Angelique Kerber: "I've proven that I'm a great player." Do you agree with her?

"I've beaten almost all the great players this year, but I think I've proven that I'm a great player myself," said Kerber.

As of now, do you agree or disagree with her?

Re: Do you consider Angelique Kerber as a great player as of now?

I am impressed with her play in Paris. And her subsequent success proves that she IS a great player (but of course she still has a lot to improve)

She is a great player. She is a machine and she has beaten all the top players other than Azarenka

She's a good player, we can leave "great" for when she wins a couple of big tournaments.

She's right. She's playing extremely smart tennis right now. And she's one of the best competitors/fighters on the tour other than Serena and Maria.

She's had solid top ten results but she could disappear next week and no one would notice.
Flying under the radar as Goerges and Lisicki have more hype yet show rather poor results.

I can see her being a top ten player for another year or two but she doesn't have that X factor to be a real force to be reckon with for years to come.

The day she lose a step, she's toast.

Absolutely she's a great player. I would say that is a no-brainer.

She is a good player, but gurl win a couple of biggies first to claim greatness.

That hype's a TF problem. Angie is significantly better than Lisicki and light years ahead of Gorges. No comparison really.

I think she is a good player as of now, not a great player yet as she hasn't won any big tournaments. But she might change it pretty soon I think

She´s a very, very good player but she needs to win a few big titles to be considered a great player.

In my view, if she substantially improves her serve, she may very well challenge or even beat the likes of Azarenka on a regular basis in coming years.

Cetkovská ~ Hradecká ~ Siniaková ~ Gavrilova ~ Bencic ~ Allertova ~ Smitkova ~ Makarova ~ Chakvetadze ~ Laura Robson ~ Pliskova twins

I think she has proven to be a good, consistent player, but I wouldn't use the word "great" quite yet.
