KUALA LUMPUR—Katharina Lehnert may not be as active in the pro circuit, but she’s in tip-top shape for the coming Southeast Asian Games tennis competitions.

The 23-year-old Lehnert arrived here Friday from Hanover, Germany, ahead of the Philippine tennis team which is due early Saturday.


“I haven’t been playing in tournaments lately,” Lehnert told the Inquirer.

Instead, she works full-time as a fitness instructor working in a gym and in private.


The 5-foot-9 stunner strolled the Sunway Putra Mall after checking in with the Philippine delegation secretariat.

Her last tournament was last March at Sharm El Sheik in Egypt, the same event she dominated four years ago.

Lehnert was a bronze medalist in women’s singles in Singapore 2015, and a silver medalist in both women’s doubles with Denise Dy, and women’s team with Dy and Clarice Patrimonio.

Tennis starts on Monday at National Tennis Center Sports Complex, Jalan Duta.
