Brasil Open Facts and Trivia
An ATP World Tour 250 series clay court event, the Brasil Open is one of the last tournaments to take place in February. It regularly attracts some of the bigger names in tennis, particularly those of a Latin persuasion. But enough of that, let’s get into some Brasil Open facts and trivia!
Brasil Open Facts
The Brasil Open has been around since 2001. It was initially an outdoor hard court tournament held in Costa do Sauipe, but it became an outdoor clay court tournament in São Paulo in 2011. In 2012 it switched to indoors… but went back to being an outdoor tournament in 2016.
The Brasil Open is a men’s singles and doubles tournament only, and the total prize money on offer here is $455,565.
The current record for most titles is held by Nicholas Almagro, who has taken the Brasil Open trophy home on no less than three occasions. Two of his titles came consecutively, tying him for most consecutive titles with Pablos Cuevas.
Between 2005 and 2013, there was at least one Spanish player in the final of the Brasil Open every year. Moreover, the Spaniards took home the title seven times out of the nine tournaments in that period, with six of those titles (2008—2013) coming consecutively.
Unfortunately, that’s all the Brasil Open facts and trivia I could scrape together. There’s not a whole lot of trivia on this tournament, it seems. But fear not, any new trivia that happens will be added to this page. If you know of anything that should be added (or taken away, for that matter) please feel free to leave a comment below.
