Angelique Kerber is fit for Wimbledon

The Porsche Brand Ambassador has prepared intensively in Mallorca’s sun for the Grand Slam tournament in Wimbledon and is highly confident going into the year’s biggest tennis major.

Angelique Kerber has prepared intensively for the Grand Slam tournament. The tennis major takes place from 27 June to 10 July in Wimbledon. “I love playing on grass and Wimbledon is my favourite tournament by far. I’m really looking forward to it,” said the Porsche Brand Ambassador and Australian Open winner during the course of filming for a Porsche commercial at Düsseldorf’s Rochusclub. Who her first opponent will be will made known when the draw is made in London on Friday, 24 June at 10.00 a.m. local time. After reaching the third round in 2014 and the quarterfinals in 2015, she is aiming high this time around in the suburb in the south west of the city. She showed just how well she can play on grass in 2015 when winning the Wimbledon dress rehearsal in Birmingham.

Little time for relaxation for the German No. 1

Together with her coach Torben Beltz, Angelique Kerber travelled to Düsseldorf straight from Mallorca. The German No. 1, who in April won the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix for the second time in Stuttgart, had little time for relaxation on the Spanish holiday island. “We practiced hard on grass. Despite the rigours, it was a whole lot of fun and was for sure the perfect preparation,” she said. “I feel good and my shoulder is no longer troubling me. I’m 100 per cent fit for Wimbledon.”

In a making-of-video produced during the filming of the commercial, Angelique Kerber and Torben Beltz speak about the preparations for Wimbledon and the significance of the world’s most prestigious tournament.
