Angelique Kerber: ´Olympics? Grand Slams are the most important things´

Angelique Kerber thinks that the Olympic Games are not as important as the Grand Slams. The world no. 2, who's playing in both singles and doubles, partnering Andrea Petkkvic, at the Rio Games, spoke about this in the press conference after her semi-final defeat to Simona Halep, in Montreal.
'I think, of course, for the tennis player, the Grand Slams are I think the most important things.

Of course you are looking forward, like me, to playing the Olympics because it's only four years. It's an honor to play for Germany. Of course, I will give everything to win the medal, doesn't matter which one. But yeah, I mean, a Grand Slam title is still a Grand Slam title.

It's tough to compare because it's a little bit different, but I'm happy that I already have one,' mentioned the current Australian Open champion. Kerber is aiming to win a medal in Rio and speaking about her goal at the Olympics, went on to add, 'My priority is really going there and winning a medal because that's my second Olympics.

I had the feeling already in London. Of course, it's always special. It's a new location, new country and everything. But, of course, I'm going there to really trying to focusing on every match and being actually ready for the week, to playing my best tennis there.'
