Ons Jabeur Has Sights Set On The No. 1 Ranking, Winning Slams
After reaching the last two Grand Slam finals and finishing No. 2 in the world, Ons Jabeur wants more. She wants the top.
The Tunisian star said outright she wants to become No. 1 and win Grand Slam titles. That’s her goal.
“I want to be No. 1 in the world,” Jabeur said. “Not just the number but also the level and the discipline around it. I want to win more titles and get that Grand
Slam title, for sure.”
Jabeur revealed that she and her husband have pictures of trophies on their lock screens that she is targeting. She want say what the event is.
“It’s been always great for me that I tell you guys what I want to achieve, I tell you my goals. I put it out there, make a promise to you guys. I hate to break my promises. I see it that way.”
Jabeur begins her 2023 Australian Open campaign Tuesday against former French semifinalist Tamara Zidansek. She is projected to meet either Adelaide winner Belinda Bencic or Aryna Sabalenka in the quarterfinals. Jabeur, who didn’t play the Australian Open last year due to a back injury, made her first Slam quarterfinal in Melbourne in 2020.
“I’m going to put more pressure on myself because I feel like sometimes you I know a lot of players are hungry to do more,” Jabeur said. “It’s going to be very interesting this two weeks.”
