Angelique Kerber Explains Why Coco Gauff's Us Open Win 'surprised Her A Little'

Angelique Kerber praised young tennis sensation Coco Gauff for her impressive performances in women's tennis.

Despite following the sport during her break from tennis to have a baby in 2022, Kerber expressed her surprise at Gauff's US Open win.

Gauff, at the age of 19, won her first Grand Slam title at the US Open and secured her first WTA 1000 title in Cincinnati during the North American hard court swing.

Kerber, a former world No. 1, acknowledged Gauff's consistent excellence in tournaments and her remarkable achievements.

Kerber, who gave birth earlier this year and missed the entire 2023 season, plans to return to tennis at the start of the 2024 season.

She has reunited with her former coach, Torben Beltz, with whom she achieved significant success.

Kerber believes that having a trusted team by her side provides a sense of security and peace of mind, especially during the extensive preparation needed for her return.

The experienced coach Beltz is expected to play a crucial role in Kerber's successful comeback to the sport.

Kerber emphasized the importance of having people who understand the new challenges she faces, as returning to professional tennis involves adjustments beyond just practice.

With her comeback on the horizon, Kerber is focused on the support and understanding of her trusted team as she prepares for the upcoming tennis season.
