Will Wimbledon finalist Ons Jabeur’s bold prediction come true?

Ons Jabeur has been on a tear in the lead-up to the Wimbledon final, but the run shouldn’t come as a surprise to the world No. 2.

Back in January during an interview with the WTA, Jabeur predicted that she would win Wimbledon this year.

While there are no guarantees, the No. 3 seed has looked almost unstoppable heading into Saturday’s final. The 27-year-old Tunisian has lost just two sets in her last 24 matches. She’s also on an 11-match win streak and is unbeaten on grass this season.

However, opponent Elena Rybakina has also been on fire, striking the most aces of anyone on tour with 217 (including 49 at Wimbledon alone). Those aces helped her upend Simona Halep in the semifinals.

Both Jabeur and Rybakina seem to be in peak form as they head into the Wimbledon final at 9 a.m. ET Saturday.

They also aren’t afraid of one another.

“I know how Ons plays. She knows how I play,” said Rybakina of the matchup. “We know each other well. We see how it’s going to go.”
