Ons Jabeur continued her incredible run at Wimbledon as the 21st seed defeated seventh seed Iga Swiatek 5-7, 6-1, 6-1 in the fourth round.

After knocking off Venus Williams in the second round and Garbine Muguruza in the third round, the Tunisian added the Pole to her list of big-name scalps as she advanced to her second major quarterfinal.

Jabeur broke in the opening game of the match, but Swiatek belted a backhand cross-court and forehand to earn chances to break back in the fourth game.

The Tunisian saved them, but was broken next time she served. The 21st seed clattered a cross-court forehand to again breach the Swiatek serve to take a 4-3 lead.

Serving for the set, Jabeur watched as the Pole belted her backhand repeatedly, the last of which gave her the break back and she broke again two games later to take the set.

What occurred next was nothing short of stunning. Jabeur broke twice to open the second set, her forehand doing most of the damage and after saving three break points, she held a 4-0 advantage.
