The 32-year-old has not won a title since picking up her third Grand Slam at Wimbledon in 2018 under then coach Wim Fissette.

Kerber, currently ranked 21st in the world, has had multiple stints with Beltz since they first started working when she turned professional in 2003.

She had the most successful year of her career in 2016 when she won the Australian Open and U.S. Open, finished runner-up at the WTA Finals, and rose to No. 1 in the world.

Kerber split with Beltz the following year.

The WTA Tour is set to restart on Aug. 3 in Italy after a five-month halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
