Wimbledon 2023: Marketa Vondrousova has unfinished business since her 2019 French Open Final loss while Ons Jabeur came from behind to def. Aryna Sabalenka all on Day 11

by Sports Benches

The 2023 Wimbledon Ladies singles final is all set for tomorrow after two excellent final 4 matches from Day 11’s play on Centre Court where a brand new winner will be crowned for the first time with the Venus Rosewater Dish trophy. We got Marketa Vondrousova controlling the court after getting away from Elena Svitolina’s good build up base through both stages with the straight sets win (3-6, 3-6). Then there was an epic three-set showdown with Aryna Sabalalenka having the early say after a tight opening set but Ons Jabeur went from a set down to such a unreal comeback there towards the end on what is going to be her 2nd Wimbledon Final’s attempt (6-7 (5-7 tie), 6-4, 6-3).

Elena Svitolina has been emerging as of late with back-to-back recent grand slam semi-finals. Sadly, her breakthrough final will have to wait for another time. Gotta love her fast start including the 2nd set restart, but she just couldn’t bridge the other half run where the Ukrainian was so far behind for the majority. Speaking of Vondrousova, not only she caught up to her opponent’s brilliant start but the Czech did so well to dominate the court on her own. Thanks to a 1st half lead, she was so aware of what Svitolina can be capable when it comes to the opening momentum & from there she got away through such a better pull on the run home with patience.

Now looking at this next one & it was so hard to look back by Sabelenka who overcame such a close opening stage run with the 1-0 lead. She was close at one point towards booking a spot in the Final but sadly couldn’t stop her with narrow the 2nd set loss before she couldn’t keep it up in the end there. And speaking of Jabeur, she might have felt just short towards the end of the opening stage but what a comeback indeed. She has been playing extremely well in the way she stood up to against the reigning Aus Open champ with patience before the rewards eventually came her way at at 1-1 after another brilliant 2nd stage followed by an easy end to the decider there for the win.

Will Vondrousova get back to unfinished business after her first grand slam final loss to Ash Barty a few years ago at 2019 Roland Garros? Otherwise, can Jabeur get her breakthrough this time around & be the first African-Arab player to win a grand slam? All will be found out on centre stage as we now turn our attention to two more men’s Final four matches later tonight – one is Jannik Sinner v Novak Djokovic followed by another straight after this in Carlos Alcaraz v Daniil Medvedev.
