History of Open Sud de France

The Montpellier Open is currently part of the ATP Tour 250 series . Founded in 1987, it was held annually in October at the Palais des Sports de Gerland in Lyon until 2009, before being relocated to Montpellier in 2010. The tournament takes place at the Montpellier Arena, holding 7,500 spectators.

The tournament is one of four French events of the ATP Tour 250 series, along with the Open 13, the Moselle Open, and the Lyon Open. It is played on indoor hard courts.

The tournament has seen some of the biggest names in tennis grace its courts, including Pete Sampras, who won the tournament three times in a row from 1991 to 1993.

The Open Sud de France is known for its high-energy atmosphere. It has a reputation for being a launchpad for young talent. For example, Richard Gasquet won the tournament four times, and his victories here helped cement his status as a top player.

The tournament is also known for its unpredictability. In 2022, Alexander Bublik, who was not among the top favorites, surprised everyone by winning the tournament.

The Open Sud de France is not just about tennis; it’s also about entertainment. Every year, the tournament organizes various activities and events for the spectators, making it a fun-filled week for tennis fans.

Look back at Open Sud de France 2021

The tournament in Montpellier showed probably the strongest line-up of players during the three ATP 250 tournaments played in February. The first-seeded Roberto Bautista Agut and no. 2 at Open Sud de France, David Goffin showed their high level throughout the tournament to meet in the final.

On the other hand, youngsters such as Sebastian Korda, Jannik Sinner, Ugo Humbert really disappointed when they didn't manage to get far in the draw. Also, former world number 1, Andy Murray lost in the first round and so the top two seeds fought for the title. And although the Spaniard looked like a small favorite, it was David Goffin who lifted his first trophy since 2017.
