For almost three years Angelique Kerber has been trying to get results without him, but now the German will come back to collaborate with her former coach Torben Beltz. "The new coach is an old acquaintance," says the 3 Slams winner in a press release.
With Beltz, Kerber won the Australian Open and the US Open, as well as a silver medal at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. Furthermore, in September of the same year she was the number one in the world for the first time. Beltz played an important role in the transformation of Kerber.
He said about German. "I've never seen him in a bad mood. Angie is a nice girl. She wants to work hard and always win." Kerber and Beltz have understood each other blindly since the former coach of the Schleswig-Holstein association accompanied the then 16-year-old on the WTA Tour in 2004.
He said: "She was an exceptional talent, I was impressed by her game even then." The two could start their collaboration starting from Roland Garros, scheduled from September 27 to October 11: it is the only Slam that is still missing from the Angelique Kerber collection.
By winning Paris you would win the Career Garnd Slam.

' 'The U.S. [women] have the best players in the world. ' 'How are we need celebrating these players every day at home, and not just every four years at the World Cup?' I started looking into it, and found like-minded people, and we're so, so excited to have this team in LA ... and to have you spreading your energy across sports for women. "
