Julia Görges’ career was not always an upward one. However, with new self-confidence and constantly good performances she returned to winning ways after suffering injuries and setbacks. She celebrated her biggest win in 2017 when claiming the WTA Elite Trophy, the prestigious season-ending tournament in Zhuhai, China. In doing so, she became the third player after Serena Williams and Karolina Pliskova to break the magical barrier of 400 aces in a single season.

She was given the Fed Cup Heart Award by the ITF – the sport’s governing body – for her excellent displays for Porsche Team Germany in the Fed Cup. She began 2018 by winning the WTA title in Auckland, reached the Wimbledon semi-finals and achieved her highest world ranking to date – No. 9 – on 20 August. The 31-year old has been a Porsche Brand Ambassador since 2018. On 21 October 2020 Julia Görges announced her retirement from professional tennis.
