Ons Jabeur, the top-ranked Tunisian tennis player gets awarded for her brilliance on the court and off the court. With not one but two awards to her name, the 29-year-old makes her country proud.

For her fairness on the court and a wider initiative towards the sport where the Tunisian inspired millions of people to play tennis, she was awarded two awards. The Peachy Kellmeyer Player Service Award, was one of those prestigious awards which was voted by her WTA peers for her support towards other players and initiating help towards others. The world number 6 also won the Karen Krantzcke Sportsmanship Award, which was voted by the players as well. This award exemplifies the sportsmanship Jabeur has shown on the court, obeying the fairness and respect of the game.

The Tunisian has had a year to remember. The 29-year-old had been consistent throughout the season which included reaching a couple of finals and winning 2 WTA tours. Jabeur also managed to reach the quarter-finals of the French Open and the Finals of Wimbledon for the second time in two years. She may not have won a Grand Slam but her consistency in the game is praiseworthy.

Apart from her on-court achievements, Tunisian star Ons Jabeur also is vocal about her opinions regarding the ongoing world situations. She recently donated half her prize money to the ongoing Israel-Palestine war which has been a gruesome war for the citizens who are suffering without basic amenities.

This was one of the acts of kindness the Tunisian showed to the world and it did win her the award. The very emotional world number 6 held back tears as she spoke about the children who are stuck in the war and that she is helping mainly them.
