Tennis professional Angelique Kerber is working hard on her comeback after her baby break and is already thinking about the Olympic Games in Paris.
When asked whether she could imagine a double with Olympic champion Alexander Zverev next summer, the 35-year-old replied in an interview with "Sport Bild": "Very much! When we meet in Australia, we will definitely talk about it. I would be happy about that! The Olympics in Paris are the highlight, and playing for Germany is always an honor anyway."
Like Zverev, Kerber is also interested in being the flag bearer at the opening ceremony. "It would be indescribable for any athlete to run in with the German flag. Everyone would feel proud. And so it is also a dream of mine," she said.
The former number one in the tennis world rankings wants to make her comeback at the end of the month after the birth of her daughter Liana and an 18-month break and compete at the United Cup in Sydney. However, she cannot yet estimate how fit she will be when she returns. "I've done everything, I feel good, we're right on schedule. But it's too early to make a prediction," said Kerber.
