The Stuttgart Open, currently sponsored by Porsche and called the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, is a tennis tournament held in Stuttgart, Germany (until 2005, in Filderstadt, a southern suburb of Stuttgart). Held since 1978, the tournament is the oldest women's indoor tournament in Europe. As of 2013, it was a Premier tournament on the WTA Tour. The singles champion receives prize money and a Porsche 911 Carrera sports car.[1] Until 2008 the tournament was played on hardcourt in autumn. Since 2009 it is played on clay court in spring, as a warm-up tournament to the French Open, making it the first indoor clay court event on the women's tour.

The tournament has been won by many former number ones and Grand Slam champions. Martina Navratilova holds the record for most singles wins at the event, with six titles between 1982 and 1992, in addition to eight doubles titles. Tracy Austin and Martina Hingis both come second with four wins each in the singles event, with Austin winning four consecutive. This is followed by Lindsay Davenport and Maria Sharapova with three wins each.

Sharapova, the current champion has won the championship three consecutive times.
