Wimbledon Quarterfinals 2021: Aryna Sabalenka defeats Ons Jabeur to storm into semifinals for the first time – 21st seed Ons Jabeur, who became the first Tunisian to enter the quarterfinals of Wimbledon, has lost to second seed Aryna Sabalenka in Wimbledon 2021 quarterfinals. The latter made it to the semifinals of Wimbledon for the first time after a straight-set victory over Jabeur.

The 23-year-old Belarusian No.2 seed swept her opponent aside in 73 minutes winning 83 per cent of points on first serve and saving six of seven break points. This wil be her first Grand Slam semi-final.

Jabeur’s fifth service game, at 4-5, was critical, extending to eight deuces before Sabalenka got the break on her fifth set point. Jabeur initially fought back, going 40-0 up on Sabalenka’s first service game of the second set. However, the world No.4 recovered to not only save the game, but then broke Jabeur.

The Tunisian did not go quietly, breaking back to 2-2. But she was broken again at 3-4. Although Jabeur did force a break point in response Sabalenka could not be denied. She will now play Karolina Pliskova in the semi-final.

Sabalenka has earlier defeated 18th seed Elina Rybakina, little-known Osorio Serrano, Katie Boulter, and Niculescu.
