The Tunisian tennis player, ranked third in the world, Anas Jaber, announced today her withdrawal from the Doha and Dubai tournaments due to a “minor surgery” that she is scheduled to undergo soon. Jaber wrote on her Facebook page, “In order to take care of my health, my medical team decided to perform a simple surgery with the aim of returning to the stadiums and obtaining good results.”
She added that she had to “withdraw from the upcoming tournaments in Doha and Dubai as a result”, and said that the decision “breaks my heart” and explained, “I’m sorry to the fans in the Middle East who were waiting for me.”
Jaber, 29, was eliminated from the second round of the Australian Open, the first of the four major tennis tournaments, by losing to Czech Marketa Vondrousova. Jaber experienced a wonderful season in 2022 when she reached the finals of Wimbledon and the United States Championships, which enabled her to rise to second place in the ranking of professional players, in an Arab-African achievement, before she finally fell to third place.
