It’s been just over twelve months since we introduced rising tennis star Amelie-Rose to you. Amelie was about to embark her journey playing 28 matches at Tennis clubs local to Porsche Centres En route to Stuttgart as part of #RoadtoStuttgart to compete in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix 2019. Although Amelie did not win the Grand Prix, she hit 91 aces during the International Tennis Tournament, at the Dutchbowl just on the German border in Holland playing girls from the USA, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Turkey and Spain.
Porsche Grand Prix 2021 will be held in America and Amelie now needs to spend the next twelve months training to get ‘heat conditioned’ ahead of the 2021 competition. Amelie has attended training academies in Cyprus, Barcelona and America and will continue to do so in preparation to avoid heat fatigue.
Coming up in 2020 Amelie will compete in the British Tour playing in Bolton and Edgbaston. She will also compete in the Paris TenProGlobal International Tennis Tournament in August.
Amelie has a rigid training schedule which also has to fit in around school. We are extremely proud to be supporting Amelie as our local rising star. Amelie attended the showroom with her father who is also her fitness coach to collect the new Porsche Drivers Selection gym water bottle, Porsche polo shirt and a Porsche Sun Visor peak cap.
We wish Amelie the very best of luck with her training and competitions throughout 2020 and we very much look forward to catching up with her in 2021 for the Porsche Grand Prix.
