Angelique Kerber claimed her first win at a clay-court tournament of the 2024 season when competing at the WTA level 1000 tournament, Italian Open, Rome.

The German tennis player didn’t even give his opponent, American tennis player Lauren Davis, any chance to move.

The former world number 1 tennis player breezed into the second round of the Italian Open with confidence. The tennis player who has won three Grand Slam titles appeared strong when he crushed world number 194 Davis with a landslide result of 6-1, 6-0.

Kerber, who lost to Davis in three sets in the second round of Wimbledon in the 2019 season, faced no problems against the American player in this meeting. He never let anything go wrong at the Grand Stand Arena, Rome and converted the second match point opportunity after just over an hour.

Throughout the match, the 36-year-old consistently put pressure on the 30-year-old Davis as he converted five of the nine break point opportunities he created and saved the only break point chance he faced.

The German tennis player also won 77 percent of points from his first serve and 56 percent of points from his second serve, while Davis could only win 39 percent of points from his first serve and 64 percent of points from his second serve.

Awaiting Angelique Kerber in the second round of the Italian Open is 17th seed Veronika Kudermetova, whom she beat in their first meeting at Indian Wells in the 2024 season.

Meanwhile, the two host tennis players, Martina Trevisan and Lucrezia Stefanini, ended with different fates.

Goddess of fortune was not on Trevisan’s side after she lost to Kazakhstan national Yulia Putintseva, who won 6-3, 6-4 and will be the opponent of the 31st seed, Sloane Stephens, in the second round of the Italian Open.

Stefanini had better luck after he was able to survive and beat his compatriot, Vittoria Paganetti, 7-5, 6-3. In the second round, she will meet the 29th seed, Linda Noskova.

Meanwhile, Magdalena Frech will challenge third seed Cori Gauff after the Polish national beat American Ashlyn Krueger 7-6, 6-3 in the first round.
