Behind the Scenes with Caroline Wozniacki

Danish women's tennis player Caroline Wozniacki got to meet a genuine classic at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix: the 959 S.

Tennis star Boris Becker once invested his price money in it: the Porsche 959 S. When it was first delivered to customers in 1986, this super sports car was considered the world's fastest street-legal production vehicle. Back then, the vehicle's technical equipment also made it a technology platform.

Technical expertise and speed are also important traits in tennis, and the tennis player Caroline Wozniacki and the 959 S harmonized together perfectly. As part of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, the world's number five participated in a short video clip for the tournament. In this clip, after a photo shoot the Danish player was chauffeured to the Porsche Arena in the red 959 S from the store rooms of the Porsche Museum. You can see the full video here:
