Naomi Osaka vs Ons Jabeur Predictions


The 2019 Australian Open champion has not been given an easy draw, but so far Naomi Osaka has made it look very easy. The third seed has dropped eight games in two matches against potentially tough opponents.

Osaka looks totally confident and has won her last 16 matches. Jabeur is playing great tennis over the past two years but even she might not be able to disrupt Osaka’s flow.

  • Osaka has won 4 of her last 5 matches by a margin of 7+ games
  • The world no. 2 has conceded 1 break of serve at the Australian Open so far
  • Jabeur has lost two of her last three matches vs top-10 players in 18 games or fewer

Head to Head


This will be the first match between Naomi Osaka and Ons Jabeur.

Naomi Osaka Form


Osaka won her third Grand Slam title at the US Open last September and is a former Australian Open champion (2019). She came in as one of the favourites but seemed to have a very tough draw.

So far Osaka has made mincemeat of her tough draw. She beat three-time quarterfinalist Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova 6-1, 6-2 in 68 minutes, then ousted former world no. 4 Caroline Garcia 6-2, 6-3 in 61 minutes.

Jabeur could be a more difficult opponent because she is not a straightforward power hitter like Pavlyuchenkova and Garcia and Osaka herself, but an unpredictable variety player. 

But if Osaka plays like she has in her last two matches, it doesn’t matter who she’s playing; she should still win easily.

Ons Jabeur Stats


Nationality: Tunisia
Age: 26 (28 August 1994)
Height: 5’6” (167cm)
Plays: Right-Handed
World Ranking: 30
Career High: 30 (January 2021)
Career WTA Singles Titles: 0
Career Grand Slam Singles Titles: 0
2021 Titles: 0
Australian Open Best Result: QF (2021)

Ons Jabeur Form


Jabeur had the misfortune to be in ‘hard quarantine’ and not allowed out of her hotel room for 14 days. The Tunisian player has nevertheless played well at the Australian Open, beating Andrea Petkovic and Anna Karolina Schmiedlova.

Jabeur saved both break points she faced in a 6-3, 6-2 win over Schmiedlova, and converted four of five break points on her opponent’s serve. Those are impressive stats and shows that Jabeur is playing very well on big points and feeling confident.

The world no. 30 reached the quarterfinals of the Australian Open in 2020, beating a roster of good players. She relies on variety and unexpected change-ups to disrupt the rhythm of her opponents.

Verdict

Two of Ons Jabeur’s last three matches against top-10 players have seen her overpowered in 18 games or fewer. That should be the case again on Friday. 

Naomi Osaka has won four of her last five matches by seven games or more and it looks likely this trend will continue.
