Former World No. 2 Ons Jabeur’s journey as a tennis pro has been far from easy. Born and brought up in Tunisia, she did not have access to as many resources as many other players on the tour. But she continued to work hard and try her best to win a grand slam. However, it was not to be.

A trailer of the film is out and has been posted on various social media platforms over the internet. Ons Jabeur herself reposted the teaser on her Twitter account. Along with that she also wrote, “This is Me. Coming soon on Tod.” The movie is about her journey overall but it also focuses on her missing out on winning the Wimbledon trophy twice in a row despite trying very hard.

In the trailer, she mentions how winning Wimbledon was more than just a trophy and how after not winning it, she was destroyed. Jabeur says, “It was the toughest loss of my career as it emotionally destroyed me. It was the tournament that I said okay I am gonna win and then I can take a break and have a baby. So not only not winning Wimbledon but the idea of having a baby also vanished with the trophy of the tournament. I was haunted by fear by panic attack. After all I am just a human being. It’s a hell of a story.
