Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur fights back to beat Aryna Sabalenka and reach Wimbledon final

Ons Jabeur produced a superb comeback to beat Aryna Sabalenka and set up a Wimbledon women’s singles final against unseeded Czech Marketa Vondrousova.

Jabeur’s hopes were slipping away at a set and 4-2 behind but she fought back before riding a wave of momentum and support to win 6-7 (5-7) 6-4 6-3.

It means there is guaranteed to be a new Wimbledon and Grand Slam champion after Saturday’s final.

Vondrousova ended Ukrainian Elina Svitolina’s run by winning 6-3 6-3.

She is the first unseeded player to reach the Wimbledon women’s singles final in the Open era.

Tunisia’s Jabeur, the sixth seed, was beaten in last year’s final by Elena Rybakina.
