Angelique Kerber stunned the tennis world with her Australian Open victory over defending champion Serena Williams. On Monday she returned to a warm welcome in Germany and jumped to second place in the WTA rankings.
German tennis star Angelique Kerber has returned to the top of the women's singles rankings. This comes despite her early exit at the tournament at Indian Wells in California.
By her own admission, Angelique Kerber has had her share of ups and downs. Most recently, the world No. 1 was eliminated by a qualifier in Rome. So far, 2017 has not been her year. Could this be about to change in Paris?
For Angelique Kerber, 2016 was a career-defining year. Long seen as a player who couldn't win the big matches, the German finishes the year as the women's world No. 1 tennis player.
Novak Djokovic eased into the fourth round of Wimbledon after an early exit in the Grand Slam last year. Germany's Angelique Kerber topped American Shelby Rogers to advance into the last 16.
