Angelique Kerber, 34, has confirmed that she plans to return after pregnancy and revealed her goal is to compete at the 2024 Paris Olympics. In August, Kerber announced she was pregnant. Kerber, who is turning 35 in January, is planning to return to tennis at some point during the 2023 season.
‟Definitely not. I’ll try to get fit again and return to the tour, but without rushing things. And then I’ll be wanting to go all out. If I do something, then I do it properly," Kerber told the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix website.
Kerber wants to play at the 2024 Paris Olympics
Kerber made her Olympic debut at the 2012 London Olympics when she reached the quarterfinal. In 2016, Kerber won the silver medal for Germany at the Rio Olympics. Now, Kerber wants to represent Germany for one final time at the Olympics.
‟One aim is the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. I’d really like to play there. I took part in the Games in London and Rio de Janeiro and it’s something special playing for one’s country at such a momentous event.
I’d love to have the feeling once again. There’s quite a bit of time until then so I’m not under any pressure," Kerber revealed. Going forward, Kerber is working on some projects and definitely has some plans for the future.
‟There are various projects that are important for me. One is my autobiography that is set to be published in November. I’ve invested a lot of time in it and have thought a lot about what I want to let the people in on, which messages I want to give young players starting out in the game.
It was a very intensive and very emotional preoccupying myself with my life and my career. I hope I can give many people some pleasure with it," Kerber explained.
