Porsche Tennis Grand Prix to have a world class field again in 2014
porsche-tennis.de April 21 2014 Stuttgart. The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix will once again bring the world’s best tennis players to Stuttgart in 2014. Seven Top 10 players have already entered for the 37th edition of the long-standing tournament which will take place from 19 to 27 April. In addition to title holder Maria Sharapova (Russia) and Angelique Kerber, the German No. 1, 2013 runner-up Li Na (China), Agnieszka Radwanska (Poland), Petra Kvitova (Czech Republic), Sara Errani (Italy) and the former world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki (Denmark) will also be appearing in the Porsche Arena.
“It means we can already offer our spectators a world class field,” said Tournament Director Markus Günthardt. That, at this early point in time, so many top stars have decided to come to the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix is something he sees as being “a compliment and an indication of the trust the players have in our tournament.
They simply love coming here.” However, his efforts are still far from over: “Obviously we will continue to strive to entice further top stars to Stuttgart. After all, it’s our aim to get better and better.”
