Elena Rybakina Clinches Eighth WTA Title in Stuttgart Victory

Stuttgart, Germany witnessed Elena Rybakina's triumphant win at the WTA-500 category tournament, marking her eighth WTA title in a stellar career.

In a compelling final showdown, Kazakhstan’s top-ranked player decisively defeated Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk, currently holding the 27th spot in the Women’s Tennis Association rankings. The match concluded with a commanding scoreline of 6:2, 6:2 in favor of Elena, who capitalized on four out of six break points during the intense 1 hour and 9 minutes of gameplay.

Rybakina’s journey to the title saw her overcoming formidable opponents, including a notable semi-final victory against world number one Iga Swiatek, thereby halting Swiatek’s potential hat-trick at the tournament (the Pole claimed victory in Stuttgart in both 2022 and 2023).

For her outstanding performance and clinching the WTA Porsche Tennis Grand Prix 2024, Rybakina not only received 500 rating points but also a prestigious Porsche car.

Following the match, an emotional Elena expressed gratitude to her team, coach, and President of the Kazakhstan Tennis Federation, Bulat Utemuratov, who made a special trip to Stuttgart to support her.


President of Kazakhstan, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, extended his congratulations to Elena Rybakina on her remarkable victory.

This latest triumph adds to Rybakina’s impressive list of achievements, which includes her maiden WTA title at the 2019 WTA 250 tournament in Bucharest. She continued her winning streak in 2020 by claiming victory at the WTA 250 tournament in Hobart. The pinnacle of her career came in 2022 when she clinched the Wimbledon championship. In 2023, Rybakina secured two WTA 1000 trophies in Indian Wells and Rome. Earlier this year, she emerged victorious at the WTA 500 tournaments in both Brisbane and Abu Dhabi, solidifying her status as one of tennis’ most formidable talents.
