More about the year 2018
Karolina Pliskova is not yet in possession of a driver’s licence – but a dream car. By winning the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, the 26-year old Czech received, alongside the prize money and world ranking points, a 718 Boxster GTS as the main prize. In the high-class and thrilling final at the long-standing Stuttgart tournament on Sunday, she defeated the impressive Coco Vandeweghe 7-6 (2), 6-4 in front of capacity 4,500 crowd in the once again sold-out Porsche Arena.“It was a very intensive match. Winning this wonderful car is the best motivation to finally take my driving test,” said Karolina Pliskova before Dr. Wolfgang Porsche, the Supervisory Board Chairman of Porsche AG, handed her the winner’s trophy and Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, chauffeured her onto court for the winner’s photo.
