Rogers Cup presented by National Bank gets underway in four days! It’s time to get to know World No.4 Angelique Kerber.
In 2018, the 30-year-old from Bremen, Germany has been experiencing a bit of a revival after a tough 2017—a season in which she dropped to No.21. Angie, as some call her, won her first tournament of the year in Sydney and went on to reach the semifinals of the Australian Open, where she suffered a heartbreaking loss to Simona Halep (3-6, 6-4, 9-7). Kerber played in the quarters in Doha, the semis in Dubai and the quarters at the Premier events in Indian Wells and Miami. She also made it to the final 8 in Rome and at Roland-Garros, where she fell to the eventual champions both times. She kept the momentum going on grass in the semifinal in Eastbourne and then at Wimbledon, where she claimed the title and added a third Grand Slam trophy to her collection. Will she dominate the field at Rogers Cup?
On her last visit to Montréal, she earned a spot in the semifinals. No doubt that she’ll want to go even further this year.
