Wimbledon 2021: Tunisian Ons Jabeur beats seventh seed Iga Swiatek to reach quarter-final

Tunisian 21st seed Ons Jabeur produced a stunning display to overcome Polish seventh seed Iga Swiatek and secure her first Wimbledon quarter-final.

The victory sees Jabeur, 26, become the first Arab woman to reach the last eight at the All England Club.

The world number 24 recovered from a set down to prevail 5-7 6-1 6-1 against 2020 French Open champion Swiatek.

Jabeur will meet second seed Aryna Sabalenka next after the Belarusian beat Kazakh 18th seed Elena Rybakina.

The Tunisian - whose victory at the Birmingham Classic last month made her the first Arab woman to win a WTA title - followed up her straight-set win over five-time champion Venus Williams with a stunning comeback victory over 2017 champion Garbine Muguruza on Friday to continue her best run at Wimbledon.
