Ons Jabeur has been heavily affected by some of the things that have gone on in the world in the past month, and she's used her platform as best as she can to speak on it.
Most of us are powerless when situations like these happen, and even those in more privileged positions can't really do much. Jabeur has a pretty big platform and uses it in many ways.
She's been at the forefront of plenty of charitable actions both at home and abroad. She has a huge Arab following, which doesn't need explaining, and she's been quite affected by what has been going on in recent weeks.
She's talked about it before and once again used her platform to urge for world peace. As cliche as it sounds, it's a genuine wish for so many people because everything else makes no sense.
Regarding Jabeur, she sent out a final message before departing Cancun after losing her final match at the 2023 WTA Finals, as her semifinal hopes disappeared after losing to Iga Swiatek in her last round-robin match.
The Tunisian, who grew up with war, once again reminded everyone that peace is the only way to go.
I’ve been growing up with this war. It’s been going on for so many years. I feel like this time it’s more and more. It’s definitely not helping me emotionally. It’s very sad. I feel hopeless. I just wish peace and I wish this thing would end. If I had magic like Harry Potter, I would stop every war right now.
While the wish might be genuine, it's likely never going to come true. Humans are complicated, and there was never really a time without an active war in the world, but hopefully, Jabeur gets to see her wish come true.
