Thanks to her magnificent wins at the Australian Open and the US Open, Angelique Kerber became the world No. 1 in 2016 – the first German since Steffi Graf. It was a rise to the top that had been on the cards – in 2014 she led Porsche Team Germany to the Fed Cup final as the team’s No. 1. In 2015 she won four WTA tournaments – including the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart and became a Porsche Brand Ambassador.

In 2016, she claimed not only the Grand Slam titles in Melbourne and New York but also successfully defended her title in Stuttgart. It was up until then the most successful year of her career – she was also the runner-up in Wimbledon, at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and the WTA Finals in Singapore. After ending 2017 without a win, she started the 2018 season with the title in Sydney before crowning her fantastic comeback by winning Wimbledon. After the difficult pandemic year in 2020, she caused quite a stir again in the first half of 2021 when winning her 13th WTA title at “her” tournament in Bad Homburg, Germany and then going on to reach the Wimbledon semi-finals.
