The WTA stars have gotten closer with the fans all week at the NÜRNBERGER VERSICHERUNGSCUP.
From autograph sessions around the grounds to signing autographs straight after their matches...
They've been keeping the loyal fans of professional women's tennis very happy all week long.
Angelique Kerber has also kept her sponsors happy - she just signed with tournament sponsor NCP.
Caroline Garcia continued her breakthrough spring in Nürnberg - and sat down for an interview.
WTA rising star Belinda Bencic signed autographs then posed with the tournament car, the Mini Cooper.
And then the wonderful dolphin visit - Karin Knapp and her coach went to the Nürnberg zoo.
The Nürnberg zoo is the second largest zoo in Germany and welcomed the Italian star with open arms.
As did the dolphins...
After meeting the dolphins, Knapp and her coach watched the dolphin show for a while.
She then toured the rest of the zoo.
Knapp reached the semifinals in Nürnberg before falling to the No.2 seed, Eugenie Bouchard.
Antonia Lottner, Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Marina Erakovic went on a wild ride thanks to Lotto...
Lotto, a tournament sponsor, brought a hot air balloon to the soccer field on site - and they flew.
The wind pushed the gang across the city... we're not really sure if they came back or not.
