History of the San Diego

The event originated as the Southern California Championships that ran from 1887 until 1978.  Its current form though goes back to the year 1984 when it was formed by Raquel Giscafré as the Ginny of San Diego.

The tournament has had various principal sponsors throughout its history, and has been played under the headings of the Great American Bank Classic, the Mazda Classic and the Toshiba Classic. The tournament is known for its strong player fields, location in the hills and atmosphere.

Although the tournament achieved Tier-I status only in 2004, it became a draw to the heavyweights in women's tennis since its inception in the 1980s, being a crucial warm-up tournament leading to the US Open.

Past champions of the tournament include former world No.-1s Steffi Graf, Jennifer Capriati, Lindsay Davenport, Venus Williams, Martina Hingis, Justine Henin and Maria Sharapova. Six players won the tournament more than once, four of them consecutively. Graf holds the record for most wins (4); Venus Williams holds the record for most consecutive titles (3). 

In 2023,  Barbora Krejcikova claimed an intense final victory over Sofia Kenin, winning the WTA 500 San Diego Open
