Saturday was full of tennis-related events in New York and especially busy was the 2016 US Open champion Angelique Kerber. Aside from the usual daily practice, the German former world No.1 talked to the press during Media Day. Then she teamed up with Venus Williams, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the annual Arthur Ashe Kids’ Days. Afterwards, Kerber joined fellow Adidas players Garbine Muguruza, Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Pharrell Williams‘ “Don’t Be Quiet” event hosted by Adidas Tennis.
We have all that covered in photos, plus practice sessions of Petra Kvitova, Maria Sharapova, Eugenie Bouchard, and Karolina Pliskova.
