The fans will be close to the action at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix
The 44th Porsche Tennis Grand Prix will be held in the Porsche Arena without spectators due to the pandemic regulations. However, the fans will be close to all the action and will not have to miss any of the play.
They will be able to participate in the event as a part of the multimedia tennis experience with extra live transmissions on television and in internet as well as interactive digital services. The world’s best women tennis players will once again be appearing at the long-established Stuttgart tournament from 17 to 25 April.
“We’ve come up with a lot of new ideas to give them a highly intensive and emotional tournament experience via the digital and social platforms.”
Live on television and in internet
To ensure tennis fans do not miss any of the action, this year for the first time every singles match from the qualification can be watched in a freely accessible live stream on the tournament website at www.porsche-tennis.com in Germany. Eurosport’s Wolfgang Nadvornik will commentate on most of the matches live and exclusively and will welcome interesting and expert partners to the microphone like the tournament director Markus Günthardt or the Porsche Brand Ambassador Julia Görges, the now-retired sensational winner of the 2011 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.
The most important encounters will be televised live as usual by the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix’s long-time German TV partners. The regional SWR channel will begin their live transmissions on Wednesday and will televise play, like on Thursday, in the Porsche Arena from 1.30 to 4.30 pm. As an extra service, action from the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix can be seen on the n-tv news channel’s highlights show from Wednesday onwards.

It will be live-streamed from 10.30 to 11.15 am on Porsche newsTV at newstv.porsche.com as well as on the tournament’s social media platforms. Taking part will be the two-time Stuttgart winner Angelique Kerber, Porsche Vice President Communications, Sustainability and Politics Sebastian Rudolph and Tournament Director Markus Günthardt.
