Angelique Kerber Form


Angelique Kerber has won 17 of her last 19 matches. Her only defeats in that run have come against World No.1 Ashleigh Barty.

The 33-year-old did very well on grass, winning the title in Bad Homburg before a run to the semi-finals at Wimbledon. 

The former World No.1 switched to hard courts in Cincinnati. She beat Maria Sakkari, Elina Svitolina, Jelena Ostapenko and Petra Kvitova before going down to Barty in the semi-finals.

Kerber has beaten some tricky opponents at the US Open. The German beat Dayana Yastremska 3-6 6-4 7-6, Anhelina Kalinina 6-3 6-2 and Sloane Stephens 5-7 6-2 6-3.

Leylah Fernandez Form


Leylah Fernandez is one of the rising stars in women’s tennis. She has been in the Top 100 for a year but can't break into the Top 50 as of yet.

The Canadian won in Monterrey in March but struggled for consistency since, failing to win three consecutive matches until the US Open.

The 18-year-old beat Ana Konjuh 7-6 6-2 in the first round followed by a 7-5 7-5 win against Kaia Kanepi. Fernandez capitalised on a meltdown from Naomi Osaka to win 5-7 7-6 6-4 in the third round.
