A female player rated so low in the globe has not reached a Wimbledon final since Serena Williams in 2018 when the American was ranked 181. Billie Jean King was the last unseeded woman to achieve it in 1963.

“Tennis is crazy,” Vondrouová, a former junior No. 1 and runner-up at the 2019 French Open remarked on the court. “Yeah, I really don’t know what’s going on right now; it’s an incredible feeling.”

Jabeur has now lost her second Wimbledon final in a row, and she claims it is the most devastating of her career. This was her third defeat in a major final.

Jabeur would have been the first Arab and African woman to win a grand slam if she had won, but her 31 unforced mistakes lost her the match, and the wait continues.

“I’m not going to give up, I’m going to come back stronger,” she said to Centre Court, wiping away tears.
