Angelique Kerber wins WTA Premier tournament

Angelique Kerber is in top form going into the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix: one week before the long-established tournament in Stuttgart’s Porsche-Arena (18 to 26 April), the 27-year old German won the WTA Premier tournament in Charleston.

In a thrilling final, the Porsche Brand Ambassador Angelique Kerber had to battle hard to defeat American Madison Keys 6-2, 4-6, 7-5 and win her first WTA title of the year.

The deciding set at the Family Circle Cup in the southern state was a real tennis thriller. Angelique Kerber was quickly 4-1 behind before she once again turned the match around with her fighting qualities. After two hours 15 minutes, the left-hander converted her first match point to clinch her fourth career WTA title after winning in Paris, Copenhagen (2012) and Linz (2013).

“It was a win I had to wait a long time for. That I had to battle so hard for it makes it all the more valuable for me,” said Angelique Kerber, who, before competing at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, will play for Porsche Team Germany over the coming weekend in the Fed Cup semifinal against Russia. “Now I’m looking forward to a week with my teammates and hope I can travel to Stuttgart and the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix with another success under my belt.”
