Ons Jabeur shoots up to top ten WTA rankings

Tunisian tennis sensation Ons Jabeur has moved up to the top ten in the WTA rankings. She became the first Arab player to accomplish this feat. The gritty player has notched up 48 wins and her latest win came against Anett Kontaveit in the WTA BNP Paribas Indian Wells Quarterfinals. Her win total is more than anyone during this WTA season. She is going to play Spanish Paula Badosa in the Semi-Finals round of the Indian Wells Open. 

This is a dream coming true. Top 10 I know is the beginning. I know I deserve this place from a long time since I was playing well. But I want to prove that I deserve to be here, I deserve to be one of the top 10 players. I've been rejected by sponsors because of where I come from, which is so not fair. I didn't understand why before, I accepted it. I am really proud of the person I became today, just not relying on others. Everybody probably had a difficult career. I'm not saying I have the most difficult one. I didn't want to depend on a sponsor or someone who doesn't even care about tennis or sport in general. It gave me the courage to continue and achieve my goals, and I'm in the top 10 today.
