Kerber defends Stuttgart title

Australian Open champion Angelique Kerber picked up her second title of 2016 with a 6-4, 6-0 victory over qualifier Laura Siegemund in Sunday’s final of the WTA clay-court tournament in Stuttgart.

In an all-German final, Kerber claimed her first win since her Melbourne triumph in January with an impressive display against Siegemund, who had beaten seeds Simona Halep, Roberta Vinci and Agnieszka Radwanska, all ranked in the world’s top ten. This was Siegemund’s debut in a WTA final and Kerber’s first since the Australian Open as she defended her Stuttgart title.
