Tunisian tennis star Ons Jabeur is determined to make an impression once again at the Australian Open, the year’s first grand slam tournament.
Last year the 26-year-old reached the quarter-finals in Melbourne – her best ever result at a Grand Slam event.
“I’m trying to actually aim higher this year,” she told BBC Sport Africa.

“I honestly love Melbourne, I love Australia. No holding back I’m just going to go for it and play my game and be myself on the court.”
Jabeur was one of the players forced to spend two weeks in full quarantine in her hotels on arriving in Australia and so she took to social media to pass the time and show her training regime.
