The journey of Ons Jabeur

Recent 2nd player in the world behind the untouchable Iga Swiatek, Ons Jabeur (27) has already marked the history of tennis by reaching this rank, becoming the highest ranked African player in history. But the Tunisian wants more and wants to become the first North African player to lift a GC trophy. To reach the final, Jabeur successively got rid of Mirjam Björklund, Katarzyna Kawa, Diane Parry, Elise Mertens, Marie Bouzková and Tatjana Maria. Before this Wimbledon 2022, Jabeur had never risen higher than the quarters of a GC tournament with the 2020 edition of the Australian Open.

The journey of Elena Rybakina

Installed in 17th place in the WTA rankings, Elena Rybakina does not come out of nowhere. Yet she had never passed the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam before the London fortnight. The Kazakhstani was solid on the English turf as she conceded only one set in the quarter-finals against Alja Tomljanovic. In the first round, the Moscow native dismissed Coco Vandeweghe before going on against Bianca Andreescu, Zheng Qinwen, Petra Maric, Alja Tomljanovic and Simona Halep. If successful, she would become the first Kazakh player to win one of the four GC titles.
