Monday at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix was all about the glamorous opening ceremony marking the start of the 40th edition of the tournament.
Early in the day, Karolina Pliskova did a Porsche Parking Challenge, even though she doesn’t even have a driving license, while Svetlana Kuznetsova completed the task in 1:58 minutes. Then my photographer Jimmie48 attended the press conferences of Naomi Osaka and Roberta Vinci (all eyes are on the Italian as she’s Maria Sharapova’s first opponent!). The players then glammed up for the flashy opening ceremony led by Germany’s Angelique Kerber inside the Porsche Arena.
