But I can do my normal fitness program, I have everything in my home, what I need to do this. And if everything goes according to Plan, I can beat this week with a special permit in the tennis base in Munich-Oberhaching, Germany also re-balls. Trainers are not allowed, as I have heard, showers are on-going. But it is definitely nice to hold a bat in Hand.

In a Video and other Porsche brand Ambassador to appeal to their Fans to even think in these times, positive, together and stick to the instructions of the authorities. How important is it?
Görges: Positive Thinking is always important. There are UPS and Downs in life. As an Athlete I had to manage in all the years with Victories and defeats, and this experience can transfer well into personal life. If we look around us these days, we see many things that are not so positive. Our freedom of movement is restricted, businesses are closed, many people are very Worried about their future. But only those who manage to stay positive, to help others and make them feel not to convey that you are in this difficult Situation alone. To be there for his fellow men, to stay home and to keep to the rules is an important prerequisite to get through this crisis.

your victory of 2011 is still present?
Görges: , of Course. With this success, my ascension has begun in the world. The memory of the great week in Stuttgart, is always there, not only when I play in the Porsche-Arena. I had not at that time expected in a dream in order to get to the finals and then to drive as a champion with the Porsche on the Centre Court. At the beginning of the week, I stood with my mother in front of the car, I know exactly, and we joked that this would be a nice Easter gift. Such moments will stay with me forever in memory.Görges: "Should see this crisis as a Chance"
What do you think it is different for you after Corona?
Görges: For me, this time something of a Trial in the life after the career. Of course, I'm by the crisis is limited in many areas, at the same time but I also have the freedom to do the things I had in my 13 years as a professional never the right time. Therefore, I see the positive. I now get a first impression of what my life could look like, if I have time, not more than a tennis player travel through the world.
you Can learn out of such a crisis?
Görges: Definitely. This is also very important, because if you put only the head in the Sand, you come out from a Deep, never again. After every bad Situation, a new door always opens. Behind many new and wonderful experiences waiting. We should see this crisis as a Chance and see how it goes after that, for us, what we can do in our lives different and better. Even if it is not, at the Moment, certainly not easy.Görges about tennis players: "I Have the impression that you enjoy this time"

when do you think will be re-played Tennis?
Görges: We are the largest global women's sports are. Therefore, I believe that it will only go further if all travel restrictions are dropped, so every player, anywhere you can go, without having to only once in quarantine. I very much hope, that will be the case this year. The most important prerequisite for the continuation of the Tour, however, is that the health of all Involved is guaranteed at all times. If I have to wait a month or two longer, then that's fine by me.
A wish to end it?
Görges: I sincerely hope that the crisis is over soon and everyone can pursue their profession with passion on the tennis court and in ordinary life.
