Ons Jabeur reveals her impression of Serena Williams after getting to know her

Ons Jabeur described Serena Williams as "a very nice person" and admitted that she is happy that the American occasionally finds time to send her words of encouragement. In June, Williams teamed up with Jabeur for her first tournament of the season in Eastbourne.

Leading up to Wimbledon, Williams decided to only play doubles in Eastbourne. As her partner, Williams selected Jabeur - something that the Tunisian will never forget. In their doubles team debut, Williams and Jabeur reached the semifinal before pulling out of their semifinal match.

Jabeur: Williams is unbelievably nice

"[Cherished playing doubles] A lot. We [did] not just play doubles, but I got to know a very nice person. We got a little bit closer. She's really unbelievably nice. I'm very, very lucky that she texts me from time to time to encourage me," Jabeur said, via Sportskeeda.

"Especially after the run in Wimbledon, she really was there, texted me, was very nice. I got to practice with her here also, which is unusual for Serena. Again, being part of her tennis career, maybe at the end, yes. I'm just very lucky.

I hope we can get little bit closer so she can give me some advices as a tennis player and also as a businesswoman. I'm really intrigued with that." On Monday, Williams made a winning start to her final US Open run. In the first round, Williams defeated Danka Kovinic 6-3 6-3.

Now, Williams is set to meet next Anett Kontaveit. Jabeur is rooting for Williams to make a deep run and stay in the tournament as long as possible. "I hope she could win as much matches as she can. It's just amazing. I mean, I'm always looking at the articles about the ticketing.

It's amazing. Wow, I'm just really impressed. We're really going to miss her on tour," Jabeur added. Meanwhile, Jabeur also made a winning start in New York as she defeated Madison Brengle 7-5 6-2.
