Tunisian Anas Jaber continued her wonderful career this year and yesterday became the first African player to reach the final of the United States Championship, the last of the four grand slams in tennis. Fifth-seeded Jaber beat French 17th Caroline Garcia 6-1 6-3, and Šviontik defeated sixth Belarusian Aryna Sabalenka 3-6 6-1 6-4.
This is another impressive result for Gaber, who also became the first African female professional to reach the Wimbledon final in July, when she lost to Elena Rybakina of Kazakhstan. At the time, Jaber, nicknamed in Tunisia as the “Minister of Happiness”, became the first Arab to reach the final of a major tournament and the first African in the professional era. Jaber achieved one achievement after another, as she became the first Arab player to reach the quarter-finals in a major tournament at the Australian Open 2020, the first Arab to win a professional tournament in Birmingham 2021, and the first Arab among the top ten in the world rankings to reach the runner-up and the first to be crowned with the title of one of the thousand tournaments in Madrid .
Gaber dominated Garcia from start to finish in a one-sided match that lasted one hour and six minutes. “The feeling is great,” said the 28-year-old Tunisian. After Wimbledon I felt a lot of pressure on me, and I’m really comfortable with keeping my results.” “I started the hardwood season a bit badly, but I’m happy to reach the final here,” said the daughter of Palace Hilal, who is crowned this year in Madrid at the end of April and then in Berlin in June. After the experience she gained, especially this year, Jaber, who adopted a special tactic, added that she is ready for a historic crown: “I decided to follow my coach’s instructions 100 percent for the first time (laughing)… I will give everything (in the final) I’m here to win the title.” Jaber compared her experience at Wimbledon with the current one at Flushing Meadows: “There I was living a dream. Here, I seem to live in reality. It might be a habit.
Garcia, on the other hand, entered the match after a stellar tournament start, but the defending champion Cincinnati succumbed in her first major semi-final, losing four break points to Jaber, who she beat for the fifth consecutive time in the WTA Championships. Jaber added about the confrontation with Garcia, who knew a beautiful streak with 13 wins before the semi-finals: “I know she was playing great now, and this puts a lot of pressure on you. It wasn’t easy for me, but I was ready physically.”
In the second match, Švontik came from behind against Sabalenka in the decisive set 2-4 to win an important 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 at Arthur Ashe Stadium. This is the first time that the two-time Roland Garros champion has reached the final of the Flushing Meadows Championship. Šviontik said her bathroom break after losing her serve three times in the first set was crucial to turning the score around. “I needed to go. I definitely felt lighter. I’m sorry this is disgusting.”
“I tried to use this time to think about what to change because when I was little I remember crying in the bathroom after losing a group,” the 21-year-old added. But this time I thought I had to change, and I actually solved the problem.” Sabalenka was looking to qualify for the first major final of her career, after losing the semi-finals of Wimbledon and Flushing Meadows last year. But the 24-year-old slipped, wasting her lead in the third set as she lost four games in a row.
“My team keeps telling me that I should be proud of myself, after what I’ve achieved in recent months,” Sabalenka said. But I don’t feel like it. I feel that in the three matches in the semi-finals, I did not take much advantage of the many opportunities I had.” As for Šviontik, who is looking for a second major title this year after Roland Garros, she explained: “In front of Arena, you need a lot of energy to push it. I failed in the first set, but I’m happy to make up for it later.” Her latest coronation at Roland Garros came at a great start to the season that witnessed 37 consecutive victories and six titles, including Roma when they beat Jaber in the final. And about facing the Tunisian in the final, the first in the world said: “Facing her was always difficult. It will be a physical match. Her hand is very good and she is very strong from the back line.”
