More about the year 2011
Sensational win for Julia Görges in the dream final — she beats Caroline Wozniacki, the world No. 1 from Denmark. Although the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix is a German invention, she is only the second German to win the long-established tournament. “I had goose-bumps at match point. It was an amazing feeling playing in the final with so many people watching,” said Julia Görges. Besides her first drive in her new Porsche, she is particularly looking forward to two things: “My niece’s baptism on Monday and finally being able to sleep in my bed again after three months on tour.” Down-to earthiness wins.
