It happened in the first changeover of the final between Martina Hingis and Mary Pierce when the crowd applauded a fellow player sitting in the VIP box next to Porsche chairman Dr. Wendelin Wiedeking. A few weeks after retiring from tournament tennis, Stefanie Graf came to Filderstadt to watch the tournament. Martina Hingis raised her racket in the direction of her former rival as if to say, “Come down, do you want to play for me?” Stefanie Graf laughed and refused the offer. She had in the meantime established herself as a keen observer of the sport she had so dominated for over a decade. The final was over in no time at all.
