A dream come true

Last year, Jabeur became the first Arab player to win a WTA title, after emerging victorious at the Birmingham Classic. 

Since then, the Tunisian has continued to make history and has climbed up to second in the world rankings. 

Her performances also caught the eye of Serena Williams, who partnered with Jabeur in the doubles at Eastbourne.

Despite everything she’s achieved of late, today’s win no doubt ranks as her finest career moment so far. 

“It is a dream come true after years and years of work and sacrifice,” she said afterwards.

“I’m really happy it is paying off and now there is one more match to come.”

Rybakina impresses  

Meanwhile, in the other semi-final, Elena Rybakina beat former champion Simona Halep in straight sets. 

Similarly to Jabeur, Rybakina became the first player from Kazakhstan to reach a major final and did so in impressive fashion. 

The 23-year-old dismantled Halep with some devastating groundstrokes –– easing past the Romanian without much trouble.

Rybakina has dropped just one set so far in the tournament and has looked at home on the grass surface. 

Speaking about facing Jabeur in the final, the 17th seed said.: “I think it’s going to be a great match [against Ons Jabeur]; she’s a great player, [a] very tricky player – it’s not going to be easy to play against her drop shots and volleys. 

“I think it will be a great match – I think I already did the work so it’s time to enjoy it out on court.”
