The recent global medical scare brought the whole world to a standstill. The courts of the tennis world were no exception, as various events got canceled or postponed, including the prestigious Wimbledon event that saw its first cancellation since World War 2. This resulted in an unwanted and unprecedented situation in which only a few tennis events were being played worldwide. In order to make up for the loss of events and revive the tennis world, a number of new tennis tournaments were held across the world. These included the Astana Open, whose inaugural edition was played in 2020.

However, since then, the event has been held annually as a combined men's and women's event. Thus, Astana Open is a part of the ATP and WTA tour.
