Tunisian Ons Jabeur is hoping the romantic atmosphere of Paris will help her quest for a maiden Grand Slam title after reaching the Roland Garros quarterfinals for the first time on Monday.
The world No 7 was heartbroken after losing the Wimbledon and US Open finals last year but the 28-year-old stormed into the last eight at Roland Garros with a 6-3 6-1 win over Bernarda Pera.
Jabeur became the first African player to reach the quarterfinals at each of the four majors in the Open Era.
“Paris is always romantic, day or night. Winning here will definitely be an amazing memory for me,” Jabeur told reporters.
