World No.6 Ons Jabeur will face the unseeded Marketa Vondrousova in the final of Wimbledon 2023 on Saturday, 15th July. The match is scheduled to start around 6.30 PM IST.
Ons Jabeur will be playing her third Grand Slam final in the last year after finishing runner-up at the 2022 US Open and Wimbledon 2022. However, she is yet to win a Grand Slam. Meanwhile, Marketa Vondrousova is a silver medallist from Tokyo 2020. The tennis betting sites have amazing odds for the Wimbledon 2023 final on their platforms.
Both Jabeur and Vondrousova are baseliners and possess a similar style of play. They both exhibit strong serving abilities and powerful shots from both sides of the court. However, the players also excel at utilizing angles in their game, particularly Vondrousova, who benefits from being left-handed.
Marketa Vondrousova and Ons Jabeur's Road to Final
Ons Jabeur produced a stunning comeback against No.2 seed Aryna Sabalenka to reach the ladies’ final as she came from behind to win the epic semi-final match 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-3.
On the other hand, Vondrousova defeated Elina Svitolina in a semifinal match between two unseeded players. This victory propelled her to her second Grand Slam singles final, marking her first appearance in a final since the 2019 French Open.
Saturday's final presents a completely different scenario compared to when Jabeur, with tears, exited the second round of the Australian Open in January, losing to Vondrousova. At that time current World No.6 was battling a knee injury that eventually necessitated surgery.
Head to Head
Out of their six prior encounters, the two players have evenly divided the victories. However, in 2023, Vondrousova emerged triumphant in both of their matches, with their most recent face-off occurring in the third round of the Indian Wells tournament.
So Ons Jabeur, despite being favourite in the final has to be on her toes and cannot take things lightly.
In the Wimbledon tournament, Ons Jabeur excelled, winning an impressive 80 percent of her first-serve points, the highest among all women's singles players. She has also secured three wins against top-10 players and two wins against top-5 players at Wimbledon. She also hit an impressive 168 winners while committing 110 unforced errors, maintaining a strong ratio of 80 winners to 43 unforced errors in her last three rounds.
Meanwhile, ranked 42nd, Vondrousova has made history as the first unseeded finalist in Wimbledon women's singles. Throughout the tournament, she has struck 141 winners while committing 130 unforced errors.
Marketa Vondrousova vs Ons Jabeur Prediction
Ons Jabeur possesses a level of experience that Marketa Vondrousova cannot match, making her a formidable opponent. This will be Jabeur's third final in her last five Grand Slam appearances, highlighting her consistent performance.
While Vondrousova reached the final of the 2019 French Open, she hasn't returned to the quarterfinals of a Slam until this week. Vondrousova will rely on her crafty style of play to unsettle Jabeur. However, we believe Jabeur is fully focused and prepared to seize her first-ever Grand Slam title.
