Tennis - US Open: Ons Jabeur misses out on the title again

Ons Jabeur will wait again before lifting his first title in Grand Slam. The Tunisian was beaten in the final of the US Open by the Polish Iga Swiatek in two sets.

Second Grand Slam final. Second defeat for Ons Jabeur. The Tunisian lost in the final of the US Open on Saturday, September 10. The world No. 5 lost to the Polish Iga Swiatek in two sets (6-2, 7-5). The world No. 1 dominated the match from start to finish. And the Tunisian made a catastrophic start to the match allowing her opponent to lead 3-0. Ons Jabeur still came back to 3-2. But Swiatek took control. She finished the first set in half an hour (6-2).

Tensed, Ons Jabeur also missed the start of the second set. She concedes a 3-0. Very dynamic since the beginning of the match, Swiatek relaxes. Jabeur took advantage of this to get back into the match. She even managed to break and get back to 4 all. The 28 year old player was more enterprising and forced Swiatek to defend, pushing back the balls. Jabeur even had three break points in this game, only one of which would have allowed her to serve for the set. But she couldn't capitalize on them, missing a groundstroke each time.

Then, at 6-5, Swiatek held her first point as Jabeur served. It took a tiebreak to separate the two players in this set. The world's No. 1 player was very solid and won the match with flying colors (7-5). Ons Jabeur was on the verge of tears as she missed out on her second Grand Slam final this season.
