Muguruza & Jabeur Aiming For Tennis Glory


- Grant Whittington

Sunday’s Chicago Fall Classic is all about boosting chances for competing in the Akron WTA Finals Guadalajara. And gunning hard for exactly that will be women’s tennis players Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur and Spaniard Garbine Muguruza.

Both tennis players will be eager to boost their tally for 2021 as well as making it all the way to qualification for the big event at Guadalajara – meaning there’s much to win but also a great deal to lose.

They’ll be chasing and hoping to catch world No. 1 Ash Barty, No. 2 Aryna Sabalenka, and No. 5 Barbora Krejcikova who have all already sealed their spots following their performances at this year’s US Open at Flushing Meadows. Tennis betting sites will be offering great odds on all the matches, and fans can get their wagers in early, or live during play.

All About The Finals Now  

The two women came into Indian Wells ranked No. 8 and 9 respectively on the Porsche Race Leaderboard during the build-up to the WTA Finals.

The Porsche Race for points is vital both for players and at new betting sites, as it will determine which eight tennis players get to compete in this year’s Finals, which will this year November for the very first time ever be hosted in Mexico.

For Muguruza, the location marks a special occasion. Originally from Venezuela, she said she fully supports the event coming to the LatAm country and that she hopes this will mean a bigger interest being created in tennis in the region.

Muguruza will also be looking to secure her first WTA Finals qualification in 5 years. She last played in the event from 2015-2017, when it was hosted by Singapore. For the former No. 1, 2021 has been a year of comebacks and expansion as she made her way into an expanded tour in the fall. Tennis betting enthusiasts now know that she’s one to watch.

After having become accustomed to a largely Asian swing, Muguruza said Latin America marks a superbly exciting change. She said especially after remaining and practising in the US for the final stretch of the season, it’s been nice to relax on the beach in California during her run at Indian Wells.

2021 A Special Year For Jabeur

For Jabeur too, it’s been a phenomenal year so far. Currently living the best season of her tennis career, the Tunisian said she won’t be sitting back and relaxing any time soon. 2021 has been a year of firsts and especially one of many milestones for her journey as an Arab tennis star.

To this end, she’s already managed to tick off several big accolades this year – including becoming the very first Arab woman to make it into the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, finish a tennis season among the Top 10, and qualifying for the WTA Finals.

And now she has a real chance of becoming the first Arab woman to qualify for Guadalajara, and new betting sites are giving fans the chance to bet on her too.
