Important career steps

A chance for up-and-coming players – fostering youngsters is also very important for Porsche in tennis. In addition to the Porsche Talent Team, which aims to support young players stepping up to the pro tour, the Porsche Junior Team forms the second pillar of the development strategy. Porsche and the “Deutsche Tennis Bund” (DTB – the German Tennis Association) therefore provide better training facilities and a more intensive coaching for the talented juniors.

“The aim for the Porsche Junior Team is to provide the players, some still go to school, with the best possible individual support so that they have a professional environment at home,"  explains Barbara Rittner, who, as Head of Women’s Tennis at the DTB, is responsible for junior and U-23 women’s tennis. “With this broad basis, we at the association want to guide even more players via the world junior rankings to the junior Grand Slams where they can gain valuable experience for the next stages of their careers.”

Josy Daems (born in 2006), Carolina Kuhl (2005), Anna Linn Puls (2006), Valentina Steiner (2006) and Sonja Zhenikhova (2008) are all currently supported in the Porsche Junior Team.
