A first-time Wimbledon women's singles champion will be crowned on Saturday July 15th. Sixth seeded Ons Jabeur takes on unseeded Marketa Vondrousova in the final. Jabeur is in the Wimbledon final for the second year in a row. The US Open final was also reached in 2022 but both title deciders were lost. Jabeur will move up to third in the rankings if beating Vondrousova. Three sets have been dropped by her on this way to this final. One was to Bianca Andreescu, the other two in her matches against defending champion Elena Rybakina and in the last four, Aryna Sabalenka. There have been six previous meetings between the pair and they are level at 3-3. Both matches played between them this year have been won by Vondrousova but they were on a hard court surface. There's been one meeting on grass and that was at Eastbourne two years ago with Jabeur getting the win.
When naming possible Winbledon finalists the name of Marketa Vondrousova wasn't mentioned often. That's not surprising as she'd never previously got past the second round of this grass court Grand Slam with three first round defeats. This is her second Grand Slam final, the other being a loss in the 2019 Roland Garros final. Her form at Wimbledon has been a bit of a revelation with four seeded players beaten. The highest of those was the fourth seeded Jessica Pegula in the last eight. The semifinals saw her beat wild card Elina Svitolina in straight sets. This could be a tight final and there may well be a few nerves flying around early on. We go for Jabeur to win the title,
