Tennis player Angelique Kerber has changed coaches again. As the management of the 32-year-old announced, the three-time Grand Slam tournament winner will again work with her former coach Torben Beltz in the future. Beltz succeeds Dieter Kindlmann, whom Kerber only signed at the end of last year.
Under Beltz, Kerber won both the Australian Open and the US Open in 2016 and ended the year as number one in the world. When Kerber returns on the WTA tour is still unclear. Most recently, she had left participation in the US Open open, should it take place in New York from August 31.
At Kerber, the change of coach had last accumulated. After Beltz, she started working with Wim Fissette in late 2017. Under the direction of the top Belgian coach, Kerber won Wimbledon’s Grand Slam tournament in the summer of 2018 – only a few months later, there was a surprising split. Afterwards, ex-professional Rainer Schüttler took over the coaching job, but there were no major successes under him. In July 2019, shakers had to leave.
Kerber’s last tournament so far was the Australian Open in January, where she was eliminated in the round of 16. The worldwide tour has been interrupted due to the corona virus since mid-March. From August 3rd, it will be played again in Palermo.
