Must read


The latest big event on the 2024 WTA Tour is up and running in Germany, with the first round of the 46th edition of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix from Stuttgart. Following two days of qualifying matches and finals, the stage is set for some of the leading lights in women’s tennis, none more so than world number one and defending champion Iga Swiatek.

Atop the pile of 24 seeded players coming into the tournament’s first round, 22-year-old Polish star Swiatek will be looking to make it three victories in a row, having defeated second seed Aryna Sabalenka in each of the past two finals. 

Sabalenka is on a run of three final appearances and three losses, having also been pipped 3-6 6-0 6-3 by Australia’s Ash Barty in the 2021 tournament, and with players like Coco Gauff, Ons Jabeur and Emma Raducanu all looking to make an impact in Stuttgart, there’s an enthralling week of tennis ahead.

2024 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix tennis tickets 

  • Tickets: StubHub
  • Cheapest: $99
  • Most expensive: $151

Tickets for this year’s Porsche Tennis Grand Prix are selling at a rapid rate of knots on StubHub, with the previously cheapest and most expensive on offer already hoovered up! That includes the final on April 21, which is completely sold out, and there’s limited availability left across the board leading up to the decider. 

Thankfully, StubHub has you covered with a full seating plan of Centre Court at the Porsche-Arena, meaning you’ll be able to choose exactly where you want to sit — if there are still seats left.

This event also doesn’t have a massively wide range of pricing akin to other tennis tournaments, with the cheapest tickets still on sale beginning at $99, but the most expensive still on the StubHub market being just $151.
