Garbine Muguruza wins season’s final big title

Garbine Muguruza is the 2021 tennis queen: the Spaniard won the WTA Finals and therefore the season’s last big title in Guadalajara/Mexico. Porsche is an official partner of the prestigious year-ending tournament for the world’s most successful women players.

In an exciting final in front of a highly enthusiastic crowd, Garbine Muguruza beat the surprise finalist Anett Kontaveit 6-3, 7-5 in the Mexican metropolis’ Pan American Tennis Center to win the Billie Jean King Trophy. Previously a semifinalist in Singapore in 2015, Garbine Muguruza is the first Spaniard to win the WTA Finals.

It means really a lot to me to win such a big, big, big tournament in Latin America, here in Mexico. I think it's just perfect. I always feel welcome and happy here, said the 28-year-old Venezuelan-born Spaniard. In 2018 and 2019, she won back-to-back titles at the WTA tournament in Guadalajara and basically had a home advantage and the enthusiastic fans on her side. “The moment the WTA Finals was relocated to Guadalajara, I said to myself: okay, Garbine, it’s your big chance.

Exciting “Porsche Race to the WTA Finals”

The season’s eight most successful players qualified for the showdown in Guadalajara via the exciting “Porsche Race to the WTA Finals”. It was topped by Ashleigh Barty, the title holder and winner of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. As the world No. 1 from Australia declined to travel to Mexico, the WTA Finals were contested by Aryna Sabalenka (Belarus), Maria Sakkari (Greece), Iga Swiatek (Poland) and Paula Badosa (Spain) in Chichén Iztá group plus Barbora Krejcikova (Czech Republic), Karolina Pliskova (Czech Republic), winner of the 2018 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, Garbine Muguruza (Spain) and Anett Kontaveit (Estonia) in the Teotihuacán group.

“The Finals were a huge success”

The short-term relocation of the WTA Finals from the Chinese high-tech metropolis of Shenzhen to Guadalajara in no way diminished the attractivity of the tournament. The highly enthusiastic Mexican fans generated a fantastic atmosphere.

Our Mexican friends were magnificent hosts. We would like to thank Porsche Latin America and Porsche Center Guadalajara, who, with their commitment, contributed to the exciting event for all the tennis fans and customers.

Maria Sakkari and Martina Navratilova meet Porsche customers
