The first ever Stockholm Open Tennis tournament was played in 1969. The Swedish Tennis Legend Sven Davidson had a key role in the organization of this tennis event in Sweden. The World Championship Tennis had reached out to him in March 1969 to help with the prospects of a regular tennis tournament in Sweden. Later that year, the inaugural edition of the Stockholm Open was held. Until 1989, the tournament was part of the Grand Prix Tennis Circuit. Between 1990 and 1994, it was part of the ATP Super 9 series. Since 1995, it has been played as a part of the ATP World Series event.


Location:

The tournament is played at Kungliga tennishallen, which is the most iconic tennis venue in the country. Located in Stockholm, the capital city of Sweden, Kungliga tennishallen was established in 1943 and has served as the venue for Stockholm Open since 1969.


Status and Courts:

The Stockholm Open tennis tournament is now a part of the ATP World tour 250 series. It involves Men's competitions in Singles and Doubles Categories.
