The World No. 1 will be at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix

Stuttgart. As Dinara Safina is in the line-up, it means the new world No. 1 will be at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix. The 22-year-old Russian, who will go into the long-established tournament in Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena from 25 April to 3 May as the top seed, will replace Serena Williams (USA) at the top of the WTA world rankings on Monday, April 20.

“Dinara has been playing so well recently that it was only a matter of time as to when she would become No 1,” said Tournament Director Markus Günthardt when talking about the Beijing Olympics silver medalist, who only last week was voted by her fellow players as the “Most Improved Player 2008”. That the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix will be played on clay for the very first time should benefit her. Last year’s French Open held on the clay at Roland Garros saw her go all the way to the final. Markus Günthardt is certain, “Whoever wins our tournament will have to beat Dinara.”

Dinara Safina will be the second Russian to assume the top spot on the world rankings. In doing so she will be continuing a family tradition as her brother Marat Safin was the men’s No. 1. from December 2000 to April 2001.

I love love Germany and theres no reason why Dina shouldn't like it! But that's some gossip there Esther! An apartment in Munich and she visits...wow!

Didn't Dina jog in the streets of Germany once? So,high chance in stuttgart she'll do the same, keep your eyes and ears peeled for gossip and take as many pics as you can ;) you have our blessings to resort to stalker-ish behaviour within the laws of course :angel:

„Stuttgart ist meine Nr. 1“

Stuttgart. Dinara Safina kann es kaum noch erwarten. „Ich bin so gespannt auf den Sandplatz in der Porsche-Arena“, sagte die neue Nummer 1 der Welt, als sie am Mittwochabend in Stuttgart eintraf. Der Porsche-Tennis-Grand-Prix wird vom 25. April bis 3. Mai erstmals auf Sand ausgetragen. Für die Russin, die am Montag ihren 23. Geburtstag feiert, war es keine Frage, dass sie bei ihrem Lieblingsturnier in die europäische Sandplatzsaison startet: „Stuttgart ist meine Nr. 1! Für mich ist es das mit Abstand beste Turnier. Uns Spielerinnen wird hier jeder Wunsch erfüllt.“

Mit sechs weiteren Top-10-Stars, darunter Olympiasiegerin Elena Dementieva (Russland) und Titelverteidigerin Jelena Jankovic (Serbien), spielt Dinara Safina beim Stuttgarter Traditionsturnier um insgesamt 700.000 Dollar Preisgeld und den neuen Porsche Boxster S. Den Sportwagen würde sie sich mit einem Sieg nur zu gerne selbst zum Geburtstag schenken: „Ein großartiges Auto. Ich würde es lieben, einen Porsche zu fahren.“

“Stuttgart is my No.1”

Stuttgart. Dinara Safina can hardly wait. “I’m so curious about the clay court in the Porsche Arena,” said the new world No. 1 when arriving in Stuttgart on Wednesday evening. The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix will be played for the first time ever on clay from 25 April to 3 May. For the Russian, who will celebrate her 23rd birthday on Monday, there was no question that she will be kicking off her clay court season at her favourite tournament. “Stuttgart is my No. 1! For me it’s the best tournament by a long way. We, the players, are treated so well here.”

Along with six other Top 10 players, including Olympic Champion Elena Dementieva (Russia) and title-holder Jelena Jankovic (Serbia), Dinara Safina will be competing for a total of 700,000 dollars prize money and the new Porsche Boxster S at the long-standing tournament. She would also dearly love to win and give herself a Porsche for her birthday. “A great car. I’d love to drive a Porsche.”

“Everybody will like the court”

Stuttgart. The world No. 1 was in a hurry. On the morning after arriving in Stuttgart Dinara Safina went straight to the Porsche Arena to practice on the new clay court that will be used for the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix for the first time this year. The 22-year-old tournament favourite from Russia was highly enthusiastic after only a few rallies. ”It’s an excellent court,” said Safina to Tournament Director Markus Günthardt. “We really will have the ideal preparation for the French Open in Paris.

The innovative court, which goes by the name “Conipur Tennis Force“, has two big advantages: it can be laid very quickly and it hardens very quickly. This is highly important as the Porsche Arena is a commercially run hall. There is only a limited amount of time available to construct and remove the court but the time factor plays no role in the court developed by Hans-Joachim Schneider and his German based company, Olfen. It will be laid by the Conica Technik division of BASF Construction Chemicals Europe AG, whose headquarters are in Schaffhausen, Switzerland.

“It can be built in 24 hours and, even more important, it hardens within 24 hours,” said Markus Günthardt. As a result, all the installations around the court, for instance the boxes, were finished within the tournament’s, which begins on Saturday, tight schedule. The tournament director and his Operating Tournament Director, Anke Huber took their time when searching for the best solution. The decision as to which court to use was only made on 19 January after a final test. “We decided in favour of this particular concept and we’re certain everybody will like it.”

In contrast to a normal clay court, which has an approximately 50 - 60 cm high base made of a wide variety of materials, the new court in the Porsche Arena is only 2.5 cm thick. The basic material is made of crushed tiles mixed with a binding material. It is laid completely level using a special laser controlled machine. Finely crushed brick is then spread on top of the base where most of it enters the pores and bonds with the base material.

The “clay” comes from France and its grain size of only 0.1 millimetres makes it exactly the same type of “clay” as the one used at the French Open in Roland Garros. Before being spread, it is mixed with a special oil which draws moisture from the air so that the court remains perfectly moist and does not need watering. Another advantage is that the special oil bonds the “clay” so that it remains dust-free when the players slide into the ball.

“In terms of the way the court plays, the surface in the Porsche Arena is 98 percent identical to the one at Roland Garros,” promises its inventor Hans-Joachim Schneider. “The surface is very compact. No indentations are left when the players slide and the bounce is always the same no matter where the ball lands so that bad bounces are virtually non-existent.”

An enormous amount of material will be used. Almost 40 tons of crushed tiles and four tons of finely crushed brick will go into the making of the approximately 800 square metre Centre Court in the Porsche Arena, which also has the same dimensions as at Roland Garros. All-in-all, five courts will be built for the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix.

The Centre Court in the Porsche Arena, Court 1 and the practice court in the Schleyer Halle will be removed and disposed of after the tournament. Markus Günthardt has also found an unusual waste disposal solution. The materials used for the courts in the Porsche Arena and the Schleyer Halle will be used for road construction. It is environmentally friendly and reduces costs.

...what it’s like being the world No. 1:
“It’s great waking up in the morning and knowing that you’re the world’s best tennis player. Many have the dream and it doesn’t come true. I’ve fulfilled my dream. A great feeling.”

...her further career:
“I always wanted to get to the top. I wanted to know what it felt like. I’m obviously enjoying the whole experience but I’ll keep my feet on the ground. You have to be passionate as the mission is a long way from being over. Life is made up of lots of steps and my next one is to win a Grand Slam.”

...talking to her coach during the matches:
“I’ve gone from 17 to 1 with him. He’s my boss on the court. We talk to each other like work colleagues, quite normally.“

...being a role model as No. 1:
“I think I have a few qualities children can look up to.”

...her good figure:
“I’ve worked really hard to get in shape and have also changed my diet. It’s my birthday today which is why I’ll have a piece of cake. It’s not something I do every day.”

...the clay in the Porsche Arena:
“The court is great. I practiced on it immediately after arriving here in Stuttgart and I have to say I really like playing on it.”

British eurosport 1 and 2 will show it from 2pm CET onwards until 10.45pm so I think we can catch Dina on tv cos there is live snooker afterwards :( So lets hope there are streams too!

honestly, I find snooker so boring...and especailly when there is no tennis because of that.
Normally the coverage of Stuttgart tournament was quite good...

Even most diehard Safina fans couldn't expect that scoreline. I mean Marat showed us how much you could mess up a lead...I still wouldn't be confident if she was 6-0 5-0 40-0 up! :lol: Occupational hazard as a Safin/a fan :lol:
