The world’s top players at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix will once again present a high-class playing field. Nine Top 10 players and a total of nine Grand Slam champions are included in the official entry list for the 47th edition of the long-standing tournament scheduled for Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena from 13 to 21 April.

“We’ll again be presenting our loyal spectators in the Porsche Arena with the world’s top players. It’s our goal,” says Tournament Director Markus Günthardt. The Operating Tournament Director Anke Huber adds: “Having so many top stars is not a given. What pleases me most is that the American players will be coming over to Europe so early in the season especially for our tournament.”

A Porsche Tennis Grand Prix stalwart is the Porsche Friend Poland, Iga Swiatek. World ranked No. 1, the two-time Stuttgart winner – she is undefeated in the Porsche Arena – heads the official WTA entry list. Last year, the Pole won six tournaments including the WTA 1000 event in Doha, the French Open in Roland Garros and the WTA Finals. This year, she has already successfully defended her Doha title and won last week’s WTA 1000 event in Indian Wells.

Four reigning Grand Slam champions set for the Porsche Arena

The world No. 2 and recently crowned Australian Open winner Aryna Sabalenka will return to the Porsche Arena where she was the runner-up in the past three years after losing to the world No. 1 – 2021 Ashleigh Barty, 2022 and 2023 Iga Swiatek – on each occasion.  Also back in Stuttgart is Coco Gauff. As one as the biggest talents in the game of tennis, the 20-year-old American made her big breakthrough in her fifth year on the Tour in summer 2023. After wins in Washington and Cincinnati, she claimed her first Grand Slam title at the US Open and kicked-off the new season with a success in Auckland. She has thus cemented her No. 3 world ranking. As the entry list also includes Marketa Vondrousova (Czech Republic/No. 8) – she enjoyed her biggest career success by winning Wimbledon in 2023 – it means all four reigning Grand Slam champions will be contesting the long-established Stuttgart tournament.

Another Grand Slam champion is Elena Rybakina, the current world No. 4. The 24-year-old Kazakh, who was last Top 10 player to add her name to the Stuttgart entry list just before the deadline, won Wimbledon in 2022. She started the 2024 season with wins in Brisbane and Abu Dhabi and has thus increased her number of WTA titles to seven. Alongside Wimbledon, her most notable wins were the ones at the WTA 1000 events in Indian Wells and Rome.

Jessica Pegula to make her Porsche Tennis Grand Prix debut

Jessica Pegula will be making her first appearance at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. The current world No. 5 from USA has won four career titles including the WTA 1000 events in Montreal (2023) and Guadalajara (2022). She is even more successful in the doubles alongside Coco Gauff as the pairing has claimed five tournaments to date. Wins in Doha and Miami, where they won in 2023, mean they have two WTA 1000 victories to their names. Other Top 10 players in the Porsche Arena are the three-time Grand Slam runner-up Ons Jabeur (Tunisia/No. 6), this year’s Australian Open runner-up Qinwen Zheng (China/No. 7) and finally Jelena Ostapenko (Latvia/No. 10), the 2017 French Open champion.

As Barbora Krejcikova (Czech Republic), the Roland Garros winner in 2021, and the  Porsche Brand Ambassadors Angelique Kerber (Germany) and Emma Raducanu (Great Britain) are also in the line-up, it means the number of Grand Slam champions increases to nine.

Impressive youngsters could spring well a surprise

One of the players to have already hit the headlines this season and who could well spring a surprise in Stuttgart is the Italian Jasmine Paolini. The current world No. 14 sensationally won the WTA 1000 tournament in Dubai in February. Spectators can also look forward to the American Emma Navarro (No. 20), the Hobart International winner in January and Marta Kostyuk (No. 26). The 21-year-old Ukrainian, who won in Austin in 2023 and stood in the 2024 San Diego final, is considered one of the top up-and-coming players on the WTA Tour.

Porsche in Tennis

The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix is the flagship of Porsche’s worldwide involvement in women’s tennis. First played in Filderstadt in 1978, the long-standing Stuttgart tournament has been held in the city’s Porsche Arena since 2006. It stands for tradition and innovation, as does the Porsche brand. As the most loyal sponsor of women’s international tennis, Porsche has accompanied the WTA’s oldest indoor event right from the start. Together with its subsidiaries, the sports car manufacturer will to date be the automotive partner of the WTA tournaments in Cluj-Napoca (Romania) and Bastad (Sweden). Angelique Kerber and Emma Raducanu give Porsche a face in tennis as Brand Ambassadors. Jule Niemeier, Maria Sakkari, Karolina Muchova, Anett Kontaveit and Iga Swiatek are additionally “Friends of the Brand” in their home countries. As a premium partner of the “Deutsche Tennis Bund” (DTB – German Tennis Association), the company has been supporting Porsche Team Germany in the Billie Jean King Cup since 2012 and fosters up-and-coming players in the Porsche Talent Team and the Porsche Junior Team.
