Ons Jabeur is among five women's seeds eliminated on day four of the Australian Open in 2023. The humiliating loss that Ons Jabeur suffered at the hands of Marketa Vondrousova at the Australian Open made her the latest seeded player to be eliminated from the tournament early.

The Loss

Backstage, the Tunisian player who had been seeded second broke down in tears after learning that she had been defeated 6-1, 5-7, 6-1. The 28-year-old tennis player arrived in Melbourne having competed in the championship match of each of the previous two Grand Slam tournaments, but he has yet to win his first major title.

On day four of the tournament, Jabeur was one of five seeds that were eliminated in the second round. Veronika Kudermetova, Anett Kontaveit, Liudmila Samsonova, and Irina-Camelia Begu all suffered defeats earlier on Thursday, but fourth-seeded Caroline Garcia and fifth-seeded Aryna Sabalenka were victorious.

In a match that lasted one hour and 52 minutes, France's Caroline Garcia defeated Leylah Fernandez of the United States to advance to the final of the 2021 US Open. Meanwhile, Belarus' Aryna Sabalenka defeated Shelby Rogers of the United States 6-3, 6-1.

In a match against Vondrousova that lasted past 01:00 local time on Rod Laver Arena, Jabeur made a total of fifty unforced errors and had her serve broken eight times. The match was marred by errors and went on for over an hour.

This victory marked the first time that Vondrousova, a former finalist at the French Open, has defeated a player ranked in the top 10 at a Grand Slam event. In the third round, she will take on fellow countrywoman Linda Fruhvirtova.

Earlier, the 21-year-old American qualifier Katie Volynets defeated the ninth seed from Russia, Kudermetova, by a score of 6-4, 2-6, and 6-2.

Volynets, who is ranked 113 in the world, is the first American qualifier to reach the third round of a Grand Slam tournament since Lindsay Davenport in 1993. Volynets is competing in her sixth main-draw match at a Grand Slam tournament.

I've never played in a stadium this packed and that many people keeping the energy up for me,

she said about her time on Margaret Court Arena.

Sabalenka will play Elise Mertens after the Belgian defeated Lauren Davis 6-4, 6-3, and Volynets will face Zhang Shuai after the Chinese 23rd seed defeated Petra Martic 6-3, 6-3. Volynets will play Zhang Shuai after Sabalenka plays Elise Mertens.

After the German's three-set victory over the Romanian's challenge, which lasted three hours and twelve minutes and consisted of a 5-7, 7-5, and 6-3 score, Garcia will face Laura Siegemund in the third round.

Magda Linette of Poland defeated Estonia's Kontaveit in three sets, 3-6, 6-3, and 6-4. Magda Linette will now compete against Ekaterina Alexandrova.

Ons Jabeur Facts

Ons Jabeur is a professional tennis player from Tunisia. She achieved a career-high Women's Tennis Association (WTA) ranking of world No. 2 on June 27, 2022. Jabeur is Tunisia's current No. 1 player and the highest-ranked African and Arab tennis player in WTA and ATP history.

She has three WTA Tour singles titles, as well as eleven ITF Circuit singles titles and one doubles title. In 2022, Jabeur finished second at both Wimbledon and the US Open, becoming the first Muslim and Arab player (male or female) to reach a Grand Slam final.

Her mother introduced Jabeur to tennis when she was three years old. She reached the French Open junior major girls' singles finals in 2010 and 2011, winning the latter and becoming the first Arab to do so since 1964.

After nearly a decade of primarily competing at the ITF level, she began competing more regularly on the WTA Tour in 2017. In 2019, she was named Arab Woman of the Year. Jabeur became the first Arab woman to reach a major quarterfinal at the 2020 Australian Open, a feat she repeated at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.

At the 2021 Birmingham Classic, she became the first Arab woman to win a WTA Tour title. Jabeur won her most recent title, the 2022 Madrid Open, a WTA 1000 event, becoming the first Tunisian and Arab player to do so.

Final Words

Donna Vekic of Croatia defeated Russian Samsonova with a 6-3, 6-0 victory in one hour and six minutes. The match lasted for a total of one hour and six minutes. In the third round, Vekic will compete against Nuria Parrizas-Diaz of Spain.
