WTA Stuttgart 2018 tournament schedule

Who is playing WTA Stuttgart in 2018?

It’s not often that top 15 players can face off in the opening round, but that’s consistently the case at the star-studded WTA Premier Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart, where the very best in women’s tennis gather in an attempt to launch their respective clay court seasons with a title.

Incredibly, with all the star-power present in Stuttgart last year, it was local hope Laura Siegemund who came through the field and emerged triumphant with the title. Siegemund, who has been awarded a wildcard this year after she suffered a season-ending injury shortly after winning Stuttgart, will unsurprisingly have her work cut out for her if she is to defend her crown in 2018.

Remarkably again, Angelique Kerber is the only current top 15 player that has won the Stuttgart title before, capturing the silverware in back-to-back years from 2015-16, while Maria Sharapova - a three-time champion from 2012-14 - has received another wildcard into the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix after returning at the tournament from a 15-month doping back 12 months ago.

World No. 1 Simona Halep, Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza, French Open winner Jelena Ostapenko, U.S. Open and Miami champion Sloane Stephens, along with Karolina Pliskova, Elina Svitolina, Caroline Garcia and Petra Kvitova make up the rest of the top 10 players who will be battling for supremacy in Stuttgart, while they will be joined by the likes of Julia Goerges - a Stuttgart champion in 2010 - Madison Keys, Kristina Mladenovic, Daria Kasatkina and Anastasija Sevastova.

Suffice to say, it promises to be another electrifying edition of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix as main draw action gets underway on Monday April 23!

About the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

The oldest women’s indoor tennis event in the world, the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix has a rich history stretching back to 1978 with Martina Navratilova winning six singles and eight doubles titles between 1982 and 1992. Navratilova remains the all-time record holder in Stuttgart, but other luminaries including Gabriela Sabatini, Mary Pierce, Martina Hingis, Lindsay Davenport, Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin, Jelena Jankovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova joined her on the tournament’s roll of honour in the event’s first lifetime as an autumn hard-court event.

It was in 2009, however, that the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix transformed itself into its current form, becoming a spring event played on indoor clay. The calendar and surface change revitalized the event, and the decision to use French clay with an 0.1mm grain size – the same used at Roland Garros – proved to be a shrewd one. Stuttgart now offers an unparalleled opportunity for players to warm up for the French Open on a similar surface, and its calendar position in early April – ahead of the major Premier events in Madrid and Rome – means that the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix now marks the beginning of the WTA Tour’s European clay-court season.

Now the first landmark in the run-up to Roland Garros, WTA Stuttgart has attracted star-studded fields since its transformation to a clay event in 2009 and features one of the most packed draws you will see throughout the WTA Tour calendar, with top-10 and top-20 players often colliding in the first round. Justine Henin was the first to win Stuttgart as a clay event in 2010 and Julia Goerges thrilled the home crowds with her run to the title in 2011, but in recent years the tournament has become the exclusive property of one Maria Sharapova.

The two-time French Open champion has played her best tennis of the past few seasons on clay and it has showed in Stuttgart, where at one point she owned an unbeaten 13-0 record and has collected a trio of titles, beating Victoria Azarenka (2012), Li Na (2013) and Ana Ivanovic (2014) in the finals. Sharapova’s 2014 title was particularly memorable as she was on the verge of dropping out of the top 10 and Lucie Safarova served for the match against her in the first round; after capturing the Stuttgart title, she went on to win the Mutua Madrid Open and her second French Open title at Roland Garros.

The 2015 edition of WTA Stuttgart saw Sharapova’s reign ended in the second round by Angelique Kerber, who defeated the defending champion 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 and went on to beat Ekaterina Makarova, Madison Brengle and Caroline Wozniacki in a gripping final. Triumphing 3-6, 6-1, 7-5 over Wozniacki to thrill the home crowds by capturing the trophy – already the second Premier-level title she had won in 2015 – Kerber went on to win in Birmingham and Stanford and ended the season back inside the top 10. 

Kerber returned in 2016 as a Grand Slam champion and successfully defended a title for the first time in her career in Stuttgart, defeating compatriot Laura Siegemund, whose giant-killing run through qualifying and the main draw lit up the Porsche Arena. Kerber would go on to win the second Grand Slam title of her season at the US Open and rise to the world no. 1 ranking. 

The 2017 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix was famous as the location for the return of Maria Sharapova from a doping ban, with the Russian playing some great tennis immediately as she made the semi-finals, where she would be upstaged by Kristina Mladenovic. On the other side of the draw it was wildcard Laura Siegemund who was making an unexpected run through the draw, with the German conquering Svetlana Kuznetsova, Karolina Pliskova and Simona Halep before taking out Mladenovic for the biggest title of her career.
