The ATP Houston Open is April’s first event in the ATP World Tour schedule, along with the ATP Casablanca Open. The competition is an ATP World Tour 250 Series event, played on clay with an overall prize money outlay of 442,500 US dollars. The competition has the unique distinction of being the only ATP World Tour event to be played on clay courts in the United States.

Houston is the largest city in the state of Texas, and the fourth biggest in the whole of the United States. The city is well equipped for dealing with sporting events at the highest level. Significant sports facilities in Houston include the Minute Maid Park, the Toyota Center and the Reliant Stadium. These structures host the Houston Astros (Baseball), the Houston Rockets and Houston Aeros (Basketball and Ice Hockey), and the Houston Texans (American Football) respectively.

The ATP Houston Open dates back to 1910 when the Western Lawn Tennis Association encouraged the United States Lawn Tennis Asscociation to establish a National Clay Court Championship to promote clay court tennis across the West coast of the United States.  Following some successful lobbying, the 1910 competition eventually took place in Omaha, Nebraska. 

The ATP Houston Open changed location several times over the years, before settling in Houston in 2001. The event was played on a red clay surface similar to that used at the French Open before the tournament relocated once more in 2007, from the Westside Tennis Club to the River Oaks Country Club. The event is now played on maroon Har-Tru clay at River Oaks.

A number of tennis greats have won this prestigious event. Amongst them are William Tilden, Pancho Gonzalez, Arthur Ashe, Jimmy Connors, Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, Andre Agassi, Michael Chang, Jim Courier, Andy Roddick and Lleyton Hewitt. Pete Sampras and Stan Smith are listed as former runner-ups.

Following the ATP Indian Wells Masters and the ATP Miami Masters, a good number of the world’s best remain in America to take part in this event. It also provides players with an ideal opportunity to hone their clay court game in time for the French Open, which starts towards the end of May.
