Jabeur on chances of beating incredible Swiatek in Rome final: "She’s a human being, people should know that"

Ons Jabeur sits on an unbeaten streak of 11 games as she looks to complete the double of Madrid and Rome against the seemingly unstoppable Iga Swiatek.

But what of her chances after seeing off Daria Kasatkina, she says she is just a human being and beatable like any other player so she will head into the tie with belief.

“Playing Iga, someone didn’t lost a match since ever?. I think that was maybe missing the other players to believe more that they can beat her. She was playing unbelievable, I believe, in Miami-Indian Wells. Now she’s playing great.

"But she’s a human being. People should know that. I’m ready for the battle. I want to win tomorrow. It’s the finals. It’s not a first round or second round, it’s the final. Did I tell you how sick I am of losing finals?”

“Tomorrow for me personally, it’s going to be about believing in myself that I can win”, she added.

“I know I had a lot of matches that are played lately, back-to-back matches. It’s not like playing Indian Wells, Miami, you have a day off and everything. So physically it’s going to be very tough for me. I know that mental could overcome a lot of things”.
