Ons Jabeur is still in the mix in singles at the Bett1 Open in Berlin, but the Tunisian trailblazer is already getting excited for next week, when she will take her place next to Serena Williams on the doubles court in Eastbourne.

“I’m still over the moon. I found out before the French Open, and it’s an honor and privilege to play with her,” she said, according to Ben Rothenberg of Racquet. “I’m actually nervous, but I’m going to try to be the doubles specialist for the next week and hopefully make zero mistakes.

“But it’s a great honor to play with such a legend, and to be able to really share the court with her is unbelievable because we never played each other and now we’re playing next to each other—we are a team. I’m really excited to be in Eastbourne next week, more and more excited than ever. Hopefully it’s going to be a great tournament for both of us.”

Jabeur, currently the WTA No.4, will also be playing singles at Eastbourne. Williams will just warm up with doubles before taking her place in the singles draw at SW19.

Williams owns a 98-13 lifetime record at Wimbledon with seven titles. She is currently on a two-match losing streak at the Championships for the first time in her career.

Serena to be coached by Eric Hechtman

It has been revealed that Serena Williams will be coached by Eric Hechtman during her comeback. Hechtman is also the coach of Venus Williams.

Serena’s former coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, is working with Simona Halep.
