It will be the fourth time the pair are partnering coming three years after they last worked together.

The world No. 21 has played some of the most dynamic tennis of her career working with Beltz.

The partnership peaked in 2016 when Kerber toppled Serena Williams to win her maiden major at the Australian Open. She won the 2016 silver medal at the Rio Olympics, knocked off Karolina Pliskova to win the US Open and finished the season as year-end world No. 1.

This partnership goes all the way back to 2003 when Kerber made her first pro appearance in Berlin as a wild card.

During their second stint together from 2011 to 2013 Kerber make her first Grand Slam semifinal at the 2011 US Open.

The German lefthander was struggling a bit at the start of 2015 falling in the first round of the Australian Open when she hired Beltz for the third time before embarking on her tremendous 2016 campaign.

Beltz had been coaching Donna Vekic for the past two-hand-half years helping her rise from No. 52 to the Top 20. Vekic and Beltz split after disagreeing on her training and schedule post-Coronavirus.

The 32-year-old Kerber won Wimbledon in 2018 working with veteran coach Wim Fissette. Kerber has worked with a series of German coaches in recent years including former Australian Open finalist Rainer Schuettler,Dirk Dier and most recently Dieter Kindlmann.
