WTA Stuttgart: Angelique Kerber fails in the second round to Elina Svitolina

by archysport

This means that Kerber, who triumphed in Stuttgart in 2015 and 2016, has been denied her third win at the clay court tournament in Swabia for the time being.

Anna-Lena Friedsam also missed the quarter-finals on Thursday and thus her first entry into the round of eight on the WTA tour since March 2020.

Kerber started her clay court season in Stuttgart, and she also wanted to forget her disappointing start to the season. At the start, the Kiel woman had easily beaten Georgian Jekaterine Gorgodse 6: 2, 6: 2, and she also showed decent tennis against Switolina at the beginning.

The opponents played at a high level from the start. The balanced first set went almost logically into the tiebreak, in which the Ukrainian had stronger nerves and prevailed 7: 4.

Kerber: Sixth defeat in the eleventh match

The point balance showed how close the duel was. Svitolina made only two points (47:45) more than the three-time Grand Slam tournament winner from Germany in the first set.

In the second set, Switolina took the serve from the 33-year-old with a score of 2: 1 and then successfully defended the lead. After 1:35 hours, the Ukainer turned her first match ball.

For Kerber it was the sixth defeat in the eleventh match of the season.
