Match of the day

Ons Jabeur hits the floor

Ons Jabeur has had an amazing tournament (Simon Bruty/AELTC Pool)

Ons Jabeur became the first Arab woman to win a WTA title in Birmingham last month and had already knocked out former champions Venus Williams and Garbine Muguruza before a 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 victory saw seventh seed Swiatek added to the list. Sabalenka is enjoying her best run at a grand slam and is desperate to go further. This will be an intriguing clash of styles.
