The centre court which witnessed more Steffi Graf tournament wins than any other is to be renamed in her honour.
Berlin's LTTC Rot-Weiss tennis club, the long-time host of the German Open, said the court will become the Steffi Graf Stadion from next month.
Graf, who won nine of her 107 WTA Tour titles at Rot-Weiss, will play a rare exhibition match on the court to mark the renaming ceremony on 25
The German star retired in 1999 after winning 22 Grand Slam titles.
