Press’s goal came from the penalty spot in the 30th minute after being fouled in the box by Courage goalkeeper, Sabrina D’Angelo. Press calmly buried her second penalty attempt of the season.

2017 French Open player profile: Angelique Kerber

Tevon King | Two-time Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber will return to the French Open, looking to set the record straight. The German suffered a disappointing first-round exit at the hands of Kiki Bertens on her last outing in Paris last year. However, a little consolation for Kerber is that Bertens went on to reach the semifinals at Roland Garros. Furthermore, 2017 hasn't been a stellar year for the German but she will be looking to turn it around in the French capital. Notable results to date The world number one had a disappointing start to the season Down Under. Kerber lost to Elina Svitolina in the quarterfinals in Brisbane, and she suffered a second-round loss to Daria Kasatkina in Sydney. The German entered the Australian Open as the top seed and defending a title at a Slam for the first time. She needed three sets to defeat Lesia Tsurenko and Carina Witthoeft but thrashed Kristyna Pliskova in three sets. Kerber's title defense came to a crashing end to Coco Vandeweghe in the fourth round. The American overpowered Kerber with a loss of just five games. The reigning US Open champion suffered another loss to Kasatkina in Doha but her form slightly improved in her next three events. Svitolina once again got the better of Kerber in the semifinals in Dubai. However, the 29-year-old's two results at the Premier Mandatory events were good. She defeated Andrea Petkovic and Pauline Parmentier in the first two rounds in Indian Wells but lost to eventual champion Elena Vesnina in the...
