General Information


The New South Wales Open has a long history. Tennis players first competed to determine the best player in this competition back in 1885. Since then, the tournament has only been interrupted briefly several times (the last break was in 1986, when it was decided not to hold the Sydney tournament due to the change of the Australian Open schedule).

Most of its history the tournament was played on the courts of the White City Stadium and only in 2000, it was moved to the tennis center of New South Wales, built shortly before that to suit the needs of the Sydney Olympics.

In the last few decades, the women's competition has had a very strong line-up by the standards of its status: for example, players in the WTA Top 30 singles rankings occasionally fail to qualify for the main draw here and have to play an elimination tournament. Since 2012, when the neighboring Brisbane Prize was elevated, the women's competition in Sydney has been partially weakened.
