Kerber Refusing To Be Downbeat After Defeat

Angelique Kerber is confident of rediscovering her best form after crashing out of the US Open against teenager Naomi Osaka.

The 29-year-old German, the defending champion in New York, had no answer to her 19-year-old Japanese opponent’s power under the roof in Arthur Ashe Stadium as she lost 6-3 6-1 in the first-round tie.

Kerber not giving up after defeat


It means Kerber has not won a title since her second career Grand Slam win in the United States last September and has resulted in a fall down the world rankings from number one spot.

But Kerber is refusing to be downbeat and feels it is only a matter of time before things start going her way again on court.

She said: “I played not so well like last year and I had much less matches last year. I need just matches. I think this is the thing.

“Yeah, at the end she plays good. But I’m still the same player and the same person, so I think it’s just the matches and how I played last year from the beginning, and how I’m struggling this year.

“But I know that I will come back stronger, for sure. I know that I will not give up like this. I will try to forget the match as soon as possible and look forward again.”
