The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix has been held in Stuttgart since 1978, making it the longest-running women's indoor tournament in Europe.
The very first player to win here was US tennis star Tracy Austin with
other famous names such as Martina Navratilova, Lindsay Davenport and
Martina Hingis following in her footsteps. Since 2009 the tournament has
been played on clay, making history as the first indoor clay tournament
on the international tour.
