Exclusive starting line-up at the 46th Porsche Tennis Grand Prix: nine Top 10 ranked players and 17 from the Top 20 are set to appear in Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena from 15 to 23 April. They include both last year’s finalists, Iga Swiatek and Aryna Sabalenka. The Porsche Brand Ambassador and Grand Slam champion Emma Raducanu will also be in action in Stuttgart. Awaiting the winner of the WTA 500 tournament that has been held since 1978 is a Porsche Taycan Turbo S Sport Turismo as the main prize.
Stuttgart. Heading the entry list made public by the WTA, the main body organising professional women’s tennis, is the dominant world No. 1 and title-holder Iga Swiatek. In 2022, the Pole won the French and US Opens as well as a total of six WTA tournaments. This year, she has tasted success in Doha. Aryna Sabalenka, her opponent in last year’s final in the Porsche Arena and the current world No. 2, celebrated her biggest career achievement by winning the Australian Open. With the Wimbledon champion and this year’s Australian Open runner-up Elena Rybakina (Kazakhstan/No. 7) in the line-up, it means all three reigning Grand Slam champions will be competing.

The winner of the 2022 WTA Finals, Caroline Garcia (France/No. 4) and the current Olympic champion Belinda Bencic (Switzerland/No. 9) will once again be playing in the Porsche Arena. Other Top 10 players at the long-standing Stuttgart tournament are last year’s Wimbledon runner-up Ons Jabeur (Tunisia/No. 5), Coco Gauff (USA/No. 6), Daria Kasatkina (No. 8) and Maria Sakkari (Greece/No. 10).

“We want to present the world’s best players”
“Our aim is to present our audiences in the Porsche Arena with the world’s top tennis players. It’s the DNA of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix”, says Tournament Director Markus Günthardt when talking about the main draw field. Anke Huber, the Operating Tournament Director, adds: “Having so many top stars is a huge compliment for our tournament and the spectators in the Porsche Arena. The players thus show us that they love coming to Stuttgart.”
 
Wildcards for Maria, Niemeier and Raducanu
Three players have a main draw berth at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix after being given a wild card – Tatjana Maria, Jule Niemeier and Emma Raducanu. In 2022, Germany’s top two current players Tatjana Maria and Jule Niemeier contested an enthralling quarterfinal match in Wimbledon when writing a German tennis fairy tale at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. As former Grand Slam winner at the 2021 US Open, Emma Raducanu (Great Britain) received a Top 20 wild card.
 
The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix begins on Saturday, 15 April with the first round of qualifying. The final will take place on 23 April. In Germany,  Eurosport will televise the most important matches live. Livestreams will be available on Tennis Channel and Porsche Tennis TV at www.porsche-tennis.com.
