ATP Barcelona Open: History Of The Competition
The ATP Barcelona has been hosting tennis players since 1953, with Count Carlos de Godot Valls playing a key role in its formation. After the Royal Tennis Complex opened, which he led, de Godo Valls suggested the idea of an international tournament and even had a silver cup made by jeweler Soler Cabot. The Spanish tournament later joined the Grand Prix series during the open era.
Initially held in the summer, the ATP Barcelona moved to the spring season in 1954, becoming part of the Spring Clay Season, which culminates with Roland Garros. However, changes in the calendar during the Open Era forced the event to be moved to the fall.
The Spanish Tennis Federation granted the tournament the status of the International Championship of Spain, opening it to both amateurs and professionals in 1970. The competition reached a new level in 1980, attracting top players such as Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, and Guillermo Vilas.
After being placed in the second category of the ATP Championship Series, the tournament returned to the spring calendar in 1990. In recent years, it has been officially known as the Barcelona Open Banc Sabadell, with the bank sponsoring the event. Banc Sabadell is the fifth largest bank in Spain and has branches in Mexico and the UK, focusing on small and medium-sized businesses.
