Former world No.1 and three-time grand slam winner Angelique Kerber is working hard on her comeback and already has her mind on the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.
Asked whether she could see a double Olympic gold for Germany with champion Alexander Zverev, she told the Bild newspaper: "Very much! When we meet in Australia, we will definitely talk about it.
"It would make me very happy. The Olympics in Paris are the highlight and playing for Germany is always an honour."
Kerber, 35, gave birth in February and plans to return when the new season starts at the end of the year in Australia at the United Cup. She hasn't played since the summer of 2022.
She would also like to be the flag bearer for Germany at the Olympics opening ceremony.
"It would be indescribable for any athlete to walk in with the German flag. And it's also a dream of mine," she said in the interview published on Wednesday.
The player, however, can't yet estimate how fit she will be for her comeback to the court.
"I've done everything, I feel good, we're right on schedule. But it is too early to make a prediction," she said.
