New dates for Stockholm Open 2021
All eyes on Stockholm, November 6-13, 2021
New dates for Stockholm Open were released by the ATP on Thursday, securing Stockholm Open as the only tournament on the regular tour on those dates and also becoming the last stop before the ATP finals.
Stockholm Open will take place on 6-13 November 2021. Tickets available from May 28
The new dates mean that the Stockholm Open extends the 2021 season and creates more playing opportunities for the world elite, which is highly appreciated by the ATP organization.
Ever since the onset of the pandemic, we have required a flexible approach to our calendar, and this continues to be the case. The Stockholm Open’s ability to move to week 45 is much appreciated and we believe this will be a beneficial move for everyone concerned – tournaments, players, and fans. In its new position in the final week of the regular ATP season, the Stockholm Open could play a key role as the final qualification spots for the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals are determined, and we look forward to seeing another successful edition of this historic event, says Andrea Gaudenzi, Chairman of the Board of ATP.
The tournament will be the 52nd Stockholm Open since it premiered in 1969. Since then, the tournament has been a very popular world class tennis event for many players from all around the world, with previous winners such as; Borg, Federer, Tsitsipas, McEnroe and of course the three time winner Thomas Enqvist, also the Tournament Director of the 2021 edition.
We believe we now have a great opportunity to get a really strong line up for the tournament, both due to the Stockholm Opens's good reputation, but also considering that many players on the tour will be available at this time. We already know that there is a large number of fans that are eager to watch great world-class tennis live again. And that is what we intend to deliver, says Thomas Enqvist.
The organization behind the Stockholm Open also works to broaden and further develop the tournament's other activities and engagements. A large part of the focus is to promote the future of Swedish tennis by making the sport more accessible. In addition, both tennis tournaments and activities are currently being created in the city, both on court and off court.
A total of 162 winners have been crowned through Stockholm Opens 52-year history. The singles tennis winners throughout the years from 1969 until today, are presented weekly on Instagram @stockholmopen. Information about this year's tournament and historical flashbacks can also be found at www.stockholmopen.se.
