Ons Jabeur v Venus Williams Head to Head
This is the first meeting between the two ladies on the WTA Tour.
Jabeur Starts Strong in London
Tunisian No. 1 Ons Jabeur had an easy first-round match against the Swede Rebecca Peterson. Needing just an hour, Jabeur dispatched Peterson with 6-2, 6-1 to set up the clash with Williams.
Following that near-perfect performance, Jabeur will fancy her chances of taking on a rather weary-looking Venus Williams. If it helps, the momentum is on her side. Just a couple of weeks ago, the 26-year-old became the first Arab woman to win a WTA singles title by conquering the Birmingham Classic.
In the preceding weeks, she had reached the fourth round in the French Open and the third round in Madrid Open. With that, Jabeur was also the runner-up in the WTA Charleston. Needless to say, for her to make the transition between clay and grass courts so seamlessly certainly makes her a formidable opponent.
It is because of this kind of overall consistency (YTD win-loss tally of 29-11) that she is now enjoying her career-best singles ranking on the tour.
Venus Finally Wins One
Unlike Jabeur, Venus had to fight hard for her first-round win here in Wimbledon. Facing Monica Buzarnescu, the 41-year-old needed two hours and 40 minutes to beat the Romanian with 7-5, 4-6, 6-3. It was by no means a vintage Venus performance, seeing that she committed 38 unforced errors.
After that exhausting affair, Williams will need to brace for possibly yet another marathon match at SW19.
A few years ago, this would not have been a major problem but over the last couple of seasons, her form has deteriorated on the tour. Case in point, her last singles win in 2021 came in the Australian Open, where she reached the second before losing to Sara Errani. In all the subsequent events up until now, Williams has lost her opening-round matches.
Currently ranked World No. 111, Williams still poses a definite threat solely owing to her incredibly rich pedigree which entails five singles titles and six doubles titles here at Wimbledon. Plus, she has been playing professional tennis since Jabeur was just three years old.
Jabeur v Williams Prediction and Tip
Williams may not have it in her for another big game but such are the conditions. Jabeur, riding high on momentum and confidence, will fancy an upset by toppling the former World No. 1.
That said, expect this to be a three-setter seeing that the American is more than likely to put up a good fight.
