Tennis - Ons Jabeur: Four defeats already should we be worried?

Nothing is going right for Ons Jabeur at the start of the season. The Tunisian has already suffered four defeats. Worse still, she hasn't managed to string together two wins in a tournament.

Ons Jabeur weakened by her knee?

Will Ons Jabeur bounce back? The Tunisian has had a difficult start to the season. She has been unable to string together two wins in a tournament. Soundly beaten in the second round of the Australian Open by Russian nugget Mirra Andreeva in two sets (6-0,6-2), the Tunisian has since won just one match. That was against Emma Raducanu in the last 8 of the Abu Dhabi tournament. The ailing Tunisian broke down in tears midway through the second set when she lost to Beatriz Haddad Maia in two sets (6-3, 6-4).

Afterwards, she confided that she was still experiencing pain which she was unable to heal completely. "We go back a long way with my knee; some tournaments are good, some tournaments are bad. I'm sad because I was starting to feel better. The priority now is to find a solution. The Tunisian had undergone surgery for this problem last season. She nevertheless lined up in Doha, where she was eliminated in the first round. This was the umpteenth setback for the Tunisian, who had to skip Dubai to treat her knee. But she missed her comeback and was eliminated in the first round at Indian Wells by a top 150 player, Katie Volynets (n°130).

Ons Jabeur still reeling from her Wimbledon defeat?

A difficult start to the season for Ons Jabeur. The 28-year-old Tunisian doesn't seem to be recovering from her extremely painful defeat in the Wimbledon final. Since the former world number 2 lost more than just a final, she has seen her plans to have a child dashed. "People think I have this pressure because I want to do it for other people, which isn't true. It was a personal thing. If I'd won this final, it would have allowed me to have a baby right away. And that dream vanished. I was haunted by fear. It was the most difficult defeat of my career because it destroyed me emotionally, not just the idea of winning Wimbledon, but also because the idea of having a baby vanished with the Wimbledon trophy", Ons Jabeur confided in the documentary.

The world no. 6 is still traumatized by her three lost Grand Slam finals."It scares me so much to come back and play a final, but I know I have to do it...I want to do bigger things than just a Grand Slam, but it would be a shame, a missing piece if I don't. I have to win a Grand Slam, I have no choice, it could be my life's mission to do it."Ons Jabeur also has to face his demons: fear, anxiety and stress.
