Tunisian Ons Jabeur would not be able to attain the feat of getting to the quarter finals of last year’s Australian Open after she lost to Japanese star Naomi Osaka at the third round of this year’s tournament.
The 27th seed fell to the superior power of the 3rd seed and former Australian Open champion 6-3, 6-2 in straight set in 1hour 18 minutes
The 23-year-old pounded down eight aces as she dominated her first career contest against the Tunisian world number 30 to set up a meeting with Spain’s twice Grand Slam champion Garbine Muguruza in the round of 16.
Muguruza had defeated Zarina Diyas 6-1, 6-1 in 56 minutes to reach the last 16 of the Australian Open.
