All Hail The New Queen! With the release of the new WTA rankings following the 2016 US Open, Angelique Kerber is officially the new world #1 in single. She also takes over the top spot on the money list as well. It’s been an unpredictable year in women’s tennis. Back in January, I could never have envisioned Victoria Azarenka out of the game, expecting her first child, Maria Sharapova on suspension for  a substance I had never heard of before but apparently is all the rage in certain countries or Serena losing her #1 ranking to Angelique Kerber. But all of that has happened. And there is still a fall season leading into the Tour Championships still to be played. Who knows what else is in store? I can’t wait to see.

  1. I looked back at your blog in 2012 where Li Na had defeated Kerber in Cincinnati and the transformation in Angie’s physique from then to now is amazing. She is much more toned now and doesn’t have the baby face she had back then. Earlier this year she had worked with Li’s ex physio Alex Stober and I believe he got her on the right track training-wise. She just worked with him for a short time as he is now full time physio for Austrian Dominic Thiem. Also she is much stronger mentally now, as I remember watching that match in Cincinnati 4 years ago and Kerber went off the rails mentally in that third set where Li blew her away.

    • It’s funny. Angelique checks off all the boxes that normally I like in players…but while I like her, I’m not head over heels about her…maybe I’m still sore about that match against Madison Keys in Charleston a few years ago! LOL!
