Elena Rybakina beats Ons Jabeur in women’s singles final at Wimbledon.

Elena Rybakina beats Ons Jabeur in women's singles final at Wimbledon.

Elena Rybakina, a 23-year-old from Kazakhstan, became the first player from her country to win a Grand Slam title when she defeated Tunisian third seed Ons Jabeur in a gripping Wimbledon final. Rybakina had to fight back from a set down to win 3-6 6-2 6-2 in two hours and 17 minutes on Centre Court.

It was a see-saw match with both players having their moments, but Rybakina ultimately prevailed thanks to her more aggressive play. She hit 27 winners to Jabeur’s 12 and made just 16 unforced errors to her opponent’s 34. Rybakina also showed great mental fortitude, coming back from 0 to 40 down at 4-4 in the third set to hold serve and then breaking Jabeur in the very next game to seal the victory.

This was a huge win for Rybakina, who is currently ranked No. 15 in the world. She had never been past the third round of a Grand Slam before this tournament and had never even played on Centre Court at Wimbledon. But she rose to the occasion and played some brilliant tennis to lift the trophy.

This was also a bitter pill to swallow for Ons Jabeur, who was trying to become the first Arab woman to win a Grand Slam singles title. The 27-year-old had her moments in the match but ultimately couldn’t quite get over the finish line. She will be back and will hope to go one better at the next opportunity.
