Kerber, who knocked out Venus Williams in her opening match in Sydney, said she was not yet back to her best form of 2016 when she won the Australian and US Opens.

Germany's Angelique Kerber won a seventh straight match as she steamed into the semi-finals of the Sydney International on Thursday boosting her confidence for next week's Australian Open.

It is an impressive start to the new year for Kerber, having won her four matches at last week's mixed teams Hopman Cup in Perth before her three victories in Sydney.

And these judges are appointees of three different presidents, Wynn by Barack Obama, Britt by Jimmy Carter and Osteen by George W. The court cast aside the argument that districts should not consider politics, saying partisanship is part of the system.

During the trophy presentation, Kerber said: "I am playing fantastic tennis again and feeling just great".

In men's quarterfinals, fourth-seeded Fabio Fognini beat No. 5 Adrian Mannarino 6-7 (4), 7-6 (4), 6-2, Daniil Medvedev defeated Paolo Lorenzi 6-3, 6-3, and Benoit Paire beat second-seeded Gilles Muller 6-4, 6-4.

Sydney-born de Minaur may live in Spain but he will have the entire crowd behind him as he attempts to win his first tour title at Sydney Olympic Park. "It feels very good to win my first title in my first tournament this year".

The second set witnessed an early exchange of breaks before Kerber broke the Australian to love to move 4-3 ahead. She reached the No. 1 ranking in September that year and was seeded No. 1 for last year's Australian Open, but was upset in the first round and her year-end ranking dropped to 21. I played some of my best tennis this week and it wasn't enough. "I feel like I am getting closer to my 2016 level".
