The following is the prize money up for grabs for women tennis players at the 2014 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, which is being played from April 19th to April 27th, 2014, on the indoor clay courts at the Porsche Arena in Stuggart, Germany.
The Porsche Tennis Grand Prix is a premier event on the WTA Tour, and usually attracts a very good field of players. That includes Maria Sharapova, who is back to defend her title for the third straight year.
Previous winners include Julia Goerges, who has one of the hottest bodies in tennis in 2014 (check out the photos). Many women players show up at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix because the winner of the tournament gets a brand new Porsche in addition to the prize money shown.
All prize money is in U.S. dollars. The prize money is not cumulative, players only earn the amount shown for the round they advance to. The doubles prize money is per team.
