Anett Kontaveit v Ons Jabeur Head to Head
Jabeur leads the Estonian 3-2 head-to-head.
Kontaveit Takes Out Former Champion
Anett Kontaveit held off 2019 Qatar Open champion Elise Mertens in three sets to reach a third quarterfinal in 2022.
Kontaveit won 69% points on the back of her first serve and capitalised on three of eight break point chances, while saving seven of 10 to eliminate the Belgian 6-3, 0-6, 6-2.
The Estonian, who was 48-17 last season, is 11-2 this year. She began the season by reaching the semifinals of the Sydney International and then fell in the second round of the Australian Open.
Eleven days ago, the World no. 7 bagged her sixth career title by defeating Maria Sakkari in the final of the St. Petersburg Open.
Kontaveit is on a seven match winning run. She won all five of her matches in St. Petersburg and then pulled out of the Dubai Open. She had begun her Doha campaign with a 6-2, 6-3 victory against Croatia’s Ana Konjuh in the Round of 32 on Monday.
Jabeur Wins Another Three-Setter
Ons Jabeur has featured in three tournaments this year and reached the quarterfinals of all three. She was assured of the third on Wednesday when she edged past the Czech Republic’s Tereza Martincová in a three-set match.
Jabeur looked in cruise control in the first set, breaking her opponent thrice and wrapping up the set in less than 30 minutes.
With her back against the wall, Martincova fought back in the second. She broke the Tunisian’s serve twice and forced the decider. Jabeur didn’t start the third well either, falling behind 0-2 before getting the break back in the third game and then raising her level to win 6-1, 3-6, 6-3 in an hour and 36 minutes.
This was the second consecutive three-setter for the Tunisian in the tournament. She had lost the first set in the second round contest against Aliaksandra Sasnovich, but she bounced back to send the Belarusian packing with a 1-6, 7-5, 6-3 victory.
Ranked No. 10 in the world, Jabeur was a quarterfinalist in Sydney, but had to pull out midway during her last eight contest against Kontaveit. The Tunisian couldn’t feature at the Australian Open, but then made a comeback in Dubai and reached the quarterfinals again, only to fall to Simona Halep. Can she cross the quarterfinal hurdle on Thursday?
Kontaveit v Jabeur Prediction and Tip
Jabeur beat Kontaveit in Cincinnati and Indian Wells last year. She was unlucky in Sydney this year, although she was a set down, yet she could have staged a fight back had she been alright. Both players have been in top form over an extended period of time. Expect a three-setter with the Estonian advancing.
