Angelique Kerber Beats Caroline Wozniacki at Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

After a phenomenal run at the Family Circle cup, Angelique Kerber (VCORE Si 100) secured her second straight title of the clay season at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. She defeated world No. 5 Caroline Wozniacki in a dramatic rollercoaster of a final match.



Coming back from a set down, Angelique grabbed the second set in a swift 25 minutes, landing three aces against the Dane. The third set proved to be a tense see-saw affair, with Wozniacki taking the lead only for Angelique to catch up time and time again. Just as the Dane thought she had the match, Angelique came back strong, breaking her opponent to take serve. As the match entered its final moments, it was Angelique that overpowered the Dane with a strong push at the end, seizing the final four games to win the title 3-6, 6-1, 7-5. Angelique has made a flawless start to this year’s clay season, currently standing at 11-0 in match wins. This victory also marks the German’s third WTA Premier level title.

Off court, Angelique met with young player Ante Cikojevic. Currently predicted to be one of the Top 3 under-12 players in Germany, he competes primarily in Stuttgart. Family Circle Cup champion Angelique shared her pro-level knowledge with the junior player as he embarks upon his career.

Angelique is conquering the clay season with the VCORE Si. With a unique grommet design that bites down on the ball, the VCORE Si gives players exceptional spin to land forceful winners in the opposing court. Juan Monaco (VCORE Si 98) recently made it to the finals at his local tournament, the Argentina Open, with the racquet, and also grabbed a doubles title earlier this year at the Qatar ExxonMobil Open.
