Bio She is a German professional tennis player who is currently ranked world No.1 in women's singles tennis by the Women's Tennis Association (WTA). Having made her professional debut in 2003, Kerber rose to prominence upon reaching the semifinals of the 2011 US Open, at which time she was ranked no. 92 in the world. She achieved a career-high ranking of world No. 1 on September 12, 2016, becoming the twenty-second and oldest player to achieve the number one ranking for the first time. At the 2016 Summer Olympics, Kerber won an Olympic silver medal while representing Germany.

A left-hander known for her aggressive counter-punching all-court game, Kerber has won 10 singles titles, most notably her two major titles—the first at the 2016 Australian Open, and the second eight months later at the 2016 US Open. She has won at least one title on every surface on the WTA Tour, achieving this feat in 2015 by winning Charleston (green clay), Stuttgart (red clay), Birmingham (grass) and Stanford (hard).

Angelique Kerber was born in Bremen, to a Polish father, Sławomir Kerber, and a German mother, Beata (née Rzeźnik), and has one sister, Jessica. She started playing tennis at age three and eventually joined the junior circuit. In 2012, Kerber moved to Puszczykowo, where her maternal grandfather built the Tennis Academy 'Angie' for her. She made inroads at events in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, but did not win a junior title before 2003, at which point she had already turned professional at age 15. Kerber speaks German, Polish and English. She holds dual German-Polish citizenship, due to the principle of Polish jus sanguinis nationality law, but has competed for Germany since the start of her career. In an interview Kerber clarified that, despite strong Polish connection, she considers herself German: "I am German. I play for Germany, I grew up in Germany, and my heart beats for Germany."
