Out but not down: Ons Jabeur’s historic Wimbledon run ends
Jabeur lost in straight sets to Belarussian Aryna Sabalenka, the tournament's number 2 seed. Both women were looking to reach their first-ever Wimbledon semi-final.
The Tunisia-born player addressed her fans on Twitter, thanking them for their support.
Both her run at Wimbledon - in which she beat two Grand Slam champions - and her creative style of play gained her new supporters. Fans said they expected the 26-year-old to bounce back quickly and return to Grand Slam tournaments stronger than ever.
Sabalenka, who will face the tournament's eighth seed Karolina Pliskova in the semi-final, was full of praise for Jabeur.
"It's always tough matches against Ons, she is such a great player and an amazing person, so it's always tough to play against her," Sabalenka said after her victory on Centre Court.
