Angelique Kerber To Hire New Coach For Rest of 2019

Angelique Kerber has not been having the best of seasons in 2019. The German veteran had attached her wagon to countryman Rainer Schuttler earlier this year. However after failing to defend her title at the Wimbledon Championships earlier this year, she parted ways with him.

Kerber was knocked out of the Wimbledon Championships 2019 in the second round by a lucky loser Lauren Davis. This prompted her to come into the US Open without any coach, which showed its effects as Kerber was knocked out in the very first round, by doubles specialist Kiki Mladenovic.

Angelique Kerber is all set to start her Asian Swing at the Zhengzhou Open, after she accepted a wild card into the event. However, this time around she will not be alone. Reports have suggested that she will be seen with a person named Dirk Dier. Dirk Dier has been with the German tennis federation and is also known to have a good relationship with with Angelique Kerber.

It will be interesting to see how well the both get along, and more importantly how long will they stick together. It looks as though Dier has been hired to partner her for the rest of the 2019 season, which will include the Asian Swing and the WTA Finals as well.

Kerber has had a win loss record of 25-14 in 2019 and for a player who had started the year as the world number 2, the numbers do not look good. Angelique Kerber has now slid to number 17 on the WTA singles rankings, and looks most likely to miss out on the WTA finals.
