German Angelique Kerber won the 600-th victory of his career, beating Estonian Anett Kontaveit in the second round of the tournament in Doha.
She became the seventh acting tennis player who overcame this line. Previously, Caroline Wozniacki (613), Svetlana Kuznetsova (642), Maria Sharapova (643), Jelena Jankovic (644), Venus Williams (796) and Serena Williams (805) succeeded.
“Kontaveit and I met on the ground twice, but in this case everyone was the only one.”
In the second game I had nothing bad. I almost won, but she did not stop fighting. It’s great that I managed to finish the match in two games.
As for meeting with Strycova, I know. I need to show my best tennis. Barbora feels good in Doha, we trained together several times. The match will be difficult, because the weather conditions change very quickly, but I’m waiting for him, “the WTA press service quotes Kerber as saying.
