It’s unclear at this point if physical pain provoked Jabeur’s tears or if she was suffering from an emotional issue.

The second-seeded Jabeur wiped away tears during the second set of the quarterfinal loss.

It was Haddad Maia’s first Top 10 win since the 2023 Roland Garros when she beat No. 7 Jabeur 3-6, 7-6(5), 6-1 to reach her maiden major semifinal in Paris.

Two-time Wimbledon finalist Jabeur was coming off one of her best performances of the season.

A masterful Jabeur ripped 35 winners dismantling Emma Raducanu 6-4, 6-1 in her Abu Dhabi opener on Wednesday.

Hopefully, Jabeur, who seemed to be in good spirits earlier in the week engaging with Abu Dhabi fans, will feel better.
