Coco Gauff and Novak Djokovic win the Porsche supported Western & Southern Open

Coco Gauff celebrated the biggest win of her career when winning the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.  Novak Djokovic won the men’s tournament. For the fifth time Porsche Cars North America was a sponsor and the exclusive vehicle partner of the WTA and ATP Masters 1000 tournament in the state of Ohio, USA.

It could well turn out to be Coco Gauff’s summer. Just two weeks after her tournament win in Washington D.C., the 19-year-old American won her first ever Masters title at the Western & Southern Open by defeating the Czech Karolina Muchova 6-3, 6-4 in the final. For the new world No. 6, who competed at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in April and who has previously won in Auckland (2023), Parma (2021) and Linz (2019), it was her fifth singles career success on the WTA Tour. She has thus made tennis history by becoming the first teenager to win three tournaments in a season since Bianca Andreescu in 2019. She is also the first teenager to win five career titles since Caroline Wozniacki in 2007.

It’s nice to see how this tournament has developed.”

In the men’s, Novak Djokovic (Serbia) defeated the Spanish world No.1 Carlos Alcaraz 5-7, 7-6(7) 7-6(4) in a tennis thriller lasting almost four hours.

The only pity is that you can’t tap the full potential of the car in USA,” she said before letting on that her favourite Porsche is the Panamera: “It’s my big favourite. It’s the ideal car for daily use because it’s sporty and comfortable at one and the same time. And I just love its design.”

As part of the US Open Series, it is an important port of call for the players en route to the US Open in New York. The year’s final Grand Slam will begin on 28 August. Iga Swiatek is the women’s defending champion.
