Welcome to the Top 20 Angelique Kerber!

We have another German girl hitting the Top 20 next week after 3 did it last year! (Petkovic, Goerges & Lisicki)

Angelique Kerber would be ranked world #20 for the first time in her career when the new ranking is released after Doha. Congratulation!

4 Germans in the Top 20 next week! (#10 Petkovic, #13 Lisicki, #19 Goerges & #20 Kerber)

Just wait for Mona Barthel to follow now? She is currently inside the Top 10 for the Race to Istanbul.



• Maria Sharapova • Dominika Cibulkova • Eugenie Bouchard • Garbine Muguruza •
• Andy Roddick • Mikhail Youzhny • Grigor Dimitrov • Novak Djokovic •

Top 20 Début for Angelique Kerber (GER)

Angelique Kerber, who earned 2,230 of her 2,465 ranking points since 220K Dallas 2011, will become fourth German in Top 20 (# 10 Andrea Petkovic, # 13 - a new career high – Sabine Lisicki & # 19 Julia Görges) next Monday.

The Runner Up of P5 Dubai 2011, Svetlana Kuznetsova (RUS) who lost in R3 in P5 Doha against Lucie Šafářová in straight sets, will drop out of Top 20 (# 27).

Care Bear!

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

Re: Welcome to the Top 20 Angelique Kerber!

Can she be the next Kvitova? Everyone will say no, but who knows, her game works well in the US, and she might even be top 10 by the time she gets there. Anyway, she's 24 and it's about time she broke out. I'm so happy for her.
