First-round action continued at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix on Tuesday. As usual, we’ll lead you through the day’s WTA happenings with the help of Jimmie48‘s amazing photography.
Fourth seed Elina Svitolina was all smiles as she flaunted her engagement ring during a press conference. The Ukrainian got engaged to fellow tennis player Gael Monfils earlier this month.
Our Jimmie48 made sure to capture a closeup of the ring.
Russian Ekaterina Alexandrova recovered from a set down on her main-draw debut in Stuttgart to defeat Czech Karolina Muchova 4-6 6-2 6-3.
Muchova is clad in new Adidas collection, just as doubles partners Angelique Kerber and Andrea Petkovic.
The German doubles team, wearing the Adidas Prime Dope Dye Dress, defeated fourth seeds Jelena Ostapenko and Lyudmyla Kichenok.
The 2019 Porsche Tennis Grand Prix runner-up Anett Kontaveit recorded a comfortable 6-2 6-3 victory over unranked German Julia Middendorf.
