Ons Jabeur v Jelena Ostapenko Head to Head
The tally is tied at 1-1 with their last meeting taking place in the 2020 WTA Ostrava. Jabeur won that encounter 6-4, 6-4.
Jabeur Starts Strong in Eastbourne
In line with her title-winning and career-defining run in the Birmingham Classic, Ons Jabeur has started well in this tournament too. In the first round, she beat Marketa Vondrousova 6-3, 7-6(4) to continue her flawless record on grass courts this season.
The 26-year-old Tunisian, currently ranked #24 (her best singles ranking yet) looks solid to have another deep run this week. However, it may be a bit more challenging this time around, seeing that there some strong contenders in the field. Last week, she dispatched the likes of Anastasia Potapova, Heather Watson, and Daria Kasatkina.
That said, Jabeur has proven herself to be a strong opponent capable of delivering consistent results. In the Volvo Car Open, she made it to the semis while in the WTA 250 Charleston, she made it all the way to the final, losing to Astra Sharma.
Additionally, Jabeur has reached the fourth round in several other competitions as well like the French Open, Madrid Open, Miami Open, and WTA Dubai.
Ostapenko Hoping for a Good Run
Former top-five player Jelena Ostapenko has had a pretty mediocre season by her standards. She is seeking her first singles title since the 2019 Luxembourg Open and the closest she came to was reaching the quarterfinal in the Italian Open. There, the Latvian beat the likes of Johanna Konta and Angelique Kerber before succumbing to Karolina Pliskova.
In other tournaments this season, Ostapenko has been beaten primarily in the early rounds. In the Gippsland Trophy and the Miami Open, she did reach the third round but couldn’t do much to build on those wins.
Last week, she featured in the WTA Birmingham where she fell to Tereza Martincova in the third round. Before that, she played in the French Open where she lost her opener to Sofia Kenin.
As the 2017 French Open winner and the 2019 Wimbledon mixed doubles runner-up, Ostapenko has had a few trysts with big victories in the past. Over the last couple of seasons, her form has taken a sharp hit but has been on a path to resurgence since.
She has definitely started well in Eastbourne, beating the French Open runner-up Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in straight sets in the first round.
Jabeur v Ostapenko Prediction and Tip
Jabeur will start as the favourite here on account of her recent form and momentum. But given Ostapekno’s pedigree, she is more than capable of putting up a good fight.
