The past Wimbledon finalists will face for the second year in a straight, this time in the quarterfinals. When they met last year, Ons Jabeur was ranked third in the world; now, Elena Rybakina has that position.
Fate had planned an exclusive rematch at Wimbledon for both of them. A year had passed since their last encounter, and they had not met at any other event. Jabeur was on the verge of winning her first Grand Slam when Rybakina took it away from her.
