ASAP Sports Transcripts - Tennis - 2016 - ROGERS CUP - July 27 - Angelique Kerber

Quote:
A. KERBER/M. Lucic-Baroni

6-3, 4-6, 6-3

An interview with:

ANGELIQUE KERBER

THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. It was your first match since Bastad. How are you physically right now?
ANGELIQUE KERBER: I have to say it was good. I had a lot of treatments yesterday and also the days before. It was good. I was still feeling it a little bit, but much better. I think in the next few days it will be gone, I hope.

Q. How would you rate your performance today?
ANGELIQUE KERBER: I think it was a tough match because she is really hitting the balls. I mean, I start really well. Then in the second set I lost my rhythm a little bit. But then I was trying to focusing on my own game and just going for it in the last few games, just being focusing. Just, yeah, win the match.

That was not so easy because, yeah, she was serving well. I was really happy that I break her, I don't know, in the last game, the game before.

Q. What was the game plan? Your coach came after the second set. What did you change or do?
ANGELIQUE KERBER: I was trying in the third set to going for it, not just hoping that she will make a mistake. I was trying to waiting for my chance and then play my own game. I think that was also the key.

I was serving really well in the third set. This was what I was focusing, as well, on my service games.

Q. How did you find the speed of the court? Is it pretty fast?
ANGELIQUE KERBER: Actually it's really fast. I mean, I was practicing this morning half an hour on the court. It's really fast. Especially when you're playing against an opponent which is like playing like her, really fast and strong.

So, yeah, it was not so easy because it was my first match on hard court after long time. Yeah, and then also after Bastad, where I was withdrawing, I was not sure how my elbow will feel. But it was okay.

Q. It's the best year of your career. Do you feel the pressure to perform at every tournament?
ANGELIQUE KERBER: Actually, I was feeling the pressure after Australia, yes. But right now it's not like at the beginning of the year. I'm trying to not thinking about pressure, just going out there, playing my matches, enjoying my tennis, just focusing on every single match, yeah, not thinking to have to win every tournament. That's actually not possible. Nobody can do this. I'm feeling a little bit less pressure than at the beginning of the year.

Q. Do you have any thoughts on your next match?
ANGELIQUE KERBER: She's a tough opponent. I played against her in the past a lot of times. I have to play my game, being aggressive, yeah, moving good against her. But I think it will be completely different match than today. So I'm really looking forward to that match.

Olympics not in danger! Her arm feels better every day. She receives a lot of treatment She is looking forward to Rio and badly wants a medal.

WTA-Tour Angelique Kerber ? ?Olympia-Start ist nicht in Gefahr? - de.tennisnet.com

Angelique Kerber – „Olympia-Start ist nicht in Gefahr“

Deutschlands Nummer eins gibt für die Olympischen Spiele in Rio de Janeiro und auch für den Rogers Cup in Montreal Entwarnung.

Australian-Open-Siegerin Angelique Kerber hat nach ihrer Ellbogenverletzung Entwarnung gegeben. „Mein Olympia-Start ist nicht in Gefahr. Meinem Arm geht es von Tag zu Tag besser, ich lasse mich intensiv behandeln“, sagte die Weltranglisten-Zweite dem Sport-Informations-Dienst (SID) und meinte: „Ich freue mich schon riesig auf Rio und möchte unbedingt eine Medaille holen. An Olympischen Spielen teilzunehmen, war immer schon ein Kindheitstraum von mir.“

Am vergangenen Donnerstag hatte die Wimbledon-Finalistin ihr Achtelfinal-Match beim WTA-Turnier in Bastad, Schweden, gegen Lara Arruabarrena (Spanien) wegen einer Ellbogenblessur absagen müssen. „Ich hatte schon im Spiel davor und beim Training Schmerzen und wollte einfach nichts riskieren“, sagte Kerber mit Blick auf die Sommerspiele am Zuckerhut (5. bis 21. August), bei denen sie in im neu gebauten Tenniszentrum in Barra da Tijuca zu den Goldfavoritinnen zählt.

Kerber startet auch in Montreal

Am Wochenende flog die 28-Jährige jedoch zunächst zum WTA-Premier-Turnier nach Montreal, Kanada (Rogers Cup). Bei der mit 2,71 Millionen US-Dollar dotierten Hartplatzveranstaltung ist Kerber hinter der 22-maligen Grand-Slam-Gewinnerin Serena Williams (USA) an Position zwei gesetzt und hat zum Auftakt ein Freilos. Die Kielerin kommt damit frühestens am Dienstag zum Einsatz: Dabei ist entweder Mirjana Lucic-Baroni (Kroatien) oder eine Qualifikantin Kerbers erste Gegnerin.

No, I missed that it said she drove from Germany. I just mapped the trip from her hometown.


(Hey, imagine if she had taken the ferry from Kiel to Oslo. That would have been quite a detour!)

Hello Everybody Angie Fans!

Does anybody have more information about Angie's adventurous car trip to Sweden?

Wrong way and wrong ferry!?


Nina.wennerstrom: She has finally arrived (SE). World number two @angie.kerber took the car from Germany to Bastad and drove the wrong way and grabbed the wrong ferry but she is finally here and we are so happy.

Re: Angie: Interviews, Tweets and Articles!

Article in Swedish on Angie in Båstad. Based on the rudimentary Google translation, it summarizes exactly what came to my mind when I found out Torben apparently drove her to Sweden (in *one* of her Porsches, nice way to squeeze in her sponsor ) from the tournament's video interview of her posted in the other thread. Just them, no huge entourage. Talk about low-key. She's the Aussie Open champion, just played in the Wimbledon final, and Bild calls her "tennis-queen Angie" (LOL), but is driving to a tournament with her coach as if she's a journeywoman playing challengers. I don't know why this is endearing, but it is. The article compares her arrival to Serena's, which is kind of unfair on both their parts, but certainly hammers home the point.
