Tunisian Ons Jauber is Ana's opponent at the start of the WTA Mallorca Open tournament. Jauber was successful in qualifications for the main tournament where the 19-year-old from Dubrovnik, the 28th ranked world tennis player, entered as seventh seed. In the last round of qualifications, the 22-year-old Tunisian, 106th in the WTA rankings, defeated the Belgian Yanina Wickmayer with 6: 2, 6:2.

In previous meetings with Ana, Jauber leads 1: 0. She defeated Ana in the semifinals of the ITF tournament in Nantes in the autumn of 2014 with 6: 2 and 6: 4. Konjuh and Jauber will play in the afternoon on Tuesday, June 20th.

The first seed of the grass tournament in Spain is Russian Anastasia Pavlyunchenkova, 17th in the world rankings list. If Ana is successful against Jauber in the 2nd round, she will play against the winner of the match between the 23-year-old Japanese Risa Ozaki, 74th world tennis player and former number one world tennis player, 27-year-old Belarusian Victoria Azarenka, who became a mother a couple of months ago and took a break from the tennis world for a while. The organizers of the Mallorca Open tournament sent her an invitation. Azarenka won the Australian Open twice. She has a secured ranking and will play at Wimbledon in early July.
