Tennis star Angelique Kerber is pregnant. This is confirmed by the management of the three-time Grand Slam winner t-online on request. The “Bild” newspaper had previously reported on it. Kerber will not compete at the US Open this year. The tournament starts on August 29th.

However, the pregnancy does not mean the end of a career for the 34-year-old. The former number one in the world is still eyeing the 2024 Olympic Games. But now the top German players are missing in the last Grand Slam tournament of the year for both men and women. The tournament comes too early for Alexander Zverev after his serious ankle injury.

Kerber confirms pregnancy on Instagram

For Kerber, the US Open cancellation bursts the dream of another Grand Slam tournament this year. Most recently, she won a rather insignificant title at the “WTA 250” in Strasbourg, that was on May 21, 2022. Kerber’s last major success so far was in 2018, when she triumphed at Wimbledon. Since then, the Bremen native has been fighting for a place in the top ten in the world. Your last sporting highlight should have been reaching the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2021.

But Kerber makes a satisfied impression, providing her around 680,000 fans on Instagram with snapshots from her free time, for example. Two weeks ago she wrote about a picture of herself in a sporty hiking outfit: “The best summer days are spent in nature.” Then on Wednesday the tennis star’s latest post.

“In the next few months I will be taking a break from traveling the world as a tennis player. But I think for the best possible reason,” she wrote alongside a picture of herself grinning from ear to ear. Kerber thus also confirms the pregnancy report via its social media account.

According to “Bild”, the father of the child should be called Franco Bianco and be a fitness entrepreneur from near Frankfurt am Main. When Kerber took part in the Australian Open in Melbourne at the beginning of the year, he cheered for the German tennis player from the stands.
