Catching Up with Old Friends

Angelique Kerber (Curtain Call, Australian Open Day 5)
- Kerber made it to the third round, equaling her performance in Melbourne. She also managed to take out a seed in the second round: Shahar Peer (13th, Israel). She lost in straight sets today to Jarmila Groth (Australia). Only 22, Kerber's career is definitely headed in the right direction.
