Julia Goerges won the biggest title of her young career yesterday beating World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki 76(3), 63 to capture the Porche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart.
The 22-year-old Goerges matches Anke Huber as the only Germans to win the prestigious title in Stuttgart.
“I had goosebumps at match point. It was an unbelievable feeling playing the final with so many people watching,” Goerges said. “Everything was going so well but you can never be sure against Caroline. She has turned lots of matches around when nobody expected her to. She is only beaten when the last point is over. Now I’m looking forward to my niece’s baptism on Monday and being able to sleep in my own bed again after three months traveling the tour!”
And for winning her second career title, the Bavarian Beauty was awarded with a new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet which she drove on to the court.
Goerges moves up from No. 32 to a career high 27 in the WTA rankings.
