Angelique Kerber was awarded the German Sportswoman of the Year for 2018. It's the second time in her career that she's received the honor.

The recognition came after a stellar season in which she beat Serena Williams in the Wimbledon final, marking her third career Grand Slam.

She also won the title in Sydney and finished the year ranked No. 3. The 30-year-old reached the semifinals of the Australian Open and quarterfinals of the French Open, too.

Boris Becker was also on hand to help Kerber celebrate.

Former track cycling world champion Kristina Vogel finished second behind Kerber. Vogel became paraplegic after a horrific training accident in June. 

The 2018 season was a huge resurgence for the German. After winning two Slams in 2016, she slipped out of the Top 20 in 2017 only to make a sprint right back to toward the top in 2018.
