What a start to 2017 for Kerber.
Fended off Australian WC Barty in Brisbane only to get destroyed by Svitolina in the next round.
Now massacred in the hands of Kasatkina who was even willing to choke in the first set.
So many points to defend this year. It will get even tougher.
She’s rich, she’ll get over it.

How different it could have been..
Angie was down two match points to Lucie in R1.
Instead of being out with zero confidence going into AO, she now flying high.
Agree with the statement above,
Only Angelique can can destroy Kerber!
Could this be a turning point?
Confidence back, been no.1 had the pressure, couldn't handle being the hunted. Down to near zero, building momentum again as the hunter..
Will history repeat itself again, maybe, could be, who knows :)

In fairness to the ghastly Kerber, she's having a good 2018. Compared to 2017, she's having a miraculous 2018!

Yes but it seems like she's missing that one step to finishing off as a winner. Stomping Keys at AO and then lost on a clutch moment to Halep. Too good for Pliskova and then spraying errors against Svitolina. Outmatch Garcia and then just barely there against Kasatkina. It's frustrate me!

It doesn't frustrate me: I enjoy all her losses :)

She did well. Still don't like her but she has saved the WTA further embarrassment.
Congratulations .
Angelique was carrying the entire WTA Tour on her shoulders. Lose this match and the ATP will never support a mxd doubles match agin.

Further embarrassment than No1 player in 2016 falling to No21 at the end of 2017 with no injury and coming back in 2018 to win a slam?

OMG kerber was SALTY.

And if you have been following Kerber's career you know this is part of her -- the real her, that was in display a lot during lost matchpoints in the past, especially the period before she won the first of her 3 slams (and got a bit prim and proper like as if somebody told her to act like a champion or something haha).

Basically Kerber felt some kind of entitlement from the 18 year old.... who instead gave her one more can of whoop ass. Beautiful.

She's kinda irrelevant now.
Still, she does have the distinction of those majors, no.1 ranking.
Downside, possibly the worst performances of any player whilst at no.1.

She's lost at least one step, and that hurts her game (more than a lot of other players) as her technique is very dependent on body rotation and "arming" or muscling the ball.

I feel like she's getting destroyed for years now.
She is one of the most naturally gifted players in this generation, and has the talent and court sense to win majors again. When others (not meaning you) write her off, its usually for some BS they've concocted in their minds, having no bearing on reality.
