Give credit to Pera for getting to this point for the first time, but her service percentage has to improve if she’s going to advance any further. Jabeur is coming off a hard fought 3 set match, and it’s the sort of performance that can inspire more confidence moving forward. Jabeur also has a clear experience advantage, which is massive once you get to the business end of the tournament.
Give me Jabeur to make her first French Open quarterfinal.
