It has already become a tradition at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix that the ladies are visited by two gentlemen on the first day of the main draw matches. This time around, the Berenberg Classics has brought together Andre Agassi (USA) and Thomas Muster (Austria) for the eagerly-awaited Duel of Legends. The match in the Porsche Arena has been televised live on Eurosport. “A piece of tennis history comes alive when two such players walk out onto court. Andre Agassi in particular made his mark on the game over many years and played some unforgettable matches,” said Tournament Director Markus Günthardt. “The Berenberg Classics is an integral part of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and a further highlight for our spectators in the Porsche Arena to look forward to. When Pete Sampras played here last year, many thought it couldn’t get any better. But it’s been topped by Andre Agassi.”
There is huge interest in the Duel of the Legends and it is quite likely that there will be a capacity crowd in the Porsche Arena. “Tennis fans know that tennis’ big names come to Stuttgart for the Berenberg Classics and that they’ll again serve up some exciting tennis entertainment,” said Oliver Holtz, the manager of the Berenberg Bank’s Stuttgart branch. “Tennis legends like McEnroe, Wilander, Lendl, Edberg, Sampras, Agassi and Muster played the Berenberg Classics so far.”
