Witness world tennis stars live – Porsche opens ticket sales29th Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, 1st to 9th October 2005

Stuttgart. After receiving confirmation from French Open winner Justine Henin-Hardenne (Belgium) as well as Elena Dementieva, Anastasia Myskina and Nadia Petrova (all Russia), to play at the 29th Porsche Tennis Grand Prix held from 1st to 9th October at Filderstadt near Stuttgart, a top class field is emerging for this year's traditional tournament.

For 2005, Porsche offers tennis enthusiasts special value ticket packages to watch one of the world's best women's tennis tournaments. With the "Cayenne" ticket package, two adults and two children can witness the semi-final or final matches live from the grandstands for 135 Euros. The "Boxster" package offers similarly attractive prices for singles. Porsche has also reserved tickets for "Family Day" and "Ladies Day" at particularly reasonable prices. For those wanting to experience the entire Tennis Grand Prix from the first to the last day, passes are available at even more attractive prices than in 2004. On the qualifying days (1st & 2nd October) admission to the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix is free.

Tickets for the longest-running European indoor women's tennis tournament are available via www.porsche-tennis.de or at the FILharmonie Filderstadt (tel. +49 (0) 711 708 93 94), the tournament's new partner.

The latest press releases and photos leading up the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix are available to journalists on the Porsche press database ( presse.porsche.de ), where the new logo as well as the current tournament poster are available to download.
