Wimbledon, Jabeur in the second round.  Sakkari eliminated

The Tunisian now seems to be Swiatek’s most accredited rival for the title. The Greek still disappoints against the 34-year-old German mother of two

Isn’t it that Ons Jabeur was forgotten too quickly in the predictions for the Wimbledon winner? Seeing the Tunisian play in these first three rounds, the doubt arises. She comes and how. Seeded # 3 is a feast for the eyes. Her game is frankly the most beautiful to watch, both among men and women. The Madrid winner put on a show against Diane Parry, beaten 6-2 6-3 in the first match of the day at Center Court. Are you the most accredited opponent of Iga Swiatek? This would not be surprising. In the round of 16 she will face an opponent by no means as easy as Elise Mertens, who has somewhat surprisingly eliminated former Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber. Mind you, the Belgian is someone who has always played well, but the German seemed to be on the ball and ready to hit the jackpot. No way. Mertens played a game of great depth, not far from that top 10-15 level in the world that has represented the world since 2018. In the end the match ended 6-4 7-5 for the player from Leuven.

Sakkari disappointment

The fifth-seeded Maria Sakkari (6-3 7-5 for Tatjana Maria, the 34-year-old German who has two daughters) leaves the scene (and this unfortunately is not new in the slams). The Greek really fails to convince in the bigger tournaments, and when she does (a few times to be honest) she always misses out on the big break. Consolation: he will return to number 3 in the world after Wimbledon, given the well-known issue of unassigned and removed points compared to 2021. Jelena Ostapenko is confirmed on the rise, comeback on Romanian Begu (3-6 6-1 6-1) and for the first time in the round of 16 of a Grand Slam since 2018: on the last occasion, four years ago in Wimbledon, he went up to the semifinals. Watch out for the Latvian, she could be a loose cannon given her total unpredictability.
