Jabeur reaches Wimbledon semifinals, makes more history for Arab tennis

Tunisian world No. 2 Ons Jabeur made more history at Wimbledon on Tuesday, defeating the Czech Republic’s Marie Bouzkova 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 to become the first Arab or North African-born player – man or woman – to reach the semifinals of a Grand Slam singles event.

A year after she became the first female Arab player to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals, Jabeur stormed back from a slow start to dominate the final two sets against her 66th-ranked opponent.
