Elite men’s tennis will return to Hong Kong for the first time in 21 years with an ATP Tour 250 tournament in January 2024. The event, which will be held from January 1-7 at Victoria Park Tennis Centre, was last in Hong Kong in 2002.
The 28-player singles draw tournament will take place on outdoor hard courts and will award participants with total prize money of more than $650,000 (HK$5.08 million).
The last ATP Tour tournament in Hong Kong was played from 1990-2002, with former World No. 2 player Michael Chang winning the title three times – in 1994, 1995, and 1997. Other star players who competed in the tournament included Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Boris Becker, Marat Safin, and Carlos Moya.
Women’s elite tennis will make a comeback in the SAR after a five-year hiatus when the WTA Tour Hong Kong Tennis Open will be held from October 9-15 this year.
