General Information


The first international tennis tournament in Basel was held in 1970. The prize for the winner was a wristwatch.

In 1975 the "St. Jakobshalle" indoor sports complex in Munichstein, a suburb of Basel, began operations and since then the tournament, which became known as the Swiss Indoor Championships, has been held there (since 1990 only matches on the center court, the number of spectator seats around it was increased to 9000, and other matches were moved to another stadium). In 1986, a "tennis village," a major commercial and promotional event, began operating as part of the tournament.

Since 1990, the Swiss Indoor Championships has been included in the ATP Tour's tournament grid as a base category tournament of the ATP World Series. In 1994, the Swiss tobacco company Davidoff sponsored the tournament, increasing its prize pool by more than a quarter in two years.

In 2003, the Basel tournament was inducted into the Swiss Sports Hall of Fame. In 2009, as a result of the transformation of the ATP Tour's tournament grid, it was elevated to the middle category, the ATP 500, and the prize pool almost doubled by a half.


Winners and finalists


The record holder in the number of titles (10 singles) and finals (15 singles and one doubles) is Roger Federer, and he has played in the finals for 10 consecutive years. Yannick Noah has four titles each, winning twice in singles and doubles; Tomas Schmid, Daniel Nestor, Nenad Zimonjic and brothers Bob and Mike Bryan have won four times in doubles (all four times the Americans did it together).
