Angelique Kerber stays on course in her favorite Grand Slam.
The 2018 Wimbledon winner also won her second match at the All England Club without dropping a set and after 6: 3, 6: 3 over Magda Linette from Poland followed Jule Niemeier and Tatjana Maria in the round of the best 32 players.
There, Kerber meets Elise Mertens (Belgium/No. 24) or Panna Udvardy (Hungary). The girl from Kiel, who reached the semi-finals last year, is also the favorite in this match.
Against Linette, Kerber built on their sovereign opening win. Unlike the first duel with the 30-year-old, on the way to her only title of the season so far on clay in Strasbourg, Kerber didn’t have to go into the third set this time.
