This Week in Sports - Let’s Talk Tennis

Are you ready for some exciting updates from the world of sports?

While soccer and padel were relatively quiet this week for fans, this gives us an excuse to talk about tennis. What a week it was: one of the biggest for tennis so far this year! 

We saw some big wins from singles stars, doubles teams, and some up-and-coming junior players. We also have some special news about a limited edition shirt for a certain Tunisian star.

Let's jump in and get you caught up. Here's what happened this week in tennis!

The Unstoppable Ons Jabeur Strikes Again

Wimbledon. Fourth round. The great Elise Mertens is not strong enough to stop Ons Jabeur's run. As an absolute dominator on the court, Jabeur did not lose a single set. The 27-year-old Tunisian won the match between the two Lotto athletes with sets of 7-6 (9) and 6-4.

The game was a stunning combination of styles on the court, with Elise's clean and geometric approach as opposed to the variations and intense cuts of Jabeur. For fans, it was truly a legendary match to witness.

Jabeur now advances to her second consecutive quarter-final at Wimbledon. She will face Marie Bouzkova of the Czech Republic for a place in her first major semifinal.

It’s a magic moment for a Lotto Sport tennis player who has risen to number 2 in the world. This victory also marks a historical best ranking for African tennis! 

The dream continues: Reach for the stars, Ons! The whole world is watching.

Lotto Celebrates Ons With a Limited Edition T-Shirt

To thank and honor the superstar player, Lotto has created an exclusive T-shirt with a front print featuring the words "Yalla Habibi"— the motto that accompanies Ons both on and off the court.

The launch of the T-shirt was jointly announced across social channels in collaboration with Ons’ on Saturday, July 2nd.

We’ve created a version for both women and men, and you can get your own piece of lotto-exclusive gear here.

Back to Wimbledon With Other Exciting News

With only a week since the start of Wimbledon, Lotto Sport is gaining increasing visibility thanks to a number of great tennis players surprising us with their performances on the court!

As the protagonist of an extraordinary tournament, German Jule Niemeier has reached the quarter-finals. Boosted by a sensational victory over the number 2 seed, Estonian Anett Kontaveit, she then went on to defeat Heather Watson with sets of 6-2 and 6-4. 

We will once again admire Jule’s power and precision in her next match against fellow German Tatjana Maria.

We’re also following Alizé Cornet, who bested number 1 overall Iga Świątek with sets of 6-4 and 6-2 to make her way to the final 16. An amazing achievement for the French player who will challenge Croatian-Australian Ajla Tomljanović in the next round. 

In doubles news, German pair Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies have also made it to the final 16. Next up for them: the English duo of Ken Skupski and Jonny O’Mara.

The Junior Championships Kick Off

Good luck to the young and talented Lotto Sport players who start their run for the title at Wimbledon!
