Angelique Kerber reaches the quarter-finals in Bad Homburg and thus underlines her top form

Kerber got two breaks in the first set to make it 3: 1 and 6: 2, but the woman from Kiel did not allow a break chance with her own service.

“I felt comfortable from the first point,” she said later: “I really enjoyed the support of the fans and felt at home. That’s why I’m playing such good tennis at the moment.”

In the second round as well, Kerber, who had been seeded three in Bad Homburg, scored a break to make it 3-1. When she then fended off four break chances from her opponent at 4: 2, her resistance was broken. After 68 minutes, the 34-year-old converted her second match point.
