Angelique Kerber On Why Coco Gauff’s Us Open Victory Surprised Her A Bit

Angelique Kerber had high praise for Coco Gauff, calling her "particularly impressed" and a great tennis player.

Kerber was initially surprised by the 19-year-old's US Open victory but later realized it was well-deserved.

A former world No. 1, Kerber took a break from tennis in 2022 to focus on her pregnancy and became a mother earlier this year.

Despite missing the entire 2023 tennis season, Kerber kept herself updated on the women's tennis scene.

During the North American Hard Court Swing, Gauff secured her first WTA 1000 title in Cincinnati and then won a Grand Slam at the US Open.

Kerber mentioned being impressed not only by Gauff but also by other talented players like Aryna Sabalenka and Iga Swiatek.

She acknowledged Gauff's consistent performance in various tournaments over the years.

Kerber is preparing for her tennis comeback in the 2024 season and has reunited with her former coach, Torben Beltz.

She believes that having a trusted team is crucial for her preparation and successful return.

Kerber stressed the importance of understanding and support from people who can help her face new challenges, not just in practice but in her daily routine as well.
