Angelique Kerber earned WTA’s Player of the Year, lifting two Grand Slams and becoming the oldest woman to achieve the WTA World No.1 ranking. Earlier this month the German notched another significant achievement when she earned the 2016 WTA Year-End World No.1 Singles Ranking, presented by Dubai Duty Free.
On Tuesday in Singapore, shortly after overcoming Simona Halep to register her 61st win of 2016, Kerber received the 2016 WTA Year-End No.1 Award presented by Dubai Duty Free.
“For me it’s a honor to be the next No.1 after Steffi Graf,” Kerber said. “A lot of things change and now I think tennis in Germany is coming back again and to be No.1 at the end of the year is great. It was an incredible year with a lot of emotions.”
