The prediction was that Coco Gauff would advance to the semi-final of the 2024 French Open with a three-set victory over Ons Jabeur. Well, Coco lived up to that, dropping the first set, but then upping her game and taking the next two to set up a semi-final clash with the winner of the Iga Swiatek vs Marketa Vondrousova clash. The final score, 4-6 6-2 6-3. The victory takes Gauff’s head-to-head record against Jabeur to 5: 2.

Jabeur was in sublime form, during the match, which prompted Gauff to comment, “She’s a tough opponent and well-loved in Roland Garros. She was playing very well the whole time and hitting a lot of winners, which is something I am not used to against anybody. So, I was just trying to be aggressive towards the end. It got a little tight in the last couple of match points, but then I did what I needed to do to win the match.”

Gauff was struggling with her forehand and serve, and not playing her best tennis, whereas Jabeur was getting a lot of things right, including several cross-court drop shots. Jabeur had Gauff scampering all across court, but the latter managed to turn things around in the second set, buoyed by the support she got from the crowd in Roland Garros.
