Porsche Tennis Grand Prix 2016’s favourite tournament
WTA Tour players vote the long-established Stuttgart tournament as their favourite event.
The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix was also named the world’s favourite tournament in 2016. For the eight time now, the players voted the long-established event in Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena as the best-loved tournament in its category (Premier 700). “We’re delighted to be given the award. It comes from the players themselves which shows just how much they feel at home in Stuttgart. It’s what makes it so special,” said Tournament Director Markus Günthardt. “For us the recent honour is a big indication of their trust and a spur, especially in view of the 40th anniversary in 2017, to do everything to make the tournament even better.”
The 2017 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, for which, in addition to Angelique Kerber as the title-holder and world No. 1, seven Top 10 have confirmed their coming, will take place in Stuttgart‘s Porsche Arena from 22 to 30 April.
