A look at Angelique Kerber's results from the European leg of the tour last year show that she has plenty of room for improvement:

Biography
 
Coached by Torben Beltz; trains at Schuettler/Waske Tennis Academy ... Started playing tennis at age 3 ... Mother's name is Beata (also her manager); father's name is Slawek; has one sister, Jessica ... Speaks German, Polish and English ... Enjoys shopping, sleeping, swimming, spending time with friends.

I would say maybe the same ranking 14th! If Angelique does not make it past 1sr round then maybe 20th!  French Open only lasted till the 2nd round back in 2010 and in Wimbledon 3rd round also in 2010.  Last year it was 1st round defeats in both.  If she can repeat her performance in the 2010 GS; then I would say 12 but I would not think she could since most of her wins are in much smaller tournaments with no top 10 players in the draw.
