“That was the biggest moment in my career, a special moment.
Kerber endured a really poor 2017, but she says a strong start in Australia set her up for a much better campaign last season.
“Overall it was a really good year for me,” she added.
“After winning Sydney and coming back to the Australian Open, that gave me a lot of confidence for the next months and rest of the year.”
