Angelique Gerber has won a tennis tournament for the first time in three years. Two days before the start of Wimbledon, the best German tennis player won the final against Bed Homberg 6: 3, 6: 2 against Seth Katarina Siniakova. For Gerber, it was his 13th match victory after months of disappointment. He had previously won a title at Wimbledon last in 2018.
“It couldn’t have gone better,” Gerber told ARD. “I felt so good. Finally I’m glad I won another match. I will definitely travel to Wimbledon with confidence.”
Supported by 600 spectators, Gerber battled two-time Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova in a final match that did not match the quality of her semi-final. However, after two games with a total of six sets, Gerber again presented himself overall overall, with often weak service. Basically he was mostly the best and consistent player against doubles expert Siniakova.
After winning the first set, the finalist took a straight lead in the second division, but had to accept a 2-2 lead again. World Ranking-76. Siniakova was unable to use the weak point from Gerber. The Czech, who won the French Open in the doubles with Barbora Grijokova, who surprised the tournament, simply made a number of mistakes. Gerber overcame opposition as the game was 4: 2.
Gerber did not play in the final for two years. Most recently, the left-hander was also in the final before Wimbledon in 2019. So, following this success, Gerber talked about a “very special success”.
“This has not been an easy time in the last few years, especially in the last few months,” Gerber said, adding that he has not crossed the first round of the Grand Slam tournament so far this year. Accordingly, the 2018 winner for Wimbledon piled deep: W I think there are other great favorites at Wimbledon. For me, Wimbledon day by day, every round is a win. I will try to take with me what I have achieved here and how I have played. “
Your first round opponent at Wimbledon is World No. 86. Nina Stojanovic from Serbia. In the third round, a meeting with American superstar Serena Williams is possible.
