Angelique Kerber won her first title after Wimbledon in 2018, defeating Katerina Sinyakova 6-3, 6-2 in the final of the Bad Homburg Open on Saturday.
Returning to the final for the first time in two years and playing in front of a home crowd, the three-time Grand Slam champion interrupted Sinyakova’s serve six times on her way to her 13th WTA singles title in her career.
“It’s really special to win another title here,” said the German, who also upset Petra Kvitova in the semifinals. “It’s a great feeling and thank you all.”
Kerber added the title of Bad Homburg to his other two home victories in Stuttgart in 2015 and 2016.
Kerber is ranked 25th at Wimbledon and will play Serbia’s Nina Stojanovic in the first round next week.
The former top doubles player Siniakova from the Czech Republic fell to a career record 2-4 in the singles finals.
