Elena Rybakina

Rybakina stunned Simona Halep in the last round as she defeated her in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 6-3 in a little over an hour. Beating the former champion has certainly lifted the morale in the camp of Rybakina. 

Ajla Tomljanovic was the toughest opponent for Rybakina, the only occasion she dropped a set. The Kazakhstan star also beat Petra Martic, Qinwen Zheng and Bianca Andreescu on her way to the final.

Ons Jabeur 

Jabeur on the flip side also had to come off a tough competition as she beat Super Mom Tatjana Maria in the semifinal beating her 6-2, 2-6, 6-1. Marie Bouzkova of the Czech Republic also gave a tough fight to Jabeur, but she prevailed in three sets. 

Elise Mertens in the fourth round meeting was the only seeded player Jabuer has faced at the tournament. So far the 27-year-old’s journey has been smooth and simple as she tries to win her first-ever Wimbledon title.
