‘Minister of Happiness’ is what Ons Jabuer is known for, became the reason for the fear for the too seeded players.
World No. 2 Jabeur, who is competing at the WTA Finals in Fort Worth, Texas, alongside Iga Swiatek, Caroline Garcia, and five other top-8 players, recently made the decision to perform a Halloween surprise prank on the two. The Tunisian dressed in all-black with a skeleton mask, showing off her frightening side. Jabeur, called “the Minister of Happiness” for consistently being cordial and fostering joy among teammates on the WTA tour, made the decision to switch things up for the day and rename herself “the Minister of Scariness.” The African No. 1 player claimed it was her joy to frighten her rivals for a change.
In what they assumed to be a pre-tournament interview, Ons Jabeur went on to frighten Iga Swiatek and Caroline Garcia. Despite the fact that both players were afraid, World No. 1 Swiatek was horrified by the scare because she was focused on answering a question.
