Tunisian tennis player Anas Jaber detonated one of the big surprises in the current version of the French Open (Roland Garros) and overthrew the eighth-seeded Belarusian Arena Sabalenka from the third round of the tournament.
Anas Jaber, the 30th seed for the tournament, achieved her best achievement so far in the history of her participation by Roland Garros, as she qualified for the final price in the tournament for the first time in its history by beating Sabalenka today 7-6 (9-7), 2-6, 6-3.
Anas took a new step closer to equating her best achievement in the four major “Grand Slam” tournaments, which she achieved earlier this year by reaching the quarter-finals in the Australian Open.
Anas Jaber will meet in the fourth round with the winner of the confrontation scheduled also today between Spain’s Garbini Muguruza, the eleventh seed for the championship, and American Danielle Collins.
