Winning Wimbledon was not a dream of mine.

The French Open was the dream of many children.

I can't imagine being at Wimbledon when I was a kid because we don't have any grass courts.

When I got to the quarter-finals last year, it became a dream because I enjoyed being here.

I wanted to come back and win here.

Unfortunately the other members of my family don't have visas, so my brother Hatem will not be able to come over on Saturday.

They will be cheering for me when I come back.

Hatem and possibly my brother-in-law will be here because my parents and sister can't.

I hope it's a great day.

Ons Jabeur takes a selfie with Tunisian fans at Wimbledon
Third seed Jabeur became the first Arab player to reach a Grand Slam singles final with a 6-2 3-6 6-1 win over Tatjana Maria on Thursday

It would be a double celebration if I won the title because it is one of my favorite holidays. It is similar to our Christmas.

We usually celebrate by eating barbecued sheep. I don't like it.

I might have my own barbecue after the celebration.

If I win on Saturday, the celebrations back home will be even more crazy.

Even though it is a difficult time for the people of Tunisia, I still like to see the joy.

Many people back home are going through difficult times.

I want to continue to bring joy to the people by winning more matches.

After every match at Wimbledon there are some fans from Tunisia waiting outside the media balcony, where players do the post- match interviews, and they cheer, chant and celebrate.

It is a pleasure to have them at Wimbledon.

'When I was three I commentated on my mum's matches'

People say that I have inspired them because of my accomplishments.

My mother is the inspiration I get.

When I was three years old, she took me to a tennis club to play tennis.

I used to play with my mother. She was asked how she could lose the match.

I used to spend a lot of time in the club.

I had a lot of fun, but sometimes I didn't eat.

The way I held the racquet and kept the ball on the racquet made people think I had a talent.

I began playing after everything was good.

When I was a kid, I played in a small club in my home town ofMonastir. I used to play tennis in hotels because there weren't many tennis clubs there.

I played my first international tournament when I was 10 years old.

At the age of 13 I traveled to Tunisia to study and train at the same time. It was a sport specific high school that helped me train more and develop as a player.

When I won the French Open junior title in 2011, it was my first big success, but then I had a hard time transitioning from juniors to the professional tour.

I am one match away from a senior Grand Slam title after figuring out how to play with my game.

If I can win on Saturday, it will be better.

'I will ask my little squirrel friend for more luck'

I have watched many matches at Wimbledon throughout my career.

I remember seeing Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Simona Halep win their titles here.

I was cheering for Andy, but I was also very happy for Roger.

I told you in an earlier column that I loved everything about Wimbledon.

I would like to be a champion and a member of the All England Club.

My preparations for the final won't change from the other matches and I will relax between practices.

I have been to Hyde Park and St James' Park many times during the tournament and I will try to do the same today.

I think I had some good luck brought to me by a little squirrel that I had a good connection with.

He will help me on Saturday.

He ran to me after seeing that I had food. Squirrels can stay and be connected with you. My food was being eaten by him.

I enjoy being with the animals and nature.

Hopefully this positive energy will help me win the Wimbledon title.

Ons was talking to Jonathan.
