Kerber says goodbye to Roma tournament in first round

The German tennis player, former world number 1, was overtaken by the Czech Katerina Siniakova, who will now be cited in the second round against Daria Kasatkina or Vera Zvonareva.

The German Angelique Kerber, former world number 1 and winner of three Grand Slam titles in her career, fell on Tuesday 6-3 and 6-1 against the Czech Katerina Siniakova, number 61 in the ranking, in the first round of the Rome tournament .

On a deserted Pietrangeli court in the Roman Italic Forum, as the tournament is played without an audience due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kerber said goodbye to the tournament in just seventy minutes against Siniakova with a lackluster performance.

Kerber, 32, a career winner of the 2016 Australian Open and US Open and 2018 Wimbledon, had no options against Siniakova, a player she had always won against in the previous three matches.

With the defeat of Kerber, the Roman tournament runs out of German players, since Julia Goerges was also defeated in the first round by Montenegrin Danka Kovinic.

After the elimination in the first round of the United States Open suffered against the Estonian Kaia Kanepi, Siniakova stood in the second round in Rome, in which she will face the winner of the Russian duel between Daria Kasatkina and Vera Zvonareva, who agreed to the main frame with an invitation letter

Results of the day.
