Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur set for US Open third round

After a 7-6 (10-8) 6-0 second round win over Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur will face American and world number four Sofia Kenin in third round at this year US Open in New York.

On Thursday, the 28-year-old Jabeur was stretched in the first set which went into a tie-breaker, but the world number 31 and 27th seed eased through the second set to dispatch her opponent 6-0.

Second seed Kenin recorded a straight sets 6-4 6-3 win against Canadian Leylah Annie Fernandez.
