Jaber said: “It feels unbelievably good. There was a lot of pressure on me, I’m very comfortable. The off-court season started badly for me, but now I’m happy that I reached the final.”
Jaber is the first African player to reach the US Open final in the professional era. A disappointing Garcia ended her title dream and a 13-game winning streak in the biggest match of her career to date. Before the first dispatch, he observed a minute’s silence at Arthur Ashe Stadium in honor of Britain’s late Queen Elizabeth II.
This was followed by the second women’s semi-final between world number one Iga Swiatek of Poland and Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus. The final will take place on Saturday. A day later, the men’s final marks the end of the last Grand Slam tournament of the year.
