General Information


The tennis court at the Wiener Stadthalle The tournament was first held in 1974 as the Vienna Open at the Wiener Stadthalle. The prize money was $25,000. It was won by the novice American player Vitas Gerulaitis, who qualified for the main draw, but the tournament caused significant losses to the organizers. The following year the tournament was not held due to a lack of funds, and from 1976 it was known as the Fischer Grand Prix, sponsored primarily by Fischer of Austria, a manufacturer of skiing and tennis equipment.

After Fischer withdrew its further sponsorship in 1985, the role was taken over by Creditanstalt Bank, where the recently ended career of the leading Austrian tennis player Peter Feigl collaborated. The bank remains the general sponsor of the tournament to this day, but the name of the tournament was changed several times, along with the change of the bank's name.

Since 1990, the Viennese tournament was included on the ATP Tour as a tournament in the ATP World Basic category. In 1996 it was upgraded to the medium, ATP Championship Series, and remained in this category (called ATP International Gold since 1998) with a short break until 2008. After another redesign of the ATP Tour grid, the Bank Austria Tennis Trophy was reclassified to the basic ATP 250 category, and its prize pool was reduced by about 20 percent compared to 2008. In 2015, the tournament was renamed the ATP 500.
