'I Feel Much Better': Jabeur Forgets Painful Wimbledon Loss And Focuses On New Challenges

by Zachary Wimer

Ons Jabeur endured a tough loss at last year's Wimbledon, which left her depressed for a while, but she's put it behind her in anticipation of new success.

The Tunisian reached a level many didn't see her reaching. She played in three Grand Slam finals, regretfully losing all of them. The most recent one, Wimbledon last year, was the most painful loss as she was the big favorite to lift the trophy in the final.

She faced Marketa Vondrousova, a player who didn't have a good track record on grass, but the Tunisian player couldn't end as the victor. It was a painful defeat for her, very painful, and it haunted her for a long time.

Jabeur has spoken about it often since then, and her pain was easy to sense every time she spoke. Ahead of this year's Roland Garros, Jabeur declared that she's feeling much better right now.

It's a ver important summer with this Grand Slam, Wimbledon, and the Olympics, so it's great to hear that she's feeling good mentally, ready to challenge for titles again.

"I feel much better than at the end of last year. Mentally it was hard. Consciously we never realize, but I feel better. It's part of the past now. We learn from the past. If I keep thinking about it, it wouldn't be good for me. I know that it's part of the past, it's part of the game, and l'm starting new… I hope that I will make my dream come true one day."

Jabeur puts Wimbledon loss behind her

She's a fantastic player on clay and grass, and if she can find her best tennis, she'll be a contender for all of the upcoming big events this summer. She's still chasing that dream of winning a major, so expect a motivated Jabeur in the coming weeks.
