Angelique Kerber did not surpass the third round in her first 15 Grand Slam tournament appearances, but found her form in New York powering past seeds Agnieszka Radwanska and Flavia Pennetta to reach the 2011 U.S. Open semifinals. That result — as well as semifinal appearances in Dallas and Osaka — helped Kerber crack the Top 30 for the first time. Kerber won her first WTA title at the Paris Indoors in February 2012, and followed that up by dethroning two-time defending champion Caroline Wozniacki, 6-4, 6-4, in the Copenhagen final to raise her ranking to No. 14. At the 2012 Wimbledon, Kerber fought off fellow German Sabine Lisicki to reach her second career Grand Slam semifinal. The top-seeded Kerber beat No.3-seeded Ana Ivanovic, 6-4, 7-6 (6), to win her third career title in Linz in October, 2013. The Bremen-born Kerber is a left-handed baseliner who is fluent in German, Polish and English.
