Kerber issues Australian Open warning with Sydney triumph

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Former world number one Angelique Kerber continued
her 2018 resurgence with a 6-4 6-4 win over Ashleigh Barty in the Sydney
International final on Saturday, giving herself a welcome boost ahead
of next week’s Australian Open.

The German two-time grand slam champion, currently ranked 22nd in the
world after a disappointing 2017 campaign, registered her ninth win in
as many matches this year with another clinical performance against the
local favorite.

It was the first individual final since Monterrey
in April last year for the 29-year-old left-hander, who won the
Australian and U.S. Open titles in 2016.

“Thanks to my team for believing in me and supporting me, we had an
excellent week. I am really looking forward to the rest of the year,”
Kerber said in a court-side interview after claiming a first title since
her U.S. Open triumph.

“I am playing amazing tennis again and I am just feeling great.”

After some tight early service games, Barty double-faulted to hand
Kerber the first break and a 3-2 lead, and the German served out the
opening set with little trouble.

The second set witnessed an
early exchange of breaks before Kerber broke the Australian to love to
move 4-3 ahead and picked up her 11th career title when Barty found the
net after yet another powerful Kerber forehand.
