Ons Jabeur Australian Open 2023: Odds, next match and predictions

Check out these predictions on Ons Jabeur Australian Open 2023 matches, chances of winning, and much more.

Ons Jabeur Australian Open 2023 Odds

Ons Jabeur is a name that not many tennis fans were familiar with up until the last couple of years. The Tunisian player has completely turned her career around since 2020, however. And as it happens, it was the 2020 Australian Open where this surge in her career performances began. Back then she made the quarter-finals, and thanks to her consistency over the last 3 years on tour, she is now the number 2 ranked player in the world.

Therefore, it’s no surprise to see that she is one of the favourites as reflected in the bookmaker odds shown here:

Given the 13.00 odds that Jabeur has as the outright winner, she is the joint 4th favourite to capture the title. She’s on a par with both Gauff and Pegula concerning the odds, as they both have 13.00 too. However, at number 2 in the world, you’d have thought that her price would be a bit lower. Then again, historically speaking, she has struggled the most at the Australian Open compared to the other slams.

Marketa Vondrouaova sera la rival de Jabeur en la segunda ronda. La tenista checha realizo una gran come back para ganar su primer match ante Risk Amritraj. Luego de perder 7-6 en el primer set, Vondrouaova evito que su rival tomara impulso de nuevo, y con un contunde 6-1 en el segundo set, y luego 6-4 en el ultimo, Marketa completo su comeback.

Ons Jabeur ya tuvo problemas para vecer a su primer rival, la cual apenas entra en el top 100 del ranking WTA, asi que no puede relajarse ni descuidarse como lo hizo previamente. Su siguiente rival demostro que en su mejor nivel puede hacer frente a sus rivales. De hecho ha pasado 8 años desde el primer Marketa Vondrouaova vs Ons Jabeur, en esa ocasion gano la checa, pero en los tres h2h posteriores, la tenista tuneza se quedo con la victoria.

  • Jabeur vs Vondrouaova 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 (Stugart,19-04-22)

Round 1 Result – Ons Jabeur Australian Open 2023

On the first day of the competition, everyone expected the Tunisian player to win in a relaxed manner, however, she came close to losing and being the first big surprise of the tournament. Tamara Zidansek had one of the toughest pairings, yet the experienced Slovakian tennis player did not struggle to overcome the number 2 in the WTA ranking.

The first set was all over, as each had two break points, and at different times of the match, both had the advantage but the other did what was necessary to equalize. In the end this set was decided in an exciting tiebreak, which Jabeur won 8-10. In the second set, Zidansek was surprised and evened the match, but she couldn’t keep the rhythm and was beaten in a convincing way.

  • Zidansek vs Jabeur 6-7, 6-4, 1-6

Ons Jabeur Recent Matches 2022 / 2023

With Jabeur being ranked number 2 in the world, it’s no surprise to learn that she wins more than she loses. After all, that’s how you get to the top of the game in tennis, and in any sport for that matter. This brings us to her last five matches, which you can check out right here:

  • Jabeur vs Noskova – lost – 3-6, 6-1, 3-6
  • Jabeur vs Kostyuk – won – 7-6, 7-5
  • Jabeur vs Cirstea – won – 7-6, 6-1
  • Jabeur vs Pegula – won – 1-6, 6-3, 6-3
  • Jabeur vs Sakkari – lost – 2-6, 3-6

Jabeur played just one tournament in 2023, which was the first Adelaide International event. She posted a couple of wins against decent players in this event, yet she sustained a surprise loss to Linda Noskova in the semi-final. Prior to that, Jabeur hadn’t competed since the WTA Finals in November 2022. That’s where she beat the number 3-ranked Pegula but also lost to the number 5-ranked Sakkari.

Jabeur Injury update: Completely Fine

Like many of the top players set to play the Australian Open, Ons Jabeur is taking a rest week prior to the first slam of the year. This isn’t because she has any injury worries, however, which cannot be said for others in the field. It’s simply to make sure that she is 100% ready and rested for the start of the Australian Open. And nothing has been publicly mentioned regarding any injuries either.

This leads us to feel confident in stating that Jabeur is fit and healthy prior to the start of this event in just a few days’ time.

Ons Jabeur History At Australian Open

Looking back at Jabeur’s performances at the Australian Open, they haven’t been stellar, to say the least. Her first appearance in Melbourne came back in 2015, which is where she lost in the opening round. This was followed by a failure to reach the main draw in 2017, as Jabeur lost in the final round of the qualifiers. To make matters worse, when she was involved in the main draw again in 2018 and 2019, she lost her opener. That would make it three times in a row that Jabeur fell at the first hurdle in the main draw at the Aussie.

However, this is also the time at which something seemed to click in Ons Jabeur’s career. We say that because when she returned to Melbourne in 2020, she went all the way to the quarter-finals – her best slam performance of the entire 2020 season. Since then, Jabeur hasn’t loved the hard courts in Melbourne, however. She lost in the 3rd round the following year in 2021, and she didn’t play in 2022.

With this in mind, this puts her overall win/loss record at the Australian Open at 6-5. Again, that’s not what you’d expect from a player who is number 2 in the world. This also makes her overall winning percentage at the Australian Open just 55%. So really, Jabeur will be hoping to improve these statistics massively at the 2023 Australian Open.

Ons Jabeur Australian Open 2023 Prediction – quarter-finals

It goes without saying that as the number 2 seed, Jabeur has been given a favourable draw for this tournament. Things look pretty straightforward until Jabeur reaches the 4th round, assuming all goes as expected. This is where she might play against Samsanova or Haddad Maia, both seeded players. However, we feel that Ons Jabeur will still get the win against either of these players on a hard court. But if she does win this match, she faces an enormous test in the quarter-finals.

At this point, she could play against Bencic or Sabalenka, although the most likely opponent is Sabalenka. As it happens, Sabalenka is the second favourite to win the tournament, with good reason. Sabalenka also has a 3-1 head-to-head record against Jabeur, which means things don’t look great for the Tunisian at this round.

That’s why we feel that she will probably go out in the quarter-finals, if not earlier.
