Ons Jabeur uses a Wilson Pro Staff racket

Ons Jabeur of Tunisia has to be one of the most popular players on the WTA Tour, and much of that is down to her delightfully varied game.

Her racket sponsor is Wilson and she uses their Wilson pro-Staff 97 Countervail racket in competition.

The Wilson racket is set up to give her a balance of power and control.

The version of the racket she uses is based on the Roger Federer frame and is known to be great for hitting balls on the run and generating stroke speed for lots of spin variations.

Jabeur also attracts attention from great sponsors and backers that keep her going on tour.

She is kitted out by Lotto, with the Italian sportswear brand taking over from Lacoste as her main kit sponsor.

Jabeur has been a brand ambassador for Qatar Airways since December 2020 and she enjoys the backing of Tunisie Telecom from back home.

She has been sponsored by Joossoor since 2018 and wears their logo on her sleeves in competition.

Jabeur also has commercial relationships with Chinese automaker Haval and MaximiliaN Jewelry.

It seems just a matter of time before Jabeur wins a Grand Slam.

Former World No 1 Andy Roddick opined that Jabeur is a better player than some of the recent Major champions and has an all-court game that gives her four realistic chances to claim Grand Slam titles.

Roddick claims that he is a big fan of the Tunisian not just for her game but because of how she conducts herself off the court.

“Her game draws you in, the emotion with which she plays; I think the variety with which she plays. As a fan of hers, I think it’s simultaneously stressful and amazing that I don’t know what’s coming next,” Roddick told Eurosport.

“But I think the thing that makes me a fan is you hear behind the scenes what other people say about her. And if you hear it enough times, you probably know that it’s true. So I think that makes you a fan also.”

Roddick would be shocked if Jabeur ended her career without winning a Grand Slam title.

“She is a more complete player – I could play on two surfaces, not all of them. So that lends itself to her having four chances a year, as opposed to maybe I had a chance in Australia, but definitely not in Paris,” he said.

“Her game seems to translate and she seems to have the tennis IQ to switch in and out. (An) Open (draw) just means that our next champions haven’t won yet, that’s all it is. It means the familiar faces are getting older, or not present, or are injured, or we are in a transitional period.

“There’s no reason for her not to win a Grand Slam. You could say that there are people that she is probably better than that have won.”
