The Chengdu Open is an ATP 250 hard-court tennis tournament. Each season, the event is held at the Sichuan International Tennis Center in China. In 2016, the first edition of this competition was held. The Chengdu Open replaced the now-defunct Malaysian Open, which previously took place in Kuala Lumpur.

Usually held in the early autumn period, the Chengdu Open is part of the late-season Asian swing across October and November. It is one of four ATP events now held in China. The competition consists of the 32-player singles main draw and the 16 doubles tournament.

In addition, the Sichuan International Tennis Center in China provides a state-of-the-art location for ATP players. At the facility, there are 20 hard courts, 12 indoor courts, and a 6,000-person center court. Due to the strong facilities and increasing reputation of the Chengdu Open, several top players have competed at the event since 2016.

However, the competition did not take place between 2020 and 2022 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Former players who have competed at the Chengdu Open include Taylor Fritz, John Isner, Dominic Thiem, Nick Kyrgios, and Grigor Dimitrov.

Across the five editions of this tournament, there have been five separate winners. In 2016, Russian player Karen Khachanov won the first-ever Chengdu Open after defeating Albert Ramos Vinolas in the final.

Another notable former champion was Spanish player Pablo Carreno Busta, who won in 2019. When the Chengdu Open returned in 2023, ATP Top 10 player Alexander Zverev lifted the Chengdu Open title. He beat Russian opponent Roman Safiullin across three sets in an exhilarating final.
