Tunisia’s tennis star Ons Jabeur has revealed the reason behind getting some help from former world number seven Fernando Verdasco. The 29-year-old is currently taking part in the Madrid Open where she has booked her place in the round of 32 after securing a win in the second round against Serbia’s Anna Karolina Schmiedlova with a score of 6-4, 5-7, 6-3 on Thursday.
Jabeur was recently seen training with the 2009 Australian Open semifinalist in Madrid. Talking about it, the three-time Grand Slam runner-up stated that she is working with Verdasco because of his positive energy. “I’m trying to get the Spanish mentality on the clay, apparently it’s not that bad to play with that,” said Jabeur. “We’re close friends and he just had his third baby, so we’re having the energy of a new baby in the team. It’s nice to have him, I’ve always been a fan of him as a player, but also as a person because he has such amazing energy. He’s helping me this week, so hopefully we can have more matches together.”
Jabeur, who is going through a bit of time in the ongoing 2024 season, will face Canada’s Leylah Annie Fernandez in the round of 32 of the ongoing WTA 1000 event on Saturday.
