General Information


Tennis tournaments have been held in Barcelona since 1903. In 1953 a new tournament was founded by Count Carlos de Godó Valls, who linked its start with the opening of the new complex of the Royal Tennis Club of Barcelona in Pedralbes. A new silver cup on an oak stand, on which the names of the winners were to be inscribed, was made especially for the tournament by the jeweler Soler Cabot. The first winner of the new tournament was the American Vic Seixas. The first tournament was held from July 3-7, but the following year it was moved to the spring, becoming part of the European clay season preceding the French Open.

In 1960, the Royal Tennis Club complex was enriched by a new center court with a capacity of 3,000 spectators. That same year, the Prix Godot was won for the first time by the Spanish player Andrés Jiméno. In 1967, before the Davis Cup match against the Soviet Union the center court was enlarged to hold 8,500 spectators.

In 1968 the Prix Godot with the approval of the Spanish Tennis Federation was given a new name, the International Spanish Championship. In 1969, rains and shifts in the calendar of international tennis tournaments forced the organizers to postpone the Barcelona tournament for four months, for the fall season. Since 1970 the tournament became open, that is, available to both amateurs and professionals. The first Prix Godot in the open format was won by Spaniard Manuel Santana. In 1972, the hosts managed to win the doubles title for the first time.

In 1980, the Barcelona tournament was recognized as the main tournament of the fall season and one of the most important tournaments in the entire tennis calendar. In 1985, the founder of the tournament, Carlos de Godo, was awarded the Olympic Order. Another Spanish aristocrat, IOC President Marquis Juan Antonio Samaranch, presented the order.

In 1990, the tournament calendar was again rearranged due to the formation of the ATP Tour, and the Prix de Godot was again moved to the spring ground season. In the new tournament grid, the Prix Godot receives the second prestige category and enters the ATP Championship Series.

In 1999, the Royal Tennis Club of Barcelona celebrates its centenary in the days of the Prix Godot, which in these years was sponsored by the Seat Open. The "champion of the century" is the Catalan Felix Mantilla.

In 2005 the tournament was won for the first time by Rafael Nadal, who subsequently scored four more victories in a row, thus breaking the record of Roy Emerson and Mats Wilander, who had won the Prix Godot three times in a row in the 1960s and 1980s respectively.

In 2007, for the first time in the tournament's history and in accordance with the new ATP rules, the final match lasted until two sets were won instead of three. That same year, the tournament's grand prize was restored and its stand enlarged to accommodate the names of the new champions.

In 2008, Juan-Maria Tintore, president of the Royal Tennis Club, received a special award from the International Tennis Hall of Fame for achievements over the past 15 years.
