meeting between the two ladies on the tour.
Jabeur Continues her Fine Run
Ons Jabeur may not have won a singles title yet in 2021 but she is undoubtedly one of the most consistent players on the tour at the moment. With a win-loss tally of 25-10 (including her ongoing run in Birmingham), she reached her career-best singles ranking as World No. 24.
Jabeur is coming off a rather brilliant clay season, comprising the runner-up feat in the WTA 250 Charleston Open and a semifinal run in the 500 series version of the same tournament.
Most recently, the 26-year-old reached the round of 16 in the French Open and Madrid Open, losing respectively to Cori Gauff and Belinda Bencic. Compared to her performance in the hard court tournaments earlier this year, this has been a lot better from Jabeur.
In Birmingham, she first beat Cat McNally and followed it with a win against Leylah Fernandez in the second round. That bout against the Canadian was quite a tricky one, seeing that Jabeur had to win the match in a final set tiebreak to reach the quarters. She ultimately took the game 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(3).
Potapova Breezes Past Mladenovic
Anastasia Potapova needed just an hour and 13 minutes to beat the experienced Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic 6-3, 6-3. With this quarterfinal appearance, the 20-year-old will now look to better her run from the Dubai Championships earlier this season.
In that event, Potapova delivered some stunning upsets against the likes of Madison Keys and Belinda Bencic to reach the quarterfinal where she fell to Barbora Krejcikova.
On clay, however, the Russian wasn’t this clinical. Except for WTA Turkey where she made it as far as the second round, Potapova never really made it past the opening matches. She fell in the qualifiers in the Madrid Open and Italian Open while in the Paris Slam, she lost to Fernandez in the opener.
As a former junior No. 1 and the Wimbledon girls’ singles champion in 2016, she is definitely talented, particularly on grass. Unlucky for her, so is Jabeur making this an interesting game to follow.
Jabeur v Potapova Prediction and Tip
Jabeur has the experience and overall momentum that should likely result in a win for her here. Potapova, however, can definitely land a few blows and give the Tunisian a run for her money.
