Having made her professional debut in 2003, Kerber rose to prominence upon reaching the semifinals of the 2011 US Open, at which time she was ranked no. 92 in the world. In 2016, Kerber won both hard court Grand Slams of the year, the Australian and US Open, and reached the finals at Wimbledon, consolidating herself as the number one ranking for the first time in her career in September of that year. She became the twenty-second oldest player to achieve the number one ranking for the first time. At the 2016 Summer Olympics, Kerber also won an Olympic silver medal while representing Germany.
A left-hander known for her aggressive counter-punching all-court game, Kerber has won 11 singles titles, most notably her two major titles—the first at the 2016 Australian Open, and the second eight months later at the 2016 US Open. She has won at least one title on every surface on the WTA Tour, achieving this feat in 2015 by winning Charleston (green clay), Stuttgart (red clay), Birmingham (grass) and Stanford (hard).
