General Information

Championship of Austria in different statuses has been held since 1894, when it began its existence during the Austro-Hungarian period and was first held in Prague. Due to various events, the competition was interrupted several times, and in 1921 - after the collapse of the empire - the tournament was first held on the territory of modern Austria - in Vienna. The prize was held at local tennis clubs until 1952, after which it changed venues over the next decade and a half, with matches in Salzburg, Pörtschach am Wörthersee, Vienna and Kitzbühel. In 1969, the prize was established in Tyrol and has been held annually ever since.

In 1990, in a group of other professional tournaments, the Kitzbühel competition entered the calendar of the newly formed ATP Tour in its elite part and has since left it only once - in 2010 - due to financial problems, passing as an ATP Challenger category prize.

The organization of the Austrian championship has often drawn positive praise and in 1997, the prize won the best ATP World category tournament award from the ATP.


Open era tournament finals

Guillermo Vilas of Argentina won the most singles titles since the beginning of the Open Era, winning the tournament four times. Emilio Sanchez is the leader in the total number of titles, twice champion in singles and five times in doubles (four of them with Sergio Casal).

Two Austrians won the tournament in Kitzbühel at different times: Thomas Muster won in 1993 and Dominik Thiem in 2019. In Dobles, Stefan Koubek, Julian Knowle and Philipp Oswald became champions.
