PYW Doubles Stuttgart

Welcome to Stuttgart, Germany! This German city is the host to the only indoor clay event of the year on the WTA calendar, but it certainly lures some top players. Thanks to its sponsorship from Porsche and excellent treatment of its players, this tournament attracts remarkable line-ups every year and is one of the most prestigious premier events on the calendar. This year, the doulbes field isn't quite as strong as could've been expected though, with the top seeds being Liezel Huber and Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez, who are not a regular tandem on the WTA tour. The second seeds though have established themselves as a team to watch this year though, with some recent success on the PYW doules tour, namely Daniela Hantuchova and Agnieszka Radwanska. Another notable team is Anna Chakvetadze, who is returning from a mystery illness this week, partnering Romanian clay court standout Alexandra Dulgheru, who recently finished runner-up in the PYW Doubles Marbella event. With these teams and many more, this prestigious tournament is sure to be exciting too! Vote now as the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix begins in Stuttgart!!!
