No. 2 Ons Jabeur loses to Vondrousova at Australian Open

MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Second-seeded Ons Jabeur has become the latest top player to exit the Australian Open in the second round. She was beaten by Marketa Vondrousova 6-1, 5-7, 6-1 in a match that ended a little past 1 a.m. Jabeur had complained of a knee problem after her opening victory at Melbourne Park and seemed out of sorts for much of the loss to Vondrousova. Jabeur was the runner-up at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open in 2022. The left-handed Vondrousova reached the final of the French Open as a teenager in 2019 but has never made it past the fourth round in 17 other appearances at Grand Slam tournaments. She is ranked 86th.
