Fighting number one Kerber back on the tennis
Angelique Kerber is again the number one tennis world. The 29-year-old from Kiel benefited from her recent ascension from the short-term cancellation of her rival Serena Williams for the hard court tournament in Indian Wells. The American has knee problems will not be able to play at the next tournament in Miami.
The 35-year-old would have had to reach the semifinals in California to defend their top position. Because of my knees, I could not train. I am disappointed that I cannot play she was quoted on Tuesday on the organizer’s website. She is looking forward to returning as soon as possible.
Her rival Kerber was already number one between 12 September 2016 and 30 January 2017. In the new ranking, which will be published on 20 March, it is back on top. She did not start well into the season. Serena Williams had replaced the Kielerin after the Australian Open as an industry leader. The American had written tennis history in Melbourne and with her 23rd Grand Slam victory Steffi Graf was replaced as a record holder. In Indian wells she had won the tournament in 1999 and 2001.
Tennis star Angelique Kerber continues her gala form from the pre-season this year. Also at the tournament in Doha was already concluded in the first round. Last year, Kerber failed to reach the top of the Indian Wells tournament. This time she has hardly any points to defend. It looked quite different for Serena Williams. The seven-time Australian Open Winner reached the end of the final in 2016, which is why they have 650 points.
Even before the Williams refusal, it was clear if the American failed to make the first appearance since winning the Grand Slam tournament in Melbourne, before the semi-finals Kerber would automatically be the number one no matter how they did it. In their opening game Kerber could play against her Fed Cup colleague Andrea Petkovic at the $ 7.699 million event under the leadership of new tournament director Tommy Haas.http://www.sportseducationexpo.com/fighting-number-one-kerber-back-tennis.htmlhttp://www.sportseducationexpo.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/tennis.jpghttp://www.sportseducationexpo.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/tennis-300x286.jpgTennistennis online,tennis results
