It's back to work for Angelique Kerber, who celebrated her first Grand-Slam victory in the Australian Open last Saturday. The German team will face off against Switzerland in the first round of the Federation Cup in Leipzig this weekend.
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.
Angelique Kerber is set to return to the No. 1 spot in the women's rankings after Serena Williams was forced to pull out of the tournament at Indian Wells. The German will now head the field at the Californian event.
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?
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.
