Wimbledon, the US Open, the Australian Open … and the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix! Drawing on a wealth of archival material including photographs, posters and catalogues, this book celebrates 40 years of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, the longest-running women’s indoor tournament in Europe and since 2013 a premier tournament on the Women’s Tennis Association Tour.

With an emphasis on visual staging in its graphic design, 40 : LOVE is no average jubilee book but a sleek, intricate scrapbook exploring the stories of the players who defined a new era of women’s tennis— including Martina Navratilova, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Martina Hingis, Maria Sharapova and Angelique Kerber. This is an in-depth, behindthe- scenes look at the history of the tournament, the characters of its champions both on and off the court, and the design development of its principal sponsor Porsche over the course of four decades.
