Hall of Fame Open: History Of The Competition
Newport first hosted a tennis tournament back in 1881. It was the site of the inaugural national championship, held here until the outbreak of World War I. The ATP Newport, also known as the Hall of Fame Open, started in 1976, with a break in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Hall of Fame Open typically doesn’t see the strongest player lineups. Firstly, the tournament holds an ATP 250 category, which is lower than the prestigious 500 and 1000 events. Secondly, its place in the calendar isn’t ideal. Many players find the grass court challenging and prefer to switch to other surfaces after Wimbledon. The tournament’s location in the US also requires European players to travel far, making it less appealing. Despite this, the tournament often coincides with significant events like the Davis Cup quarter-finals and the Hopman Cup, and the ATP 250 Championships in Båstad and Gstaad.
Because of these factors, the Hall of Fame Open sometimes lacks top 50 players. However, it often sees winners from outside this elite group, including qualifiers and those outside the top 100. Despite the occasional lack of top players, many tennis stars do come to Newport. Each summer, the International Tennis Federation announces new inductees into the Tennis Hall of Fame, and these honorees often attend the tournament.
The matches are played on the grass courts of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, located next to the tennis museum. Besides the courts and historical displays, there’s also a casino, which provides financial stability for the tournament.
