The resurgent German, who broke a tournament title drought with victory at the Sydney International in the leadup, is now riding a seven-match winning streak as she looks to recapture the form that propelled her to the title at Melbourne Park. Kerber was uncomfortable in her skin as the top seed during last year’s tournament, when she lost in the fourth round to American CoCo Vandeweghe, but ranked 21st this year, she looms as a dangerous floater in the draw.
In scorching conditions at Margaret Court Arena, she gave 52nd-ranked Vekic the run-around with a series of deft drop-shots and closed out the one-sided match with a confident cross-court smash. Born in the same year of the Australian Open’s debut at Melbourne Park, Kerber soaked up a birthday serenade from the terraces during her post-match interview on the court. She is now guided by prominent Belgian coach Wim Fissette, who split with Romanian top seed Simona Halep at the end of the season.
Elite tennis is a small world in many ways, and Beltz was in Vekic’s players’ box at Margaret Court Arena, having linked up with the Croatian during the off-season.

Asked if he felt free of the Federer comparisons at last, Dimitrov said:

Read more about sharing. Five years ago, a well-known tennis coach made a comparison that was to weigh heavily on the shoulders of his star pupil. Peter Lundgren, the Swede who guided Roger Federer to the top of the sport, described an year-old Grigor Dimitrov as better than the Swiss had been at that age. If the hyperbole was justified by Dimitrov’s victories at the junior US Open and Wimbledon in , not to mention his silky one-handed backhand, the tag of “Baby Federer” is one that he has found difficult to live up to.
Now 23, it took the Bulgarian four years to break into the world’s top 50 and another 12 months to reach the top Media playback is not supported on this device Watch the best of the action as Murray loses at Wimbledon Since the turn of the year, however, under new coach Roger Rasheed, Dimitrov’s progress has been remarkable.
