Is it over for Kerber? Today's performance was shameful, she looked like she didn't even care. Kontaveit would hit a DTL shot and Kerber would instantly just turn away for the next point; not even attempting to go for it. She's almost 32 years old now and has an extremely taxing game on the body, can you really see her doing much else from now on? Or will she retire by the end of the year, or perhaps after the Olympics in 2020?

Discuss :)

She definitely did not seem motivated nor was enjoying herself out there.

Winning 3 grand slams might have fulfilled all her expectations; she just hasn't realized it or isn't admitting it to herself? Luckily for her, she is injury free!

If this is to be it, well she had a great run, one that could have been even better with her qualities, had she fixed her game and improved her fitness earlier in her career. Also the whole Tier 1 thing, still hope she'll cross it off soon, but not going to lie, I'm losing hope with each one that passes her by. At this point she has maybe 20-30 shots at it, and that's if she stays healthy. This year will be best forgotten, so maybe 2020 will be better, if not... oh well, it was a good run and she'll always have 2016. 99% of players dream their whole life and most put in just as much work never to get anywhere close to what she has achieved.

Kerber has at the very best a 2 year window to win another slam if not she will never win another.
Winning another Slam, ok, but she should really try her best to win a P5/PM because finishing her career without one after like a hundred tries is a big stain on her resume.
Doubt it. Only avid fans care about that.

Live look at Angie & Maria reminiscing about their titanic 2014 Wimbledon match:

LMAO

I'm crying. I love you Angie. I know you'll be back :)

What have you done, now it's all but confirmed that she wins another slam :lol:

Can you open one for Simona too please, since your predictions are eventually proven to be so comically wrong.

even when she was winning , she never seemed to be enjoying herself on court.

maybe inwardly she was, but on the outside, mostly she never did.

but she won 3 more slams than many people thought she would.

So, she lost the first set in the tie-break, 9-7, and then flopped the second one, in a tournament no one care about, because everybody are saving strenght for US Open and this is a sign she's fall comet?

Then Serena is a faster falling comet, since she didn't bothered to even compete...

This is the magical power of the reverse jinxing.

Nobody actually cares about that :lol:
