Angelique Kerber receives a wildcard into the BGL Luxembourg Open

Don Han | Angelique Kerber will make her first appearance at the BGL Luxembourg Open since 2011 as she has officially received a wildcard into the International tournament as her last tournament of the year unless she decides to participate in the WTA Elite Trophy. The German will be the top seed in the tournament, and she will start her campaign against Monica Puig. Previous appearances in Luxembourg Kerber made her first appearance in Luxembourg all the way back in 2007 when she lost in the first round of qualifying to Klara Koukalova as the 75th-ranked player in the world. The next time she returned was in 2010 when she stormed to the semifinals defeating Daniela Hantuchova along the way. After her shocking run to the US Open semifinals in 2011, Kerber rose into the world’s top 30 and received a wildcard into this tournament to end off her season. However, she unexpectedly crashed out in the opening round to qualifier Bibiane Schoofs. That was Kerber’s last appearance in Luxembourg. This year, she will return as the top seed, former world number one and two-time Grand Slam champion.
