The Delray Beach Open was founded in 1993 as an outdoor clay event, which is somewhat unusual for tournaments based in the United States. After seven years on clay, the event moved to the signature outdoor hard court setting, which has hosted the tournament ever since.

The venue at which the tournament is played is the Delray Beach Tennis Center, which has a stadium with a capacity of 8,200, where all the main matches are being held.

Since the event takes place in Florida, which has a lot of tennis academies and a long history in the sport, it generally features a very solid entry list of players that use it to prepare for the Sunshine Double.

It generally takes place in February, and in recent history, it has been preceded by the Dallas Open, another ATP 250 tournament held in the United States.

The first event on clay was won by native player Todd Martin. Back then, the event was held in Coral Springs before its permanent move to Delray Beach in 1998. Since then, we've seen many prominent players win the event, though Americans have dominated in recent years.

Players like Mardy Fish, Sam Querrey, Jack Sock, Frances Tiafoe, Reilly Opelka, and Taylor Fritz have all won the event in the past. In the past, the tournament was known also as the America's Red Clay Championships and Citrix Tennis Championships, but also as the Delray Beach International Tennis Championships.
