Jabeur participated at the US Open for the first time in 2010. In the girls' doubles, she and her partner Yulia Putintseva reached the quarterfinals by defeating Miyu Kato and Brooke Austin, Emi Mutaguchi and Risa Ozaki, but lost to Daria Gavrilova and Irina Khromacheva; and in the girls' singles, she reached the semifinals by defeating Risa Ozaki, Irina Khromacheva, Eugenie Bouchard and Caroline Garcia, where she lost to Yulia Putintseva. Earlier that year, she reached the final of the French Open at Roland Garros by defeating Sophia Kovalets, Caroline Garcia, Morgane Pons, Sloane Stephens and Irina Khromacheva. In the final, she was defeated by Elina Svitolina in straight sets.
Reaching the second girls' singles final in row at Roland Garros, she succeeded this time defeating Monica Puig in straight sets (7–6, 6–1). She became the first North African woman to win a junior Grand Slam tournament.
In 2012, she played her first WTA tournaments, and she played in the Summer Olympics, losing to Sabine Lisicki in the round of 64. In 2013, she reached the quarterfinals of the WTA event in Baku, winning over defending champion Bojana Jovanovski in the second round, and pushing her singles ranking into the top 200. She first appeared in the main draw of a Grand Slam tournament at the 2014 US Open, losing to Andrea Petkovic.
In her second main-draw Grand Slam appearance, she lost to Vera Zvonareva at the 2015 Australian Open. She represented Tunisia at the 2016 Olympics, losing to Daria Kasatkina. During 2015 and 2016, her ranking occasionally dropped below the top 200 for a few months at a time, but she ended 2016 ranked No. 193.
In the new season, she had steady success on the WTA Tour, bringing her ranking to 114 just before the French Open. She lost in the third round of the French Open qualifiers, but received a slot when Laura Siegemund withdrew from the main draw. She realized her first Grand Slam victory over Ana Bogdan, achieved her first win over a top-10 player Dominika Cibulkova in the second round, and lost to Timea Bacsinszky in the third.
In 2018, she achieved a breakthrough by reaching the final of the Kremlin Cup, becoming the first Arab player to reach a final on the WTA Tour. On the way to her first final, she won three qualifiers and four main-draw matches, defeating world No. 8 Sloane Stephens, world No. 21 Anett Kontaveit and world No. 12 Anastasija Sevastova. However, she lost to world No. 14 Daria Kasatkina in a tight match (6–2, 6–7, 4–6). With that tournament, she managed to re-enter the top 100 and reach a new career-high ranking of 62.
