History of the Berlin Ladies Open

The Berlin Ladies Open, also known as the Bett1open, has a storied history that dates back to its inception as a part of the WTA Tour. The tournament originally thrived on clay courts from 1979 until 2008, under various sponsorship titles. It was discontinued in 2009 but made a significant return to the WTA calendar in 2020, this time transitioning to grass courts. This strategic shift was aimed at leveraging the tournament's timing just before Wimbledon, providing players with an essential opportunity to adjust to grass—an invaluable surface switch from the clay season.
The reintroduction of the tournament as a grass-court event aligns with the broader efforts to expand and enhance the grass season of women's tennis. Berlin, with its rich tennis history and modern facilities, was seen as the perfect venue to host this high-caliber event. The change has been well-received, as can be seen from the top players attending.
