Angie Kerber - World's No 1.
April 6, 2017: “I think it wasn’t so much what I was doing then, it was more what I wasn’t doing. I think I’ve got better now with my habits. I think I’ve gotten a bit stronger now with my identity on court and what I bring to the court. With time I became stronger in just my game style and what I wanted to first bring to the court and then I got clearer on following through with game plans, just being a bit mentally stronger to be able to stay focused for a longer period of time. It’s not easy to stay focused and keep on one train of thought for an hour and a half, two, three, however long it takes. A big part of that was maturity on my behalf.”
— Johanna Konta, on how she been able to transform from journeywoman, ranked No. 144 in March 2015 to an elite star ranked No. 7, after defeating Caroline Wozniacki 6-4, 6-3, to win the Miami Open, the most notable success by a British female since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in 1977.
