Bad Homburg Open 2021 Final: Angelique Kerber defeats Siniakova in straight sets ahead of Wimbledon – Germany’s Angelique Kerber has defeated Czech Katerina Siniakova in the final of Bad Homburg Open. She won the match 6-3, 6-2 in a one-sided contest. The win will boost Kerber going into Wimbledon.

“It means a lot to me today. This is my surface, I felt very comfortable on grass and I’m just happy to have finally won a tournament again,” said Kerber as quoted by AFP.

After losing two finals in 2019, this is Kerber’s first tournament win since beating Serena Williams to win Wimbledon, when she claimed her third Grand Slam title.

This was Kerber’s third grass-court title, alongside Wimbledon in 2018 and the WTA Birmingham tournament in 2015, and the 13th tournament win of her career.

“To be able to do all this in front of my friends and family is even nicer,” she added.

The World No.25 will next take on Nina Stojanovic in the opening round of the Wimbledon after the grass-court crown.
