Angelique Kerber —
No woman, other than Halep, can match the highlevel consistency of Kerber for both style of play and results this season. The smiling, 30yearold German captured Wimbledon for her third major title. She also won Sydney; reached the semis at the Australian Open, Eastbourne and Dubai; and made the quarters at the French Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Doha and Rome. On the secret of her success, Chris Evert says, “Mentally, she’s so fierce and intense. She’s so
solid and doesn’t give you any free points.” Kerber is playing almost as well as she did two years ago when she finished No. 1. She’ll make
either the quarters or semis.
