The Delray Beach Open is an ATP World Tour 250 series men’s tennis tournament that takes place in late February. I could say more, but then I wouldn’t have anything to write below the “Delray Beach Open Facts” subheading!

Delray Beach Facts

Founding

The Delray Beach Open was founded in 1993 as an ATP World Series event. It became an ATP International Series event in 1999, and finally an ATP World Tour 250 event in 2009. Up until 2014, the tournament was known as the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.

Surface

Though presently an outdoor hard court event, the Delray Beach Open was initially played on green clay.

Venues

Taking place in Florida, United States, the Delray Beach Open was initially held in Coral Springs. In 1999, however, it relocated to the Delray Beach Tennis Centre. Delray Beach Tennis Centre has a main court arena with a capacity of 8,200.

Champions

No one player has managed to establish a particularly dominant run at the Delray Beach Open. Todd Woodbridge, Jan-Michael Gambill, and Xavier Malisse are all tied for most titles with two each.

Nationally, the United States and Australia has enjoyed the most success at this event. Both nations have had five champions.

One of the United States’ champions was Todd Martin, however; the winner of the very first Delray Beach Open.

Champions Tour

At present, the Delray Beach Open is the only combined ATP World Tour and ATP Champions Tour; the ATP tour for retired tennis players to strut their stuff.

 

Unfortunately, that is all of the Delray Beach Open facts we have for now. This page, like all of our facts and trivia pages, will be kept updated as and when new facts come to light, or old ones become out of date. If you know of any such changes, however, feel free to drop a comment below.
