Jabeur won her biggest title to date at the 2022 Madrid Open, a WTA 1000 event, becoming the first Tunisian and Arab player to win at this level, and reached her first major final at the 2022 Wimbledon Championships.
Speaking during her press conference after the final against Swiatek, the new World No. 2 opened up about her emotions after both those matches, disclosing that she dealt with her Wimbledon loss by crying and letting out her built-up emotions.
At Wimbledon, Jabeur became the first woman from Africa to reach a Grand Slam singles final, and regretted the fact that it did not translate into a historic title for the continent.
“Well, I cried. First thing I did. But it was good to let out some emotions,” Ons Jabeur said when asked about her method of dealing with the Wimbledon loss. “Yeah, didn’t play for a week. It was huge in Tunisia. I’m going to tell you, I did rest but not really because I had a lot of things to do.”
Jabeur further expressed that she will try to enjoy her US Open success a bit more and even get some well deserved rest after a hectic hardcourt swing. She will then get back to work with an aim to end the season on a positive note.
“Definitely this time I’m going to enjoy a little bit my time, enjoy these two weeks, rest a little bit and prepare for the end of the season. Just another tournament coming up, also in Tunisia, so it’s going to be great for me to prepare for it,” she added.
