Jabeur Keeps WTA Finals Semifinal Dream Alive With Needed Win Over Vondrousova

Ons Jabeur lost a few times to Marketa Vondrousova this year, but she won at the 2023 WTA Finals quite comfortably.

Vondrousova handed Jabeur one of the toughest defeats of her career when she bested her earlier this year at Wimbledon. It was a match Jabeur was widely expected to win, but it didn't happen.

She finally got her revenge at the WTA Finals, and it was a pretty convincing win for the Tunisian. Her first match against Gauff a few days ago was not good, as she was all over the place.

Today was kind of similar, but she was still far better than Vondrousova, who struggled immensely the entire day. She wasn't very good against Iga Swiatek either, so this isn't a huge surprise.

Control was the biggest problem, as she couldn't find the right angles on anything. Her serve was off as she committed a few double faults. She couldn't really keep the ball in play either, as the unforced errors kept growing and growing.

Jabeur played a very aggressive style, attacking her opponent, and she had some decent success. There were plenty of mistakes as well, but ultimately, it didn't matter as she was hitting winners as well.

The serve wasn't all that great, but it didn't need to be. Both sets were quite competitive, as both players had many break points, but Jabeur handled the madness and chaos a bit better.

It's what she's used to, as very few of her matches are simple. In the end, Jabeur finished things off in two sets. Neither player finished with an impressive line, but it was a competitive and close match, so the crowd didn't mind too much.

The final score was 6-4 6-3 for Jabeur. She finished with 21 winners and 29 unforced errors. Vondrousova had 11 double faults, 11 winners, and 25 unforced errors.
