Tunisian tennis star Anas Jaber put in a stellar performance after beating Kazakhstan’s Elena Rybakina yesterday, Saturday, to secure her place in the Chicago American Championships final for 500 points.
Anas became the most victorious player in 2021, with 44 wins, ahead of the second-ranked in the world, Belarusian Irina Sablenka (43 wins).
By reaching the final of the Chicago Championship, Anas made sure to reach the highest ranking in her career as she will secure her 14th place in the world ranking, the best Arab ranking at the level of women’s tennis.
The Tunisian star will also repeat the feat of Moroccan tennis legend Younes El Aynaoui, who previously ranked 14th in the world.
Anas will play in the final match of the Chicago Championship, against Spain’s Garbine Muguruza, and if she wins the title, she will rise to the 12th world ranking, to be unique in an unprecedented Arab achievement for women and men.
