A visit to the Porsche Museum was at the top of Iga Swiatek’s wish list upon her return to Stuttgart, Germany this week. So, the two-time defending Porsche Tennis Grand Prix champion took advantage of her day off on Sunday to do just that. Her field trip enabled her not only to marvel at the many Porsche automobiles that make up the museum but also to find out more about the history of the famous German sports car manufacturer.

“I associate a lot with the Porsche brand. Not only the fantastic sports cars but also the on-court emotions I’ve enjoyed at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix,” said Swiatek before making her way to Zuffenhausen.

While walking around the museum, which this year is celebrating its 15th anniversary, there was amazement constantly written all over her face. “It’s so exciting seeing all the cars and finding out something about their history. I can’t only look at them, I can feel them too,” she added.

The World No. 1  from Poland has a close bond with Porsche, and not only because the two-time Porsche Tennis Grand Prix (2022 and 2023) winner has already been able to take two sports cars from Zuffenhausen back home with her. She represents the sports car manufacturer in her home country as the Porsche Friend Poland.

After her excursion into the world of Porsche, Swiatek, who has topped the WTA Rankings for almost 100 weeks, was back focussing on tennis. The title holder is one of the big favorites in the Porsche Arena, especially since she is undefeated in Stuttgart. Three consecutive title wins is something only Tracy Austin, Martina Navratilova and Maria Sharapova have managed to achieve.

Swiatek would love to join the list of greats and drive back to Poland after Sunday’s final in a Porsche Taycan 4S Sport Turismo, the big prize for the champion. However, she is not putting herself under any pressure. “I love the tournament here in Stuttgart and am really looking forward to it,” she said with a telling smile on her face. “We’ll now see what comes.”
