Angelique Kerber Hires Rainer Schuettler as New Coach

Angelique Kerber has hired former Top-5 ATP star Ranier Schuettler to be her next coach.

The German recently parted ways with Wim Fissette after a successful season that saw her win her third major title at Wimbledon and finish ranked No.2 in the world.

“I am really looking forward to the opportunity of working with Angelique during this phase of her career," Schuettler said in a statement, according to WTA Insider. "She has obviously shown what a great champion she is and I hope my experience can bring a fresh perspective to an already strong team.”

Schuettler, 42, will officially join Team Kerber when the World No.2 begins her pre-season training at the end of November. Kerber is set to start her 2019 campaign at WTA the Sydney International, which takes place from 7-12 January.

Schuettler won 337 matches and four titles during his ATP career. He reached at least the second week at all four majors and went all the way to the final at the 2003 Australian Open while also reaching the semis at Wimbledon in 2008.
