The ATP World Tour makes its way to Belgium for the European Open Tennis tournament in the second half of the year.

The European Open Tennis tournament is the only ATP World tour event staged in Belgium. Since 2016, the event has regularly been staged in Belgium and attracts players from all across the globe.

2023 Winner: Alexander Bublik

The European Open tennis tournament is played on hard indoor courts in Antwerp, Belgium.The excitement was easy to feel on the final day of the European Open, with everyone eagerly looking forward to the big match between Alexander Bublik, the third seed, and Arthur Fils, the 19-year-old French player who had impressively beaten the top-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-finals. This was their first time playing against each other, and the stakes were high.

Arthur Fils appeared somewhat troubled after losing the first set, quickly losing his serve early in the second. Unable to make a comeback and break his opponent's serve, Fils watched as the match gradually moved out of his reach. Bublik confidently served out the match, securing his victory and earning the title of 2023 European Open champion.

In the doubles category, the Tsitsipas brothers, Petros and Stefanos, came out on top.

Event Status - An ATP 250:

The event is organized as an ATP 250 tournament and was added to the ATP World Tour in 2016. It has been retained as a permanent fixture since then. It was one of the few ATP tour events that continued without any disruptions during the covid-19 restrictions.

Surface Specifications and Courts:

The event is played on hard indoor courts. These courts have less energy absorption when compared to clay courts. This results in a higher bounce and faster gameplay.


The event is played at the Lotto Arena in the largest city of Belgium, Antwerp, which is also the capital of the province in the Flemish Region.


The tournament features matches in both the singles and doubles categories.

Past Champions:

The event's inagural edition was won by Richard Gasquet of France, who won against Diego Schwartzman in the final with a score line of 7-6 (7-4) and 6-1. However, the champion of the inagural edition pulled out of the 2017 event, but his fellow countryman Jo Wilfried Tsonga managed to win the title, once again edging out Diego Schwartzman in the final.

The most high-profile final at the European championships was played between Britain's Andy Murray and Switzerland's Stan Wawrinka. The 2019 final ended in Murray's victory with the score line of 3-6, 6-4, and 6-4.

Diego Schwartzman has played in most finals as he featured in 3 of the 6 finals so far but hasn't been able to win the trophy yet.

Until now, no player has ever been able to defend his title in the European Open Championship.

Doubles Champions:

The 2016 Men's doubles competition was won by Daniel Nestor and Edouard Roger-Vasselin, who won against Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.

Edouard Roger-Vasselin won his second title at the European Championships when he paired up with Nicolas Mahut in 2018 and won the title for the second time. Later, Nicholas Mahut also won his second doubles title at the European Championships in 2021, when he won alongside Fabrice Martin.

2024 European Open championships:

The European Open Tennis tournament will start on October 14th, 2024.
