Angelique Kerber is the new queen of #wimbledon. On Saturday, she beat the American Serena Williams 6-3, 6-3 in the final to win the world’s most prestigious #tennis tournament and celebrate the biggest success of her career. After the Australian Open and the US Open, it is the #Porsche Brand Ambassador’s third Grand Slam win. In her first appearance in the #wimbledon final two years ago in 2016, she succumbed to Serena Williams. This time around however, she secured the most coveted trophy in women’s #tennis – the first German to do so since Steffi Graf in 1996.

“We along with every #tennis fan are overjoyed by Angelique Kerber’s magnificent win. Our brand ambassador has fulfilled her sporting dream,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of #Porsche AG. “Nobody deserves the win more that her. The way in which she has fought her way back to the top after a very difficult season in 2017 when she suffered many setbacks and defeats has earned our greatest respect. By triumphing in #wimbledon, she has crowned an unbelievable comeback. The achievement is a spur not only for the talented juniors we support together with the German #tennis Association within the #Porsche Talent Team Germany. Her strong will and unbelievable belief in herself make #angeliquekerber a role model for young #people in not only #sport.”

Her triumph at the #tennis Mecca on the Church Road in London means that #angeliquekerber, the 2015 and 2016 winner of the #Porsche #tennis Grand Prix, will rise up the world rankings to No. 4.
