Kerber Conquers Wozniacki And Stuttgart....

Angelique Kerber battled back from the brink of defeat to beat Caroline Wozniacki, conquer the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and keep her clay court winning streak alive....


STUTTGART, Germany - It wasn't easy, but Angelique Kerber kept her perfect start to the clay court season alive Sunday, edging Caroline Wozniacki in a nail-biter to win the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.


Kerber and Wozniacki had played some phenomenal tennis to get to the final - they were responsible for taking out the Top 2 seeds en route to the final, Kerber taking out No.1 seed Maria Sharapova in the second round and Wozniacki outlasting No.2 seed Simona Halep in an almost-three hour semifinal.


 

And they brought out their best tennis again on Sunday, with Wozniacki drawing first blood by taking the 32-minute first set, 6-3, then Kerber retaliating with a runaway 25-minute second set, 6-1.


 

There was all kinds of drama in the third set, with Wozniacki jumping out to a 3-1 lead, then Kerber catching up to 3-all, then Wozniacki again leaning ahead 5-3, and coming within two points of victory at 30-15, but again Kerber digging out of it, breaking to get back on serve then holding for 5-all.


 

In the end Kerber's momentum was just too strong, and she managed to win the last four games of the match to close out the No.4-seeded Dane after two hours and four minutes, 3-6, 6-1, 7-5.


 

"It was small things today that made the difference," Wozniacki told the crowd. "I had 5-3 in the third set and 30-all, and it could have gone both ways, but she took her chances and it went her way.


 

"We're great friends, we hang out a lot and practice a lot together, and it's always nice to play a friend in a final. You obviously want to win, but if you don't win, it's still nice that your friend does."


 

"A few days ago I said clay is actually not my favorite surface, but right now I think I will change my mind," Kerber said. "I've played very well on clay the last few days and weeks. I feel good that I have had so many matches on clay, and now I'm looking forward to the next tournaments before Paris.


 

"Of course I'm a little bit tired - I've had a lot of matches the last few weeks, and also a lot of travel. So that's why I'm for sure taking the next few days off, just relaxing a little bit before I go to Madrid."


 

Kerber is now 11-0 since the tour switched to clay a few weeks ago, and this is her equal-biggest title too - she also won Premier titles at Paris [Indoors] in 2012 and Charleston two weeks ago.
