Angelique Kerber - First Player in History to...

First player in history to defeat Venus on all three surfaces in one calendar year.

First player in history not with the name Serena. Just popped into my head, quite a feat.

In this last match Kerber defeated no one. Venus did all the job and she did it spectacularly

Re: Angelique Kerber - First Player in History to...

I know the USO match was a mess, but the Olympics match was really high quality disrespectful to both players to just dismiss this as "Venus Sjogren's", Venus has beaten multiple top 10 players this year. Kerber deserves some credit for beating her 3 times in a row even if Venus is not the same player as before, she is still very good and a competitor...

It's not that amazing. Do you know how many people beat KDK in all surfaces in a calendar year? Because I don't.

Ten years back, Venus would defeat this particular toy with no excuses.

Re: Angelique Kerber - First Player in History to...

I am disgusted at what I am reading here. To be honest I have never been Venus' biggest fan but she deserves much respect for her career achievements & therefore Kerber deserves respect for beating Venus on all surfaces within one year.

Venus might be old for a tennis player & she might have been having injuries & health problems lately but this happens to everyone. Every great player will at some point reach the autumn of their career & then their form & results won't be the same as before. This is just common sense!

Really makes you think this forum is flooded with braindead people who can't even count to three...

Has anybody beaten Williams sisters 4 times or more in one year?

Exactly.

That's all that the people here are saying. Sure it sounds great to throw this accomplishment around, but to put it in perspective, Venus is in the "autumn" of her career so it's hard to get so excited about what Kerber has been able to do.
