Ons Jabeur eased to world number two in the second round of Wimbledon with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Swedish qualifier Mirjam Björklund on Monday. A quarter-finalist in 2021 and fresh from the grass-court title in Berlin, Jabeur won just 54 minutes under the roof of Court One.

“Today I achieved my highest ranking and just four games left is a great start to the tournament,” the Tunisian said.

“It’s amazing to be back on Court One. The grass suited my drop shots and slices.

“Now I hope to go beyond the quarter-finals.”


Jabur will face Canada’s Rebecca Marino or Poland’s Katarjina Cawa for a place in the last 32.
