Ons Jabeur upset former champion and 11th seed Garbine Muguruza in three sets to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon 2021.

The world No. 24 defeated 2017 winner Muguruza 5-7, 6-3, 6-2 to reach the last 16 at the All England Club for the first time.

“It is [the best day of my tennis career], seriously. I’m not saying this so you guys cheer for me for the next round, but this is my favourite centre court [laughs],” Jabeur said in her on-court interview.

“The energy is amazing, I won here. So I’m so, so happy. [I was] a little bit nervous [at the start]. She plays unbelievable on grass, everybody knows that.

“I lost against her last time, so this was kind of my revenge here. In a nice way. It was very difficult moments in the first set, not winning our serves. But then after, the second set – I tried to stay more calm and enjoy playing here.”

Muguruza edged a tight opening set in which she broke Jabeur three times – including at 5-5, before serving the set out at the second attempt.

The talented Tunisian responded by securing the lone break of the second set to go up 5-3 – before holding from 0-40 to level the match.

The 26-year-old broke Muguruza to love in the opening game of the decider, and again for 4-1, before sealing a superb triumph.

Jabeur will take on seventh seed Iga Swiatek in the fourth round.
