Ons Jabeur won her first WTA 1000 title on Saturday, taking down Jessica Pegula 7-5, 0-6, 6-2 to win the Madrid Open.

It was a back-and-forth 1-hour and 54-minute victory for the 10th-ranked player in the world. It’s her second career title after she became the first Arab woman to win a Hologic WTA Tour singles title last year.

On hand for the win were all of Jabeur’s siblings as well as the head of the Tunisian tennis federation.

Jabeur has had a great start to the year, finishing runner-up at the Charleston Open and making a quarterfinal run in Stuttgart. In total, she’s won 12 clay-court matches so far this season, leading the tour on the surface. It’s her 20th match win overall on the season.

She’s expected to return to her career-high No. 7 in the world.
