Ons Jabert’s historic run to the Wimbledon final began a year ago.

Ons Jabeur said the seeds of her historic quest for the Wimbledon final were planted 12 months ago when she told her coaches, “I’ll be back for the title.”

Jabeur became the first African woman to reach a Grand Slam final in the modern era when she beat close friend Tatiana Maria 6-2, 3-6, 6-1 in the semi-finals. On Saturday, she will face Russian-born Elena Rybakina, who currently represents Kazakhstan.
