MercedesCup 2021 winner is getting a Mercedes-Benz EQS


This is for you, winner!

The MercedesCup 2020 didn’t happen due to obvious reasons and now that things are starting to get better — at least in some countries, the 42nd MercedesCup will take place from 7 to 13 June 2021, in Stuttgart, Germany, and the winner is getting the EQS — the first all-electric luxury saloon from Mercedes-Benz.

Shortly before the start of the tournament, the EQS had been hovering high above the grass courts. The winner is getting the AWD model with 385 kW (523 metric hp) and 770 km (478 mi) range.

As the title sponsor of the MercedesCup, we are very pleased that the tournament can take place after the interruption last year. The MercedesCup is the first stop of the grass court season, and the outstanding field of participants speaks for itself. I am excited to see which player will triumph and take home the new EQS. – Britta Seeger, Member of the Board of Management of Daimler and Mercedes‑Benz, responsible for Marketing & Sales


Numerous international tennis professionals have confirmed their participation, despite a scheduling overlap with the French Open Grand Slam tournament. Besides the current best German player, Alexander Zverev, the 19-year-old star Jannik Sinner from Italy will also be playing at the Tennis Club Weissenhof. This, however, depends on his performance at the tournament in Paris. Furthermore, Germany’s number two Jan‑Lennard Struff and the three Canadians Denis Shapovalov, Milos Raonic and Felix Auger-Aliassime also plan to set course for Stuttgart.

Besides the EQS, another attraction is gonna be 270-degree LED boards that’ll electrify the center court for the first time. These LED boards will frame the center court on three sides and display different graphics during the matches — from the toss of a coin before the first serve to the match point at the end of the last set.
