General Information

The tournament was founded on the eve of 1995 season, when organizers from St.Petersburg managed to get for themselves a license of the base series contest which had formerly been held in Zaragoza, Spain. The first draws of the tournament were held in March - at the courts of Peterburgsky SCC, then the competition was shifted to February, and since 2000 - to late autumn. Since 2012, because of shortening the ATP main tour calendar, the Championship of St. Petersburg was moved to September. Year after year, the organizers confidently raised funding for the event and only in 2014 for the first time were forced to abandon the prize, agreeing with the men's tour to move the competition to Israel, where it never took place because of concerns about the safety of the athletes. In 2015, the championship was revived in St. Petersburg with the support of Gazprom, which provided the prize money and moved the playing fields to its Sibur Arena complex.

Over the tournament's history, its prize pool has ranged from the original $300,000 to about $1.1 million (2015). Tennis players originally had to play on carpet, later replaced by hard court. A "Hawk-Eye" video-recording system was installed on center court. During the 2002 tournament, the Russian Tennis Hall of Fame was opened in the mixed zone of the SCC, which, at the time, was supposed to be the base for the Museum of Russian Tennis.
