Ons Jabeur vs Elise Mertens: Preview

Ons Jabeur has started off brilliantly at the US Open. In her opening round, she went past Alizé Cornet in straight sets. Post that, the way she thrashed María Camila Osorio Serrano in her second round shows that she has found the winning momentum.

Maria was never actually in the game. Ons bageled her in the first set and dropped just one game in the second. Jabeur would be extremely high on confidence going into the third round. At the same time, Elise Mertens would also be riding high on confidence as she absolutely thrashed her opponent in straight sets in her second round.

She defeated Valentini Grammatikopoulou without much hassle, but she had to fight really hard in her first-round match against Rebecca Peterson. Mertens lost the first set but made a wonderful comeback in the next two sets. Both the sets went into tie-breakers, but Mertels kept her cool under pressure and eventually started off at the US Open with a win.
